Baked Maple Cinnamon Apples And Sweet Potatoes

This cooler weather here in Tennessee is bringing out all the fall baked goods! I wanted to share some of our fall family favorites that are easy, delicious, and super kid-friendly. These aren’t your grandmother’s typical baked apples – that were most likely cooked in hydrogenated oils, refined brown sugars, and loads of butter. These are so much healthier and less processed and don’t worry, the flavor is still all there! Not to mention sweet potatoes are loaded in nutrients and essential vitamins. I love to serve them family-style on a large platter in the middle of the table...
