  1. Lena, this sounds amazing and exactly what I was looking for as I wanted to pair sweet potatoes with apples. However, I try to limit the added sweeteners, including honey in our food and 1/3 cup in both the potatoes seems like a lot. Have you tried using less or using maple syrup, but again, not as much? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Lena: Since each person’s form of diabetes and diabetes diet can be a bit different, you might want to chat with your healthcare team and/or registered dietician to make sure. 🙂

  2. Curious what is the use for the sliced apples on top? Texture or pairs nicely with the sweet potato? That doesn’t sound appealing to me

    1. Hi Keri: The apples add even more deliciousness to the recipe. If you want, you can always omit them, and it should turn out fine. Enjoy!

  3. This was super delicious! My family and I made this for Thanksgiving instead of our regular candied yams. A huge hit!! Thank you for sharing this!

  4. I just made a batch and I have to say its quite delicious, however next time I may add a little more cinnamon for my taste.

    1. You can find it pretty much anywhere, but if you’re having a hard time, check Trader Joe’s. Enjoy!

  5. There is no applesauce in the list of ingredients, it is just in the directions… how much applesauce do you add?

  6. In the directions it says applesauce but I don’t see that in the list of ingredients so how much needs to be added or is that a typo?

  7. It says in the directions to mix in applesauce but it’s not listed in the ingredients. How much applesauce do you add?
