Addictive Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds

Yield: 2 Servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

These irresistible sweet potato rounds are crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, and so easy to make using any oven!

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces sweet potatoes, washed and dried
  • 2 teaspoons oil (we used melted coconut oil)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine grain sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F. If using a toaster oven, select the BAKE setting and adjust the cooking rack to the lowest placement. Lightly oil a roasting pan or baking sheet.
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch rounds.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the slices, oil, cinnamon, and salt. Toss well to coat.
  4. Arrange rounds in a single layer on your prepared pan.
  5. Bake sweet potato slices for 10 minutes. Carefully remove the pan and flip the rounds with a fork or spatula.
  6. Return to the oven and cook until the sweet potatoes are golden and caramelized about 8 to 10 minutes more.
  7. Serve rounds plain or with your favorite toppings.

Notes

Convection Toaster Oven: Reduce the temperature to 400°F and begin checking sweet potatoes for doneness after 15 minutes, adding more time as needed.

Oil: Coconut oil tastes great with the cinnamon but you can use any oil you want. Olive oil and avocado work well too.

Seasonings and Toppings: Have fun and experiment. Try olive oil with chipotle powder or garlic salt for a more savory snack. Keep scrolling after the recipe card for lots of ideas.

For the best rounds look for thinner sweet potatoes that are an even width.

  1. I can’t wait to try these! I plan on making them for a Super Bowl party. Please tell me why the coconut oil. I have made them in the past (but without the yummy toppings) with olive oil.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Sharon!

      The coconut oil is not required, I just think it tastes great paired with the sweet potatoes and the cinnamon. I’ve updated the recipe card to note that you can use any oil you’d like, olive oil and avocado oil are fantastic options too.

      Thanks for the question, I’m sure others have had it too 🙂

      I hope you enjoy the rounds and have a fun Super Bowl party!

  2. My husband likes his sweet potatoes topped with butter, drizzled honey and McCormicks GrillMates Smokehouse Maple sprinkled on top!

    1. WOW!! Norma, that sounds amazing. Off to buy a jar of Smokehouse Maple seasoning ASAP – thanks for the great suggestion 🙂

    1. Yes!! We started topping our baked sweet potatoes with goat cheese. The flavor & texture combination, especially with a little brown sugar, pecans, & a light dusting of cayenne.

  3. Hi, Brie – Once again your beautiful photography caught my eye! We wanted a very light dinner and tried the sweet potato pizza bites. They were very easy and delicious. There are several other options you listed that we will also be trying. Never grew up eating sweet potatoes but I think they will now be a regular part of our diet. Cooking the slices in the oven will enable me to add many different toppings, and it will be fun to experiment. What a great way to add a healthy food to our diet. Thanks for sharing the recipes..and Happy, Healthy New Year to you and Tim. Peggy

    1. Thank You, Peggy, you’re the sweetest!

      I can’t wait to hear about all your experiments, sweet potatoes really do pair well with anything so don’t be afraid to get a little wild. Our new favorite topping combo is scrambled eggs, cheese, avocado and jalapeño slices – those chilies you told me about would be a great swap for the jalapeño 🙂

      Best wishes for a delicious and fun start to 2018 for both you and Dell!

  4. Crazy yummy! I did a trial run on these as a New Years appitizer. They were so good plain that I’m going to have a hard time putting anything on them. How are they cold. I’d like to make ahead so as to spend more time with guests.

    1. Yay! Glad to hear you enjoyed them Angie 🙂

      You’re so smart to plan ahead, then you can party and mingle instead of being stuck in the kitchen. Way more fun for you and your guests!

      You can totally make the rounds ahead of time, they reheat well and taste good at room temperature too.

      This year, we made 3 batches (with just oil and sea salt!) the day before our family’s Christmas Eve potluck. I under-cooked the rounds by about 2 minutes, cooled and bagged them. Then, before the party we popped them in a 425F oven for a few minutes to warm and re-crisp a little. They cooled down after we set them out and everyone still enjoyed them!

      I hope you have a fabulous party, Happy (early) New Year!

  5. I have just made the sweet potatoes for lunch today. They are sooooooooooooo good!!! I spiced them with garlic powder and chili and didn’t brush them, but mix them in a bowl with the spices and coconut oil before baking them. I am sure I will make them again and again.

    1. So glad you enjoyed them, Adina! Garlic powder and chili with coconut oil sounds like the perfect sweet and spicy combination. Merry Christmas to you and the family 🙂

    1. Thanks, Grace! I know pumpkin gets all the love but I’m with you, sweet potatoes and all their root veggie siblings are the best. Hope you guys enjoyed a delicious and peaceful thanksgiving filled with lots of sweet potato dishes 🙂
