Sweet Potato Cranberry Bites

Festive, easy, and yummy! Is there a better combination? These Sweet Potato Cranberry Bites are a perfect appetizer for a low-key holiday this year. Inspired by our Spice Up the Holidays Collection, we used The Fennel Countdown Spice Blend to add some herby-ness to these sweet and zesty bites. Kicking these up a notch, the crunchiness from the pecans, brings the whole bite together. Give them a try, they’re a must this year!


Makes 4 servings


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a 9x13 baking tray with parchment and spray with olive oil.
  2. Place the sweet potato slices on the tray and spray the tops with olive oil. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Once softened and golden, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, make the goat cheese topping: In a small bowl, add the goat cheese, yogurt, The Fennel Countdown, a pinch of sea salt, a pinch of pepper, and orange zest. Mix until combined (achieving a whipped-like texture).
  4. Space the cooled sweet potato rounds on a small cutting board or serving platter. Add a spoonful of the goat cheese mixture on top of each round. Next add a spoonful of the cranberry sauce.
  5. Top the rounds with the chopped pecans, extra orange zest, and drizzle with honey. Enjoy!
