Roasted Spiced Sweet Potatoes

Today’s recipe is easy, requires few ingredients, and is full of flavor! I am always on the lookout for sweet potato recipes because they are so nutritious. My husband took one bite of these potatoes and said, “Wow! These are really good!”

I take that as a major win, considering he usually does not get excited about sweet potatoes!


A simple blend of warm spices create a savory/sweet side dish perfect alongside most any meal. Plus, the aroma of the potatoes and spices in the oven made the entire house smell delightful! The original recipe called for a tablespoon of butter, but I left it out in the interest of saving some unnecessary calories/fat.

So, let’s take this:


and turn it into this!:


Roasted Spiced Sweet Potatoes


  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of ground ginger
  • Sea salt to taste

1). Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a medium baking dish with cooking spray.

2). Peel and dice sweet potatoes and place in baking dish.

3). Mix sweet potatoes with the olive oil and spices. Toss to coat evenly.

4). Bake in the oven for about 45-55 minutes or until tender. Stir the potatoes once or twice during baking. Top with more cinnamon if desired.

  5. I made this recipe tonight for my family. Added extra cinnamon and a sprinkle of cloves because I was out of nutmeg. My family loved them and I will definitely make them again.

  10. I am the world’s biggest sweet potato fan. I could eat them any time. Usually because I am short on time and for the sake of convenience, I bake them and they taste amazing. I also make wicked soups and all sort of desserts for them. It is time to try a delicious new sweet potato recipe and this is it. I will make this within the next few days and I really look forward to it. Thanks

  11. Thank you so much for posting this wonderful recipe. I made it today for Father’s Day and my dad couldn’t get enough! He LOVED it!
    Thanks again!

    • Hmm I’m not personally not a fan of fruit with my sweet potatoes so I’ve never tried but I think you could, yes! It’s worth a shot. If they don’t turn out the way you want you can always pick them out of the dish.
