This is a recipe from TOH Healthy Cooking magazine. The contributer is Raquel Haggard. I love sweet potatoes and i really like that this is made in a slow cooker so it isn't tying up the oven or stovetop.

This was a hit at the company Thanksgiving pot-luck! No one had ever seen sweet potato "casserole" done in a crock pot and many asked for the recipe. Careful with the extracts, 1/2 t is the absolute max for both, and trust the crock pot to cook the sweet potatoes (don't panic and turn the temp up to high). Thanks for a wonderful pot luck dish!
