Ingredients


2.5 lbs. sweet potatoes (6 cups baked and mashed)

1 1/4 cups Splenda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 cup light butter
(We used Land O Lakes Light Butter.)

1 cup fat free milk

1/4 cup sugar free syrup
(We used Cary's Sugar Free Syrup.)

2 Tbsp. sugar free honey
(We used Honey Tree's Sugar Free Imitation Honey.)

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 large eggs, beaten

Topping

1 cup Splenda

1/2 cup white wheat flour

1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

2 Tbsp molasses

1/4 cup light butter
(We used Land O Lakes Light Butter.)

1/2 cup water


This recipe is higher in calories and sugar than a typical healthy side dish. The reason it's here is because we wanted a recipe that was tasty but "healthier" than the typical holiday sweet potato casseroles. We reduced the calories in the original version of this dish from over 700 to 282.

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then use a fork and poke a few holes in each of the sweet potatoes. Put them on a baking sheet and then in the oven. Let sweet potatoes roast for 45 minutes to an hour. (Don’t simply put them on the bare racks to cook. When you poke holes in them, they are likely to leak and drop juices onto the bottom of the oven.)

2. Once sweet potatoes are cooked, remove them from the oven and let them cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Slice them in half, remove and discard the skin. Put the sweet potatoes in a large mixing bowl and smash them with a fork or potato masher.

3. Stir in the next seven ingredients, Splenda through eggs. Then pour the sweet potato mixture into a 9x13 inch casserole dish.

4. Stir together all the topping ingredients, Splenda through the water until thoroughly combined. Use a spoon to sprinkle topping over the sweet potato mixture.

5. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35 minutes. Topping will set and form a firm but crispy top. Divide into 10 servings and freeze extra for later.

Yield: 10 Servings - Each Serving is Approximately 3/4 Cup
