Roasted Hot Honey Sweet Potatoes

November 16, 2022

These Roasted Hot Honey Sweet Potatoes are the ultimate side dish to make and they’re made with minimal ingredients, are dairy-free and gluten-free.

Hot honey sweet potatoes are absolutely AMAZING! They’re caramelized and cinnamony and have the crunch from pecans and spice and sweetness from the hot honey right on top. Plus these are an easy side dish to make whenever and especially for Thanksgiving.

You are going to find all of the good flavors here – sweet potatoes with crispy edges and toasted pecans plus the spicy hot honey right on top and when the fries are warm – this combo is unbeatable. I love making these for holidays or to serve with roasted chicken and a brussels sprouts salad of sorts.

Tip: drizzle the hot honey on top right before eating! Otherwise they can get a bit soggy with the honey on top.

What ingredients are needed to make Hot Honey Sweet Potatoes:

  • Sweet potatoes – peeled and sliced into thick-cut wedges almost like fries
  • Olive oil or avocado oil – either oil can work here
  • Cinnamon – I love adding cinnamon onto the sweet potatoes. It adds the best flavor to them!
  • Maple glazed pecans – or use raw pecans but they add the best crunch
  • Hot honey – you can use a store bought one (which is what I usually do) or make your own hot honey!

How to make hot honey sweet potatoes:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Place the sweet potatoes onto the baking sheet and drizzle the oil, salt, pepper, and cinnamon over the top and mix well (hands work best for this job) then spread the sweet potatoes out in a single layer
  3. Roast the sweet potatoes for 35 minutes, or until they are soft and starting to brown on top
  4. Sprinkle the pecans over the top and return the baking sheet to the oven for 5-7 minutes, until the pecans are golden and smell fragrant
  5. Serve while warm with desired mains or other sides

Tips for success making these:

  • If you don’t love spice – use less hot honey. Or use regular honey instead. And on the opposite end,  you can add some cayenne too to them if you are craving them more spicy as well!
  • I love adding the pecans here for an extra crunch but you can also use walnuts, chopped almonds, pistachios or any nuts you’d like. You know I love having a crunch in everything so it really makes these even more amazing to eat
  • When it comes to prepping these in advanced, I recommend adding the hot honey on top right before serving. Simply roast the potatoes for 35 minutes to cook them then right before serving, add the pecans and roast a bit
