Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls

Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls

Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls – the most tender, soft and delicious cinnamon rolls, a perfect use of sweet potatoes.

It’s Sunday morning and my favorite day of the week for big delicious breakfasts. But you know that already. So these sweet potato cinnamon rolls are perfect for a Sunday morning.

My husband usually does the grocery shopping, so I had asked him to get me a couple sweet potatoes. I initially planned to make stuffed sweet potato skins, but he brought home these huge sweet potatoes, they would have looked just ridiculous if I had stuffed them. So I baked them a couple days ago and since then I’ve been thinking how to use them.
