Savory Sweet Potato Cubes


  • 4 to 6 sweet potatoes depending on size (enough to fill your pan)
  • Half a sweet onion chopped
  • 4 or 5 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tea thyme
  • 1/4 tea red pepper flakes, if you like it hot add more
  • 1 tea Celtic sea salt
  • Lots of fresh ground pepper
  • 9×13 baking dish
  • 2 to 3 tbsp melted coconut oil (preferred organic)

With all recipes, you can adjust the spices to fit your palate.  The heat from the red pepper flakes I find quite yummy, however, it’s too spicy for my husband.

Mark who gave me the recipe stated to put Lots of red pepper flakes, the 1/4 teaspoon worked well for me.  I also added the onion, what can I say, onion seemed like a must 🙂


  1. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into 1″ cubes (Make it extra fancy and use a crinkle cutter – the ridges catch all the spices)
  2. Melt coconut oil and pour over cubes in 9 x 13″ pan, toss to coat
  3. Add onion, garlic, thyme, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Mix well to evenly coat sweet potatoes
  5. Bake uncovered @ 375 degrees for about one hour, tuning every 20 minutes.
