Clean Eating Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped

Directions

  1. Wash the sweet potatoes and bake them in a 375 degree oven until tender, about 30-35 minutes. When they are finished cooking (and had a minute to cool) slice them open and scoop out the flesh into a large bowl, being careful not to rip the peel.
  2. Add maple syrup, milk, eggs, vanilla, and salt to potato flesh. With a potato masher, mash them up just until combined – you don’t want them to be too smooth.
  3. Scoop the sweet potato mixture back into the empty shell/peel. Place them onto a foil lined cookie sheet.
  4. Bake uncovered in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Top each with 1/8 cup chopped pecans. Enjoy!
