Roasted Sweet Potatoes skin-on with Maple Syrup

Roasted Sweet Potatoes skin-on with Maple Syrup

Introduction

Healthy easy-to-make dish with great aroma. I used olive oil instead of butter in this recipe: I believe, it taste much better this way. Healthy easy-to-make dish with great aroma. I used olive oil instead of butter in this recipe: I believe, it taste much better this way.

    I just had something almost identical to this, so am posting AWESOME! :) I love sweet potatoes and will be trying this with the extra spices I didnt use the first time. I use it as a snack since it's filling and sweet! - 9/26/10

    This smelled so great while it was cooking. My whole family enjoyed it. I didn't add the maple syrup or spices when it came out of the oven. I will be making it again. - 6/5/10

    DId not have lenon juice, used canola oil. Thought it was a little heavy on the cinnamon and nutmeg, but good lower cal option for a sweet potato. - 4/12/10

    Definitely, tastes differ.
    But I'm pretty sure that one teaspoon of cinnamon and half a teaspoon of nutmeg for two potatoes was just correct. Lemon juice, olive oil and maple syrup will blend in the spices just well.
