Cinnamon Sweet Potato Medallions Recipe

Gooey Cinnamon Sweet Potato Medallions Recipe

How many baked sweet potatoes can a person eat?! I know sweet potatoes are a healthier option and I love to feed them to my kids as part of a healthy eating plan, but we all get so bored with same old baked version. This Thanksgiving, I am switching it up and making this Cinnamon Sweet Potato Medallions recipe. They are easy to make, healthy, and have an added trick to get the kids to eat some too!

This sweet potato medallions recipe can be an excellent healthy side dish. It can also be a great way to get the kids to eat sweet potatoes when you melt a marshmallow on top and add a little drizzle of honey. The first time I made these, my three year old ate at least three servings; she kept asking for more! I love tricks that allow me to get healthy foods into their diets in a recipe that they enjoy.
