  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (2-3 potatoes) cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Farenheit (220 degrees Celsius).
  • Peel the potatoes (if you'd like) and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
  • Add the avocado oil and spices to the sweet potatoes. Use your hands to toss everything together until it's well mixed.
  • Arrange the sweet potato in a single layer on a large baking sheet, making sure there's space between the cubes.
  • Roast for 30-35 minutes. Stir the potatoes half way through to ensure all sides are cooked through.



  • If you'd like the roasted sweet potatoes to have a stronger flavor, simply double the seasoning. 
  • Always use a strong, heavy duty baking sheet. It won't warp or bend in the oven.
  • This is a great recipe to meal prep for fall. Check out my Fall Meal Prep video for more ideas!
