I normally avoid sauces like ketchups and BBQ at all costs because they are full of sugar and contain many unnatural ingredients.  However, this barbque sauce however, contains only 4 grams of sugar in comparison to the 13-15 grams in most others & its made of all natural ingredients

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Slice the sweet potato lengthwise into centimeter thick slices
  3. Drizzle with olive oil & toss in bowl to spread onto the slices.  Top with paprika & sea salt IMG_3766
  4. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil
  5. Bake until edges are crispy, about 20-30 minutes depending on how crispy you like them
You can even top with a little white cheese such as gruyere fontina, havarti, or swiss.
