Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes

This is hardly a recipe.  It’s just the best and easiest (and my new favorite) way to cook sweet potatoes! I love throwing these in the crock pot on Sundays before we leave for church.  We go to church from 1pm-4pm so by the time I get home my stomach is growling.  Something about three hours of church makes me really hungry.  I can’t wait another hour and a half to cook sweet potatoes in the oven, not gonna happen,  I’d eat my entire pantry first.  

We like to throw some chicken or steak on the grill real quick and serve it with a sweet potato and a side salad.  Super easy and healthy. 

All you do for these is wrap the sweet potatoes in foil and throw them in the crock pot.

And they turn out so unbelievably perfect.    They don’t really need any doctoring,  but we like to put a little bit of whipped coconut oil & cinnamon on ours.  We also like to make extra for us to eat throughout the week for lunch and for Brett to take to work.

  1. 4 large sweet potatoes
  2. foil
  1. Wash sweet potatoes and pat dry. Wrap each potato in foil and place in the slow cooker. (I recommend spraying the bottom of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Some of the juices will ooze out of the foil and stick to the slow cooker).
  2. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4.
  1. if you are around check softness of sweet potatoes to make sure you don't over cook--every slow cooker cooks differently.
boys ahoy

    Easiest thing ever! Love when that happens!

  3. […] think about throwing the sweet potatoes in there too.  But, my sweet friend Kristy over at Sweet Treats and More does it all of the time and once the idea entered my mind, there was no leaving it!  Thanks […]

    So easy, so healthy. I love how I can avoid using the oven in the summer too! I shared the idea on my blog today with nutritional information . . . . linking back to yours, of course. Thanks for the awesome idea! Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and beaches! Miss you!
