These little desserts are great with a scoop of vanilla or caramel soy ice cream.



Cooking spray

2 medium sweet potatoes

2 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons heart-healthy vegetable oil spread such as Benecol

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped almonds



Preheat oven to 400°F. 

Spray 4 (6-ounce) ramekins with cooking spray and set aside. 

Peel sweet potatoes and slice into bite-sized chunks. Place in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, and boil 15 minutes or until very soft. Drain in a colander, and return to pot.

Whisk in sugar, Benecol and egg. Add vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt, and whisk until smooth. 

Divide mixture among prepared ramekins, sprinkle with almonds, and bake for 20 minutes or until light and slightly puffy.
