  • 1/4 pumpkin spice

  3. Wash each sweet potato really well.  Pierce each sweet potato a few times with a fork or small steak knife

  4. Place sweet potatoes on prepared baking sheet

  5. Check for tenderness after 35 minutes.  If the potatoes aren't fork tender, allow for an extra 5 to 10 minutes

Allow 35 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the sweet potatoes.



Although walnuts are high in fat, they are considered a good source of fat.
