  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp butter


  • Preheat your oven to 200°C/395°F (fan forced).
  • Wash the sweet potatoes and cut them into halves.
  • Rub them with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and lay them with the flesh side down on a baking tray.
  • Bake your sweet potatoes in the preheated oven for 35 minutes.
  • Take them out and drizzle with the butter, it will melt right away. I like to top them with additional sea salt.


You can serve them with a green salad or veggies. It's also possible to eat the sweet potatoes as a breakfast topped with banana and almond butter.
