Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Cranberries

Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Cranberries - perfect thanksgiving side dish for a real food celebration!

Why aren’t more things cinnamon roasted?!  When eating clean you find out that your spice cabinet is your very best friend.  Most nights consist of Matt and I just testing out new flavor combinations by throwing any old spice into a dish and seeing if it tasted good.  One thing I have learned to be true is that cinnamon and sweet potatoes go together.  I have added cinnamon to my sweet potato fries before and always love it. Cinnamon is the perfect spice to compliment the sweetness of the sweet taters and adding cranberries was necessary!  Not only does it scream fall, but when you roast cranberries they become so perfectly tart, release their juices and become little pockets of flavor. I also added just a little maple syrup for additional sweetness and coconut oil to get those crispy edges on the taters.  I envision this on your thanksgiving table and all of your relatives going “oooooooooh!!” and “ahhhhhhhhh!!!”  Trust me, dishes with beautiful colors get the most love.  Much prettier than those boring mashed potatoes (not that those aren’t amazing).  Thanksgiving is just one of those holidays you gotta be a show stopper.  Best part?  It’s SO simple.  See…..?

Throw it all together!

    Those look really good! For health reasons, we\’ve had to cut way back on our sugar intake, even our old fave, maple syrup, so I\’ll have to omit that one ingredient, but our palates have adapted to less sugar, so I suspect we will find these almost as tasty. Thanks for a fun new recipe!

    I’m making this for a work party. One of my coworkers is on a strict diet and I think she would LOVE this. My question is would I be able to make this the night before and reheat it?

    I saw this on Pinterest a few days ago – and ended up making it for Thanksgiving! It was just the right balance for me of easy and festive – we really like it, and I will make it again.

    My, cinnamon is good with sweet potato…

        I’m not sure on the rating yet. I made this recipe for some guests coming for dinner tonight. I was a bit disappointed that the sweet potato and cranberries burned and stuck to the parchment paper. I think I lost about half the cranberries (I couldn’t get them off the parchment paper). Is it supposed to do that? Or maybe my oven is a little hot (I used the 400 degrees that recipe calls for)? I’ll have to let you know later how it tastes. I hope it still tastes okay!
