The coconut oil just gives the sweet potato a hint of coconutty taste.  The sweet potatoes come out crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I love them paired with the tangy apple and spicy cayenne, but the plain batch got eaten up just as quickly with just a dash of salt.  The sweet potatoes really seemed to cook quickly compared to regular potatoes, so do keep an eye on them. 



Look for coconut oil in you health foods section or health food stores.  You can also find it on Amazon.
