  • 4 large sweet potatoes (peeled)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • Maple Aioli:
  • 1/2 cup organic mayo (I use Primal Kitchen’s avocado oil mayo)
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. pink Himalayan salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Slice the ends off each sweet potato and discard. Slice the remaining into 3/4 in. slices and place onto a lined/greased baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over all slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Use a pastry brush to thoroughly brush oil and spices over all slices.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes, or until tender.
  5. While sweet potatoes are baking, combine aioli ingredients into a small mixing bowl and whisk together. Cover and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  6. Remove potatoes from oven and using a fork, lightly smash in the center of each disc and transfer to serving platter. Serve maple aioli on the side and drizzle as much as desired.
