2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup cooked and mashed Louisiana sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons molasses
1/3 cup maple syrup
4 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Hearty dash salt
1. Preheat oven 300°F. Line baking sheet with foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In microwave-safe cup or dish, combine butter, sweet potatoes, molasses and maple syrup. Microwave about 3 minutes or until very bubbly.
3. In large bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Pour butter mixture over oatmeal mixture, tossing until well mixed. Transfer to prepared pan and bake 35-40 minutes, stirring mixture about half way through. Cool.
Tip: Great for breakfast, snack and to top yogurt. Jarred in mason jars makes a great homemade gift. Use leftover baked sweet potatoes or in a can.
