This great little snack is packed full of both fiber & protein and you wouldn't even know that it's healthy because it tastes like a little PB & chocolate ball. These healthy snacks keep well for a week or so in the refrigerator and they're great to have on hand as a go-to option as opposed to having something unhealthy (like cookies in my case).

1/2 cup natural peanut butter or almond butter

This is a simple side dish, which can be prepared even more quickly if you use a mandolin to slice the potatoes. I added some chili flakes to each layer to give the potatoes a little kick. The chili is completely optional. The potatoes taste great served with sour cream or any other sauce/condiment of choice.
Slice the potatoes and the sweet potatoes.
Add a layer of the sweet potatoes topped with salt, pepper, butter, parmesan and a pinch of chili flakes.
Repeat the layers until you've used up all the potatoes. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
Sweet Potato-Potato Bake
1 large sweet potato, thinly sliced
2 red potatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 tsp chili flakes
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
2-3 tbsp butter
I love to eat! I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past few years. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
