Low fat Sweet Potatoes--yummy

We really enjoyed these-- This was wonderful!! Nice flavor.

2 Sweet Potatoes
Pineapple tidbits with juice (unsweetened)
maple syrup (I use pure Maple syrup)
Few pieces of pecans

For two sweet potatoes:

Prick them and microwave them until soft. I had medium sized ones and did 4 minutes and then turned them and did another 4 minutes.

Place the potatoes for ten minutes in a 375 degree oven to crisp up the skins. Remove from oven.

Make a slit and remove most of the flesh and mash with some of the pineapple juice. Add about a 1/3 cup of tidbits. Mix well with a drizzle of maple syrup and some liberal shakes of cinnamon. Add a bit of salt.

Stuff the potato skins with the mashed potato mixture. Add a little drizzle of maple syrup on top and a few more pineapple tidbits. Place a few pieces of pecans on top. Broil for about 2 minutes under the broiler.

These were great and no butter!! Ps. They are also great without the maple syrup
