Roasted Balsamic Sweet Potatoes Recipe

   Sweet potatoes are a staple food in my daily diet. I've always loved the taste, and they also help to make me feel more full for longer! I eat them so regularly that I often try to change them up a little bit as an attempt to keep things more interesting! I find this recipe to be a wonderful, unique twist on an original sweet potato recipe!

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Peel and chop both sweet potatoes into small cubes
  3. Set a large skillet on medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to the pan
  4. Once the pan heats and coconut oil is melted, add your balsamic vinegar and coconut sugar to the skillet and bring them to a boil until the balsamic becomes a thicker syrup-like consistency (frequent stirring helps this process)
  5. Add your 1 tablespoon of coconut butter to the mix and continue to stir for approximately 8-12 minutes
  6. In your saucepan, add your sweet potatoes and toss, then coat them with the balsamic mixture
  7. Line the bottom of a separate baking sheet with a layer of coconut oil and transfer your sweet potatoes onto the sheet and season with ground black pepper 
  8. Set baking sheet into your oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until tender 
  9. Remove from your oven and drizzle the finished product with some brown sugar
  10. ENJOY xo
