Vanilla Spiced Roasted Sweet Potatoes. As if sweet potatoes weren’t sweet enough … 🙂
Sweet Potatoes. I could live on them. They’re such a versatile root vegetable that is AMAZING when cooked.
When I’m in a hurry, I’ll throw a few in my Instant Pot and 15 minutes later, I’d have a few taters for the week. I love to have them for breakfast … loaded! There’s just nothing better than topping a steamy sweet potato with nut butter and crunchy bits. Ahhh, it’s the little things.
However, when I want to deepen that sweet flavor, my sweet potatoes will get a nice roast in the oven. Diced, sliced, wedged, or whole, there’s just something about a roasted sweet potato … or any potato for that matter.
Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to spruce them up. They’re sweet enough for breakfast and even for dessert (I would even add some vanilla ice cream on top with a few squares of baked pie crust pieces.) OH, YUM!
The little squares get a nice coating of vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and love. Lots and lots of love. Such a perfect combo.
