Sweet Potato & Apple Bake

Tested a recipe yesterday that I will be making again for Thanksgiving. It was super yummy. Would be great for a side with pork, ham, chicken as well as with turkey on the big day.

I ate leftovers for breakfast with a dollop of SF Torani sweetened Fage Greek Yogurt. Also great as dessert with a squirt of Sugar Free Land o Lakes Whipped Cream or scoop of Protein Ice Cream.


Shelly's Sweet Potato & Apple Bake

2 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and sliced
3 Apples, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup Pecans, chopped
1 Tablespoon Butter
1/2 teaspoon Apple Pie Spice
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/3 cup Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used a combo of SF Vanilla & SF Caramel - both on sale now)
1/2 cup Sugar Free Maple Syrup, divided use
1 Tablespoon Bird's Custard Powder
1/2 cup Shelly's Nutty Crumble Topping

Boil sliced sweet potatoes for 7 minutes till fork tender. Drain and pour in a pan. Add apples, butter, nuts and spices and cook till butter is melted.


Add Torani and 1/4 cup of maple syrup to custard powder slowly and mix to form a slurry. Pour over potatoes & apples. Toss to combine. Pour into a Pyrex Casserole Dish. Top with Nutty Crumble Topping and drizzle with 1/4 cup of the maple syrup. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes (first 30 minutes covered with foil.)

We have family coming down this weekend that we won't be able to see for Thanksgiving, and I think this is just the dish to go with the pulled pork that is being made by the parentals! Thanks!

This is a great variety of flavor. I make one similar and we love it with chicken and turkey.

So I found your site via Thinner Times and I must say, I'M SAVED!

I'm 21 and had RNY on the 27th of October. Pre-op, my favorite food was pizza, and I've been pretty depressed thinking about how I can't ever have it again, but OH WAIT! You have saved me! I can't wait until I move to solids to give some of your pizzas a try.

I really appreciate all the delicious recipes you've taken the time to post as well. I've really enjoyed the last 2 days I've taken to read through a year and a half of your blog.

I want to make this for Turkey Day, but I am not able to get a hold of any Bird's Custard Powder, in time. Do you recommend a replacement or can you just leave it out?

A good sub would be a Tablespoon of Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding Mix Powder.

:) Happy Thanksgiving!
