Ingredients

  • 3 medium size Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Avocado OIl
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 tsp Chipotle Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 Large Lime- Juiced
  • salt/pepper

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Rinse the sweet potatoes, slice in half, and cut slits on the inside of the sweet potato (this is going to give more surface area for your spices) I like to cut on a diagonal--just because it looks beautiful when it's cooked.
  • In a small bowl, combine the avocado oil, maple syrup, and spices. 
  • Place the washed and scored sweet potatoes in a large ziplock bag.  Pour the avocado mixture into the bag.  Seal the bag and then shake the bag lightly until all the potatoes are evenly coated in the oil mixture.  
  • Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place the sweet potatoes on the baking sheet and bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes or until the edges are slightly crispy and golden brown.
  • Take the sweet potatoes out of the oven and squeeze the lime juice on top of each potato.  Serve immediately. Enjoy!
