These sweet and smokey baked sweet potatoes have caramelized edges with a soft-baked center. They’re the perfect vehicle for your favorite toppings, like greek yogurt, sour cream and herbs.

I love preparing them as a simple side dish to serve during the week with salmon or a hearty salad. The sweet potatoes are rubbed with olive oil, salt, cinnamon and chipotle powder then baked with a little honey until soft and tender.

They’re so flavorful and delicious on their own, but pair so well with a scoop of greek yogurt, flakey salt and fresh herbs. Enjoy them as a side dish for dinner, or as a nutrient rich midday snack.

This recipe takes minimal hands on work and is an easy carb to add to your dinner rotation.

  3. Bake for about 45 minutes. Remove them from the oven and flip them over

If preparing ahead of time, you can bake the potatoes first, top them with the honey, cinnamon and chipotle then finish baking them when ready to serve.

Leftovers will stay good in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. To reheat, warm them in the oven or air-fryer.
