Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Apple Casserole
I have a new favorite slow cooker sweet potato recipe.
This slow cooker sweet potato apple casserole.
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 Skinny on Sweet Potato Apple Casserole
The recipe instructions said to cook this slow cooker 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.
According to my calculations, each serving has 237 calories, *6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *7 WW Freestyle SmartPoints. Enjoy!
