Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 3 sweet potatoes (or yams which are supposed to be sweeter) - peeled & diced into cubes
  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar
  • ¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1½ tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped pecans
  • ½ - 1 tsp cinnamon
  1. Place sweet potatoes in slow cooker
  2. Mix together coconut sugar, applesauce, butter and cinnamon and pour over sweet potatoes
  3. Cover
  4. Cook on low for 6-8 hours
  5. Potatoes will be very tender when done

You can use brown sugar in place of the coconut sugar, but I like the coconut sugar because it has a lower glycemic index.
