Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Honey and Cinnamon



What a wonderful combination of flavors!! Small bites of tender, perfectly seasoned sweet potatoes in 30 minutes. I changed the original recipe, by seasoning the cubes with salt and pepper prior to adding them to the honey mixture. I also sprinkled them with cumin once they had been placed on the baking sheet. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes and . . . magic!



  • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling potatoes after cooked
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. Peel and cut the sweet potatoes in 1″ cubes. Season with salt and pepper, toss. Combine the oil, honey and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add sweet potatoes and toss until coated. Place potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with cayenne and roast for 25 to 30 minutes in oven or until tender.
  3. Take sweet potatoes out of the oven, toss them with any of the remaining honey mixture and transfer them to a serving platter.
