Trust us, we’ve tried two! By the way, for all intents and purposes, sweet potatoes and yams, where we live, are the same. What we call yams are generally orange, sweet potatoes yellow….but they’re pretty much the same. A true yam is actually unrelated to the sweet potato. Of course I am no horticulturist so correct me, somebody, if I am wrong!
Delicious Sweet Potato Chews
I wish I could take credit for these delicious post-workout treats, but alas, I did not even like yams until I tried these! The original recipe can be found here. But, to summarize:
Still have a hankering for something yummy and sweet? Is candy sounding like a must have? Try this instead!
1 Large yam, sliced
1/4 Cup Mayo
1/8 Cup Honey or Real Maple syrup (read your labels)
Salt to taste
Heat the oven to 350. Cover baking pan with aluminum foil (who ever is doing the dishes can thank me later). Coat pan with coconut oil. In large boil mix mayo with honey (or maple syrup), mix in sliced yams, coat yams with mixture. Place coated yam slices in pan, salt, and place in oven. Cook for 5-10min, flip and return to oven for another 5-10min. Cook until yams are cooked through and slightly browned. Removed from oven and try to keep from licking the pan. These taste a bit like candy, consume with caution!Try this for when the crack attack is really got ya! This is not recommended for the ‘strict’ paleo, nor would I eat this every day especially if the goal is weight loss.
