Thats what I call these delicious scrumptious sweet potato treats.  I used to make this for my family for dinner and then eat the left overs for breakfast.  Unfortunately, for me, my family eats it all now! Everyone loves these.  The recipe is simple.

 

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 Sweet Potatoes
  • Olive Oil or coconut oil (I like the flavor of olive oil but coconut oil is probably healthier)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (add more to your liking)

Directions:

  1. Cube the sweet potato.
  2. Cover with olive oil mix it well so it covers all of the potato.
  3. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Mix well so the cinnamon covers the potatoes evenly.
  4. Bake covered for 45 minutes at 400 degrees.
  5. Take cover off and bake for 10 more minutes so the top can be a little crispy.

Then there you have it!  No sugar added and these are filled with lots of great nutrients.

Sweet Potatoes Nutritional Content

  • vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene)
  • vitamin C
  • manganese
  • copper
  • pantothenic acid
  • vitamin B6
  • potassium
  • dietary fiber
  • niacin

Which for Hashimoto B vitamins are great!

Cinnamon is great as well! Has a high source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Since sweet potatoes have natural sugar in it so if you are trying to lose weight then you may want to keep these out of your diet or just consume them before 12pm.
