  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 3 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt (plus more to taste after baking)
US Customary - Metric


  1. Peel and slice your sweet potato. I recommend no thicker than 1/4 inch. But really, more important that thickness is that all the pieces are uniform in thickness, otherwise they won't all bake at the same rate.

  2. In a pot, melt the butter and mix in the maple syrup, cinnamon and salt.

  3. Place the sweet potato hearts in the pot and stir to coat the hearts.

  4. Pour into a small casserole dish and bake at 350 F. for approximately 30-40 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and cooked through.

  5. Allow to cool a bit, salt as needed and serve.
