Roasted Sweet Potatoes with maple syrup (or honey) & cinnamon

Choose your own adventure; maple syrup or honey plus cinnamon on oven roasted sweet potatoes. It’s delicious enough to stand alone, and not too sweet to enjoy over quinoa if you’re extra hungry. In other words, it’s the perfect complement to any fall day.

Did I mention it’s also quick and easy to prepare? Mark whipped this together in about a half hour, and you should too!
