  • 4 medium sized sweet potatoes about 1.5 pounds (for about 4 cups diced sweet potatoes)
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and carefully slice them into rounds that are about ½ inch thick. Then slice each round in half, and each half into three pieces. You should have about 4 cups of diced sweet potatoes.

  3. Place the diced sweet potatoes onto the baking sheet, and drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle the spices on, and use your hands to coat the potatoes with oil and spices.

  4. Bake at 425 degrees for about 35-40 minutes, or until lightly browned and caramelized, and tender when pierced with a fork. Stir the potatoes 2-3 times during baking to make sure all sides get roasted evenly.

  5. Season with more salt and pepper if desired.

Recipe Notes

These are best eaten fresh out of the oven, but you can store them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Make a big batch and eat with your breakfast or lunch throughout the week.

Serving size is about ¾ cup of roasted sweet potatoes.
