Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Coconut

Roastd Sweet Potatoes with Coconut

My husband doesn’t like sweet potatoes, so I made these recently when he was out of town.  They are so good.  If you like sweet potatoes at all, you will love these roasted sweet potatoes with coconut, a bit of honey, and cinnamon.

My picky eater tried them and said, “I’m still not a fan of sweet potatoes, but as far as sweet potatoes go, these are really good!”

    These were awesome. Made them wo cinnamon as I am allergic to it, and they were still very good.
