Candied Sweet Potatoes is another family recipe that I needed to make healthier. I took away the sugar and butter that made up a heavy syrup. Instead I added agave nectar and olive oil in its place. Enjoy!

The perfect combination of sweet and savory, you'll fall in love with every bite of these yummy potatoes! We adore the slight kick of chili powder coupled with the zingy lime juice. The Test Kitchen
