Worried about gaining weight this holiday season? These sweet potato casserole muffins are just the thing. Only 4 Points Plus on WW vs the 15 PP from the traditional recipe.

Our families sweet potato casserole recipe is to die for.  No really…it’s that good.  As a kid, I hated sweet potatoes, but I could always eat this recipe because it tasted like candy.  

It really should be a dessert, not a side dish.  The topping is crisp and crunchy, while the innards are smooth and oh so creamy.  

Once I got old enough to make this recipe on my own, I saw how bad it was for you.  The innards contain 2 sticks of butter.  2 sticks!  The topping includes a whole stick of butter by itself.

Since joining Weight Watchers, I decided to test lightening up this recipe.  I knew I could do it fairly easily, but I had to know how it tasted.  

And you know what?  While it’s not the original recipe, it tastes pretty close to the original while not tasting like diet food.
