Honey Spiced Sweet Potatoes

I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan of those candied yams/sweet potatoes commonly found on holiday dinner tables. All the sticky, gooey, sweet stuff is just too much for me. Whose idea was it to put marshmallows on sweet potatoes anyway? Way to ruin a perfectly good dish. :p


With the holidays just around the corner, and sweet potatoes in my pantry, I thought it was high time I came up with a redeeming healthy substitute. And I think these do the job.  ; )


The perfect amount of sweet, and a touch of wonderful holiday spice, without the gooey sugary-ness. I could eat these all year round.
