I love sweet potatoes and these were heavenly. I prefer the sweet potato to pumpkin in this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

So good there is no photo as they were finished off pre photo. Made the diabetic version and had to increase bake time to 25 minutes. Will increase the Splenda brown to a 1/4 cup next time. These warm tasty treats are good plain, even better with a little butter and as Annacia said pair oh so well with coffee. Thanks so much for the post.

These were yummy! I am not normally a fan of sweet potato, but DH is, so I tagged these in Photo Tag. The sweet potato flavor here is subtle, and I thought these were just wonderful with butter and brown sugar. Thanks for posting Annacia! We will make again!
