These roasted sweet potatoes with maple pecan sauce are the ultimate sweet and savory side dish!


  • 6 small sweet potatoes , halved (about 3 lbs total)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛-¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • cup chopped pecans


  • Preheat oven to 425°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Arrange halved sweet potatoes on the prepared pan, cut side-up.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and rub over the tops of the sweet potatoes so they're covered. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Roast sweet potatoes until tender, about 25-30 minutes.
  • While sweet potatoes are cooking, prepare the sauce.
  • Add butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, and red pepper flakes to a small saucepan set over medium heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes until smooth and combined. Stir in pecans.
  • Spoon sauce over the roasted sweet potatoes and return to the oven for about 5 minutes until sauce is bubbly.
  • Serve immediately, or let cool and store in the fridge until ready to serve. Rewarm in a 350°F oven covered in foil for 30 minutes.
