Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

These sweet potatoes are so easy to make, and are both healthy and delicious. The potatoes are tossed with a bit of olive oil, honey, lemon juice, and salt. I also sprinkled on a little cinnamon because I love the warm flavor of cinnamon with sweet potatoes. Roasting the potatoes in the oven brings out their natural sweetness.

I served my potatoes alongside this brown sugar spiced pork loin. This side dish is definitely going to be one of my fall and winter staples, as I see myself making it again and again.
