  • 3 ½ pounds sweet potatoes and yams I choose the most uniform ones slightly larger than bananas
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • Vegetable or coconut oil for roasting


  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Peal the sweet potatoes and yams. Cut into uniform cubes about the size of two dice.
  • In a large rectangular baking dish (10.5” x 14”) toss cubes with cinnamon and salt to coat evenly. Drizzle again and use a spatula to toss.
  • Roast at 450 F for 30-45 minutes, stirring / flipping with a spatula about every 10 minutes. The bites are done when they are tender through and can be cooked until there is a tinge of gold to the outside.
