Cranberry Apple Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes
Stuffed with sweet caramelized apples and cranberries, these twice-baked sweet potatoes are a SUPER easy Thanksgiving side and so much better than any casserole!
Servings 2 servings
- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced into 1-in cubes
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 tablespoons coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 425F. Scrub sweet potatoes clean then dry completely. Place in a baking dish and prick all over with a fork. Roast sweet potatoes at 425F 40-45 minutes or until sweet potatoes are very tender.
While sweet potatoes are roasting, melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Once pan is hot, add apples, cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar and saute several minutes, stirring occasionally until apples are tender. Add pecans and saute 1 additional minute until nuts are incorporated.
Split sweet potatoes open and fluff interior with a fork. Top each with apple cranberry mixture. Bake sweet potatoes at 425F an additional 10 minutes until filling is bubbly. Serve sweet potatoes warm and enjoy!
