  • Baking Sheet


  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • tbsp butter
  • tbsp real maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Peel and dice the sweet potatoes then place on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil then season with sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Toss well to coat evenly.
  • Place in the oven to roast for 25 minutes, stirring halfway through bake time.
  • Meanwhile, make the maple brown butter by melting the butter over medium heat in a small saucepan, stirring often, until melted. It will start to bubble, foam, and separate then will turn golden brown with a nutty aroma. 
    Side Note: Watch the butter carefully while cooking because it can burn quickly & easily. 
  • Remove from the heat and pour into a small dish then immediately add the maple syrup and whisk until well combined; set aside until needed.
  • Once the sweet potatoes have roasted for 25 minutes, drizzle the maple brown butter over them then carefully toss to coat. Continue to roast for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and serve. Enjoy.
