Apple-Sweet Potato Bake

Tired of plain, baked yams as your go-to PWO carb supplement? This is a nice change of pace with a bit of a Thanksgiving twist. So easy.

Ingredients:

  • 6 small sweet potatoes (the yellow-fleshed tuber)
  • 2 apples
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries*
  • Cinnamon
  • Ghee or clarified butter
  • Sea salt
  • Coconut oil
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease the inside of a large casserole dish with coconut oil.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and apples. Chop into uniform pieces, ~1/2″ dice.
  • Place half the chopped sweet potato/apple into the dish. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup cranberries, a dusting of cinnamon, and a pinch of sea salt.
  • Repeat with remaining sweet potato, apple, cranberry, cinnamon and salt.
  • Dot the top with small pieces of ghee.
  • Bake covered  for ~1 hour or until the potato and apple have softened.
*For the love of Christmas…don’t use dried, sweetened cranberries, especially Ocean Spray or the like. They are usually loaded with sugar and tossed in canola oil (yuck…Omega-6-laden nastiness). The apple and sweet potato will more than offset the tartness of the berries. I usually stock up with several bags of fresh cranberry this time of year and freeze them for convenient addition to any dish throughout the year.
