1-2medium sweet potatoesthe kind with orange-colored flesh
a few tablespoons of almond-butter or other nut-butter or an alternative such as sunbutter or soybutter
a few pinches of cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit
Wash the sweet potatoes, cut out any bad spots, and slice them into quarter-inch-thick circles.
Place the circles on a nonstick cookie sheet or a silicone mat on a cookie sheet.
Place in the oven. Even if it isn't fully preheated yet, you can go ahead and put them in.
Bake for 10-15 minutes (sometimes longer if the oven is still preheating), until poking the sweet potatoes with a fork shows you that they are soft. They should be starting to brown. Watch them closely, because they can go quickly from undercooked to burned.
Spread a dab of almond butter (or alternative) on each slice of sweet potato.
Top with a pinch of cinnamon, and serve warm.
These are oh so good!
