Boil, steam or microwave your potatoes. Cinnamon is a hit at my house all by itself, but also try nutmeg and ginger! If your potatoes are a little on the bland side you can add a little brown sugar, just be sure to add it to your calorie count.

Replace butter with unrefined virgin cold pressed coconut oil, the flavor is yummy. You could use 3 tablespoons or less. Matter of how you like them. I actually only use 1 tablespoon or sometimes 2, then my spices.
