|2. Spread the Feta|

|4. Put it in the oven on the lowest rack. Bake for 15-18 minutes|

You will need everything shown here:
- Four peeled yams or sweet potatoes
- 2 teaspoons each of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Pure Vanilla
- 1/4 cup of Milk [soy, almond, coconut, or skim]
- 2 tablespoons of Honey
- Four Egg Whites
- 2 tablespoons of Butter/Margarine
- Lots O' BROWN SUGAR!!! [Bethenny's recipe doesn't call for it but it is a MUST]
|1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Boil sweet potatoes in brown sugar and/or cinnamon|
|2. Mash em' up!! [Muffin's favorite part lol]|
|3. Mix all ingredients together besides egg whites|
|4. Fold in the egg whites. [Yes my laundry is in the kitchen -_-]|
Next, TASTE it!!! You know what your level of sweetness when eating a sweet potato is so at this point I would definitely season to your taste. I used the My Fitness Pal Recipe Calculator to calculate the calories on this dish with the extra amounts of ingredients we put in while making the recipe. It just wasn't sweet enough to my liking with Bethenny's original recipe.
|5. I am all about minimal mess hence the cupcake tins, you can spray your pan w/ vegetable oil if you prefer.|
|I love the taste of crust so I added granola on top. Graham Crackers would work too!|
|18 tins in all!! 90 calories each!|
|Don't quite look like Bethenny's!!!|
If you are looking for a healthy alternative to a sweet potato casserole I would definitely suggest trying the recipe. To me, it tastes like a baked yam with butter and sugar. Souffle? Never had one so I can't speak on if it tastes like one.You are definitely going to have to tweak the ingredient amount to your liking. I would have added more sugar but I wanted to keep it under 100 calories per serving.
What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving staples? Are you planning on tweaking recipes this year to make your meal more healthy?
Have a fit-abulous day!!
