2 T honey
2 T canola oil
6 small sweet potatoes, scrubbed and halved lengthwise
salt and pepper
6 cinnamon sticks
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together honey and oil. Rub each sweet potato half with honey and oil mixture. Season potatoes with salt and pepper. Press a cinnamon stick between matching halves of each sweet potato and wrap potatoes in foil.
Place on a baking sheet and roast 30 minutes. Remove foil from potatoes and arrange, skin side up, on baking sheet. Set cinnamon sticks next to potatoes and return to oven. Bake until potatoes and cinnamon sticks brown lightly, about 30 minutes. Transfer to serving platter.
