Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Apples & Cranberries

Maggie Michalczyk, RDN
Roasted sweet potatoes with apples and cranberries make for a delicious Thanksgiving side dish! Simply make with sweet potatoes, apples, fresh cranberries, cinnamon, butter and brown sugar.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Servings 3 servings


  • 4 large sweet potatoes. peeled and cubed or cut into half moon shapes
  • 3-4 apples peeled and cut into thin slices
  • 1/3 cup fresh cranberries
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp. butter melted
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes and apples. I like cutting the sweet potatoes into a half moon shape and same with the apples. Cubed for both would also work.
  • Melt butter in the microwave by heating for 15 second increments until melted. 
  • Toss the sweet potatoes, apples and cranberries together in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon and sugar. Pour melted butter on top and mix everything together until all the pieces are covered in sugar and brown sugar.
  • Place mixture into a baking dish and bake for 30-45 minutes until the sweet potatoes are folk tender. I recommend using a spoon to mix everything about halfway through cooking so that it bakes evenly.
