There are one million and one ways to make roasted sweet potatoes. They are one of the most versatile vegetables and can be dressed up in many ways ranging from savory to sweet. Here is just one way that I like to prepare these for meal prep.
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
Seasoning blend: 1 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp black pepper, ½ tbsp lemon granules, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp freshly ground nutmeg, 1 tsp ancho chili powder, 1 ½ tsp Herbs de Provence, ½ tsp smoked paprika.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, arrange your sweet potatoes into a single layer.
Drizzle a layer of olive oil over the potatoes and then sprinkle over the seasoning blend (you may or may not use all of it – if you don’t, save the rest from chicken, it’s incredible).
Using your hands, toss the potatoes so that they are evenly coated.
Roast in the oven until the insides are tender when pierced with a toothpick.
NOTE: For meal prep, I tend to “under roast” my potatoes because I do not want them to become too soft after reheating for a meal.
Divide into meal prep containers after the potatoes have cooled.
I made these so I snack on 3-4 of them while at work instead of eating something processed or unhealthy.
-1 cup oat flour
-1/2c coconut flour
-2 mashed bananas
-1tsp vanilla extract
-1/2tsp ground cinnamon
-2tbsp peanut butter
-1 scoop vanilla protein powder
-pinch of pink salt
Blend 1 cup of rolled oats in a blender until it becomes oat flour. Transfer to a bowl and add in the rest of the dry ingredients. Add in the peanut butter and mashed banana until it forms a big ol ball. Then separate 14 little balls and there you go!
I think itd be super awesome to roll these in chocolate chips, or flax seeds etc but I just made this as a plain version.
This is a super versatile recipe, I’m sire you can easily switch things out and make a pumpkin spice or a chocolate version.
Can’t even begin to say how easy this meal prep was! I made two of these little salads 3 days ago & it was still so so good! Used shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken, black beans, diced tomato, & I added avocado today (so that it stayed fresh), all on a bed of lettuce.
