What kinds of foods do you think of when you think of winter? Pumpkin or apple pie, probably. Stuffed turkey, glazed hams, and mashed potatoes. Cookies. Cider or mulled wine, something warm and autumnal to fight off the cold. For a lot of people, candied yams or sweet potatoes covered in brown sugar, butter, and marshmallows were always a staple. These Maple-Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes are my autoimmune protocol-friendly answer to that particular seasonal favorite! Warm, sweet, and bursting with maple and cinnamon, they’re the perfect accompaniment to holiday meals and quick weeknight entrees alike. With only three ingredients and a largely hands-off cook time, they’re quick, cheap, and easy, too!
