Preheat the oven to 425F. ​

Wash your sweet potatoes and poke a few holes in each one for efficient cooking. ​

Place on a foil lined baking dish and bake for 50 minutes, until you can easily insert a knife into each one. ​

Remove from the oven and let sit to cool for 10 minutes. ​

Slice the top of each sweet potato and press in the ends to open the sweet potato like an envelope. ​

Mash up the insides gently with a fork and add ¼ teaspoon ginger powder (or fresh minced ginger), cinnamon and nutmeg to each potato.​

Optional Additions: 1 tbsp ghee, walnuts, candied ginger, pumpkin seeds, maple syrup, or chili for a hearty loaded sweet potato.​
