Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Apple Casserole

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 46)

I have a new favorite slow cooker sweet potato recipe.

Prior to discovering it in Fix-It and Forget-It New Cookbook: 250 New Delicious Slow Cooker Recipes! and testing it out, my favorite crock pot sweet potato dish had been this Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Applesauce recipe from Betty Crocker.

It had become my go-to way to prepare sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving.

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away?

I’ve gotta get a move on if I’m going to cook and post all the great slow cooker Thanksgiving recipes I wanted to try!

The recipe instructions said to cook this slow cooker sweet potato apple casserole directly in a 2 to 3-Quart crock pot. But, I decided to put it in a 1-1/2-quart casserole dish that I placed inside my 6-Quart cooker instead.

I cut back just a little on the butter, coconut and brown sugar since we don’t like our sweet potatoes too sweet.

Both Rod and I loved the combination of textures and flavors.

It’s definitely a recipe I plan to make again.

Enjoy!

      Hi Deborah,

      According to my calculations 1/4 cup has 210 calories so if you divide 210 calories by 8 servings that equates to 26 calories a serving from the nuts. If you eliminate them, subtract 1 WW Points+. Hope this helps!!
