I didn’t think I needed to put recipes like this one on my site, but as I started taking on more clients I was surprised how many didn’t know how to bake a sweet potato. So this is a simple but important recipe as there are a lot of things you can do with a baked sweet potato.

Preheat oven to 425°.  Scrub sweet potato to remove any dirt. Lay foil on rack of oven (baked sweet potatoes can make a mess of your oven). Place sweet potato on foil and bake 75-90 minutes. Sweet potato is done when you can squeeze it and it’s soft or put a fork in it and it goes in easily. I like to serve it with butter (if you’re at level 4) and Swerve brown sugar and cinnamon. If you’re on any of the other levels then sprinkle with cinnamon. You can put a little ghee and Swerve brown sugar in it if you’d like.
