Glazed Sweet Potatoes
When looking for a healthy side dish for dinner I often turn to sweet potatoes. I have a very picky eater in my house and because this Cinnamon And Honey Glazed Sweet Potatoes recipe tastes like candy (in a healthy way!), it is something that my son will eat.
Always vegetarian, paleo, egg-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free, some would also consider it vegan. It does contain honey, so depending on whether your vegan diet includes honey or not, it would be your decision to make.
Whether you ultimately pair this with your ham or turkey for Thanksgiving or serve it with meatloaf for a midweek meal, your family is going to love this new side dish.

Cinnamon Honey Glazed Sweet Potatoes Recipe
2 cups sweet potatoes, diced
1-2 Tbsp honey (based on personal preference)
1 tsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Nonstick cooking spray
Walnuts, pecans, pine nuts, or dried cranberries (optional additions, but not included here)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Wash, peel, and dice your sweet potatoes into small, bite sized pieces (or if you’re in a hurry you can grab a bag of prepared cubed sweet potatoes in the frozen vegetable section of your grocery store.)
Place the sweet potatoes in a medium-sized bowl and mix with honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut oil, salt and pepper until well coated. You can also mix in pecans, pine nuts, walnuts or dried cranberries should you choose.
Spread your sweet potato mixture out on the baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes until tender (test with a fork) and the edges have browned.
Fresh sweet potatoes will take longer to cook than the frozen, so keep that in mind! Once ready, place the sweet potatoes in a serving dish and add an additional drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
