Baked Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are edible roots in the morning glory family. They are a great source of vitamins A and C with less carbohydrates than Irish (baking) potatoes.

Baking is a simple way to prepare sweet potatoes. They can also be diced and roasted with other vegetables.


4 medium sweet potatoes, washed
½ teaspoon olive oil
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup low fat vanilla yogurt (optional)


Rub each potato equally with olive oil. Place in baking dish. Bake in 375 degree oven until potatoes are fork tender. Check after 40 minutes. If not tender, continue to cook another 10-15 minutes.

Remove from oven, slice open length wise. Top each potato with cinnamon and portion of the yogurt. Serve hot.

Create your own:

Other topping options:
Butter, nutmeg, honey, brown sugar, salt & pepper, sour cream, dried herbs
