These cute little pumpkins are not difficult to make, and you can play around with your favorite spices on them!

Oven 350 degrees

Ingredients:

1 Large sweet potato sliced on the thinnest setting with a mandolin slicer, or thinly sliced by hand

3 TBS of melted ghee or melted coconut oil

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp cinnamon *or for a more smoky taste, skip the cinnamon and use smoked paprika*

Directions:

1. Slice the sweet potato:

2. With a small sharp knife, carve the face into each pumpkin (this is not as difficult as it looks, I actually did it fairly quickly. Poke the faces out. I saved the pieces I cut out for another recipe (can be sauteed with other veggies, mixed with eggs, etc)
