Delicious sweet and healthy, low-sugar sweet potatoes that taste like they're mixed with maple syrup Delicious sweet and healthy, low-sugar sweet potatoes that taste like they're mixed with maple syrup
Number of Servings: 5


    Three medium sweet potatoes, all-natural maple extract (I found mine at Whole Foods), though vanilla or almond extract would probably work as well, three packets of Truvia, a liberal sprinkling of cinnamon (2-3 tablespoons)


First, cook sweet potatoes, either by baking (wrapped in tin foil) at 350 for about an hour, or by microwaving (cut off ends, poke holes all over sweet potatoes with a fork, place on a plate covered with a damp paper towel, microwave for 4 min, then turn over, then microwave for another 4 min, etc., until potatoes are slightly soft to the touch).

Cut potatoes into approx 2" pieces, put in a large bowl and mash, either with a fork, a potato masher, or a handheld mixer. Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Maple extract, three packets of Truvia, and a very liberal sprinkling of cinnamon. I measure it out into about 1/2 c. servings (three medium sweet potatoes made me about 5 1/2 c. servings) and refrigerate it in snack-sized ziplock bags to bring to work and microwave for lunch and dinner. Enjoy!!

    Thank you for posting this simple yet tasty treat, it is even great for breakfast!
    I made my potatoes in the microwave, I cook them 2 at a time for 5 mins each side then turn. I will try them in the zippy bags for lunch too. - 4/29/10

  • Great ! tastes almost like a casserole with those little marshmellow, but much lower in fat. - 10/25/11

  • I don't know if I did something wrong. :-( I used 2 Tbsp of cinnamon, and added some almond breeze and a bit of butter... and it is WAY too cinnamony... to the point of wishing I had another potato to cook and mix in (can't taste the maple at all and they are brown, not orange like yours) - 8/16/10

  • Very tasty, though I did add some milk to make them a little but more creamy and smooth. Will be making these again! - 7/20/10
