Roasted Maple Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Yummy sweet potatoes roasted with a maple syrup/cinnamon coating which are crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. These were a big hit as a perfect side for a pork roast – everyone loved them!

The inspiration for these potatoes comes from pumpkinnspice.com and I basically used the same ingredients but added no salt and pepper and adjusted the seasonings to taste as I cooked 4 large potatoes.

Roasted Maple Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

  • large sweet potatoes (the maple syrup mixture coats 3 large potatoes) peeled and diced into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2-1/2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste (optional – I did not add)

Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Place the potatoes in a large bowl and toss with the maple syrup mixture. Spread the potatoes on the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes or so, or until they are nicely browned and crispy.
