These Roasted Cinnamon Garlic Sweet Potatoes are savory, sweet, and just a little bit spicy. Diced sweet potatoes are tossed in garlic-infused olive oil then seasoned with cinnamon, Kosher salt, black pepper, and an optional pinch of cayenne (if you like a little heat), then roasted until tender and lightly caramelized. This tasty side dish takes just minutes of prep work and finishes in the oven for a totally easy hands-off dish.


  • 636 g / 4 cups (about 1 large or two medium) sweet potatoes with skins left on, diced
  • 2 tbsp garlic-infused olive oil -- OR -- 2 tbsp olive oil + 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • Optional: 1/8 - 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F / 220 C. Line a baker's half sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Transfer the diced sweet potatoes to the lined sheet pan. Sprinkle with garlic oil, cinnamon, salt, pepper, and if desired, the cayenne pepper. Toss by hand to combine.
  3. Transfer the pan to the oven to rest for 25-30 minutes or until fork-tender, lightly caramelized, and skins are crisp. Serve warm.
