Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes


We love roasted sweet potatoes cold on salads, grain bowls, or warm for breakfast or a side dish. Sometimes my kids gobble them up as a snack right after I take them out of the oven. This is a sweet and savory version that we all enjoy. I usually double the recipe as we use them up quickly.
