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.
