Dessert Style Sweet Potato Bake (JT's Fav)


If you like sweet potato pie then this is your recipe! You will be surprised at how sweet and satisfying the natural flavor of sweet potatoes can be when your sugar intake is low!It is JT's favorite way for me to prepare sweet potatoes and it is on the weekly rotation at our house.

Ingredients

3 Large Sweet Potatoes (the thinner the easier the slice!)

2-3 T Melted Light Butter

½ T Cinnamon (could substitute apple pie seasoning here)

2-3 T Baking Splenda

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Wash and peel 3 large sweet potatoes. Cut the sweet potatoes into slices. Then cut the slices to make small cubed pieces and set aside in a medium bowl.

3. Melt butter and pour over diced sweet potatoes and toss until they are coated. Add cinnamon and Splenda and mix well.

4. Lightly coat a large glass-baking dish with olive oil and pour the sweet potatoes in and cover with tin foil (seal as tightly as you can!). Cook in preheated oven for 40-55 minutes or until tender.
