How to Make Candied Sweet Potatoes for Diabetics

This recipe, like most diabetic recipes that use artificial brown sugar, has at least two grams of sugar, as the artificial brown sugar is made from real sugar. But this recipe is the lesser of two evils: regular brown sugar and artificial brown sugar. Read on to learn an easy way to make candied sweet potatoes for diabetics.



Step 1

Open a large can of sweet potatoes and drain the liquid into an oven safe casserole dish. Add the brown sugar to the liquid and stir until the sugar is mixed well.

Step 2

Add the sweet potatoes and make sure all the potatoes are covered well with the sugar mixture.

Step 3

Bake at 350 degrees until the liquid bubbles and the potatoes are hot, about 30 minutes.

Step 4

Remove it from the oven and serve it hot.

Tips and Warnings

You may wish to leave some of the liquid out because it may be too much liquid to thicken during cooking. I usually use about half of what the can contains. Do not cover with marshmallows as they contain too much sugar for diabetics.
