Sweet Potato Dessert
This sweet potato dessert was inspired by my love of sweet potatoes and lazy desserts. It takes about 5-10 minutes of actual labor and leaves you with an easy clean-up afterward. Aside from being extremely satisfying, it is also very nutritious!
This sweet potato is packed with antioxidants, fiber, protein, and tons of micronutrients. The main source of protein comes from the nuts/seeds, and nut butter. This dessert packs about 15 grams of protein just by adding a few tablespoons of hemp seeds. The sweet potato provides fiber and vitamins that support a healthy immune system and brain health.
Baking Sweet Potatoes
- 400 F for 20-45 minutes
- I typically bake my sweet potatoes in the air fryer using the “roast” option. It’s easier than preheating the oven and overall fewer dishes.
- The cook time will differ depending on the type of air fryer you use. I have the Ninja air fryer and am able to fit in 3-4 whole potatoes depending on the size.
- The cook time will also depend on the size of the potatoes. For smaller sweet potatoes aim to bake them for 20-35 minutes while larger potatoes will take about 30-45 minutes.
- 400 F for 35-55 minutes
- I typically use the oven when baking more than 4 potatoes or when I am also baking other vegetables at the same time.
