  • 2 Large Sweet Potatoes
  • ½ Tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 Tsp Smoked Paprika
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  • Cup Chopped Pecans
  • ¼ Cup Shredded Cheese optional
  • Brown Sugar or coconut sugar optional


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F. Place the sweet potatoes in a baking tray and pierce them with a fork, then bake until soft.
  • Once the sweet potatoes are cooked remove from the oven and allow them to cool until ready to handle.
  • Cut each potato in half lengthwise, then gently scoop out the insides into a bowl. Stir in the spices and using a fork mix to combine and mash the sweet potato flesh.
  • Scoop this filling back into the sweet potato skins. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and chopped pecans and return to the oven.
  • Bake at 400°F for 8-10 minutes, until hot and melty. Enjoy!


  • Make sure to preheat your oven before baking the potatoes, otherwise, they'll take longer to bake.
  • You can mix the potato flesh in a food processor, with a masher or - in a pinch - with a fork.
  • To add a lovely smokey, toasted flavor to the pecans, you can toast them with a tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat to add another layer of flavor for twice baked potatoes.
  • If your Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes are not browning up as much as you'd like, you can pop them under the broiler for a couple of minutes.
  • If some of your potatoes are larger than others, you might have to pull the smaller ones out of the oven a bit earlier.
  • For an extra-special presentation, use a piping bag to pipe the flesh bake onto the sweet potatoes - looks gorgeous!
  • Please keep in mind that the nutritional information is calculated using a nutrition facts calculator. It is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
  • Toppings: Cheese, pecans, walnuts, brown sugar, maple syrup, coconut sugar, honey, mini marshmallows. Spices like cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and nutmeg.
