  • baking dish
  • potato peeler


  • 3-4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 7-10 vegan marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup vegan butter
  • 3 tbsp fresh orange or tangerine juice optional
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Rinse and peel potatoes. Slice into rounds. You can slice as thick or thin as desired, but remember that thick rounds will need a bit longer to bake. Tip: slice about 1/4-1/2 inch wide.
  • Lay the sweet potatoes into your baking dish. Slide the rounds apart a bit so they have some room to breathe.
  • Pour the optional citrus juice over top the potatoes. Optional: zest some of the citrus peel over top for extra citrus flavor.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon and coconut sugar over top the potatoes.
  • Slice up the butter and add in pieces over top the potatoes.
  • Add 2-3 marshmallows to the pan. Stuff then under and in between the potatoes so they are not right on top. Cover with foil.
  • Bake at 425, covered, for 35 minutes. Then remove the foil and add the remaining marshmallows over top. Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes to melt and brown marshmallows.
  • Serve warm.
