I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! Fit Moms this tastes like you are eating little nuggets of pumpkin pie, or candy! These are to die for! How did I get this amazing recipe? Well for a few of my pro beach volleyball events this year I played with the fabulous Priscilla Lima. I wouldn’t have snacks on hand, but Priscilla was ALWAYS prepared, with the yummiest healthy treats, which of course she shared with me. Thanks @PriLimaBeachPro and @Level10_Fitness for the tasty carbs and good fats that keep me energized during our events! Fit Moms, you can make these delicious roasted coconut sweet potatoes ahead of time, put them in the fridge and take them in a reusable storage container to have your kids snack on during their sports events. Try it! They won’t want to stop eating these healthy treats, and neither will you.
Delicious Roasted Coconut Sweet Potatoes
adapted from recipe given to me personally by Level 10 Fitness
3 medium sweet potatoes (cut into 1/4″ thick circles)
1 1/2-2 TBS organic coconut oil melted in saucepan
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tsp brown sugar, or turbinado, or sucanat (optional, doesn’t really need it)
*optional sprinkle with sea salt
Toss all the ingredients in a bowl or reusable plastic bag until sweet potatoes are coated. Spread the potatoes on a large baking sheet. Roast in 350 degree oven for about 1 hour turning over occasionally until caramelized and soft.
