If you have time, soak the potatoes in cold water for at least 30 minutes, or overnight in the fridge. Drain and pat dry. You can skip the soaking step, but it makes the sweet potatoes more crispy.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (218 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with olive oil.
Arrange the sweet potato cubes in an even layer in the baking dish. Add olive oil, brown sugar or Besti Brown (if using), minced garlic, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Stir to evenly coat the sweet potatoes.
Roast sweet potatoes in the oven for about 40 minutes, stirring gently halfway through, until the potatoes are fork-tender and lightly browned.
If using optional toppings: Place pats of butter over the roasted sweet potatoes while they are still hot and let it melt. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and thyme. Stir to coat.

Nutrition info uses Besti Brown (natural brown sugar substitute) for the brown sugar, but you can use regular brown sugar or omit the sugar altogether.
