Whole30 Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

Small slits by “hasselbacking” your veggies create big flavor as these sweet potatoes caramelize in the oven, making every bite creamy with the perfect amount of delicate crunch.  Olive oil, avocado oil, ghee, or coconut oil are all wonderful cooking fats to coat your sweet potatoes in and increase your body’s ability to absorb all of the essential vitamins found in whole foods.
