Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes

This is one of my Thanksgiving staples!

2 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes (cooked, peeled and cut into large chunks)

1/4 c sugar free maple syrup

2-4 packets of splenda (helps to thicken the syrup)

1-2 Tbls of chopped pecans

(mini marshmallows…optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

Spray a 8×8 dish with non stick Pam (preferrably butter “flavor”).  Add Potatoes. Mix the syrup and splenda and pour over potatoes.  Sprinkle with nuts and bake uncovered for 30 min.

If adding marshmallows (I always do on a some for my kids) add during the last 5 minutes of baking.
