Sweet Potato Pillow Puffs

Do you like sweet potatoes but you’re bored with the usual preparation method?  Me too!  So I created Sweet Potato Pillow Puffs to keep super-duper healthy sweet potatoes in our menu lineup!  I even went one step further and made this a crock pot recipe for all you busy folks out there who have asked for convenience.  I personally don’t like the skins of the sweet potatoes so I usually peel them but it is totally optional based on your preference.


Sweet Potato Pillow Puffs


  • 2-3 extra large sweet potatoes (or 6-8 small sweet potatoes)

  • 3 Tbsp. coconut oil

  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder

  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup filtered water


  • Peel and chop sweet potatoes into large chunks (approximately 2″x 2″ but don’t worry about being exact).

  • Place water and chopped sweet potatoes into crock pot.

  • Sprinkle with chili powder and cinnamon.

  • Dot the sweet potatoes with the coconut oil.

  • Turn crock pot on low and cook for 6-8 hours.
