Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Bites


  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • up to 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Place a sheet pan in the oven and preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut sweet potatoes into 1/2" pieces or cubes.
  3. Add sweet potato pieces to a bowl with 3 Tablespoons olive oil, pepper and garlic powder. Toss to coat.
  4. Remove baking sheet from oven and line with parchment. Beware, its going to be HOT!
  5. Arrange the sweet potato cubes on baking sheet in an even layer.
  6. Roast the sweet potatoes for 10 minutes, then rotate the pan 180°.
  7. Roast an additional 10-20 minutes, stirring at least once, until the edges are golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and now sprinkle the salt on. Adding the salt after cooking prevents the starchy potatoes from sweating (steaming) in the oven!
