Paleo Candied Yams

Sweet potatoes are a mandatory side dish at all holidays. Normally candy yams or most sweet potato dishes are filled with sugar and junk. This year I wanted to make a healthy version that taste just as great.


7 medium sweet potatoes
1/3 cup coconut butter
1/2 cup maple syrup (real stuff)
1 teaspoon cinnamon optional

Start by peeling potatoes but leaving them whole. place peeled sweet potatoes in a large pot of cold water. Turn on heat and bring to boil. Cook at boiling for about 8-10 minutes until a knife can be pushed in but they are not falling apart. They need to be firm to hold shape. Time will depend on thickness of potatoes. Once ready strain potatoes and let cool.
