Maybe candied yams are not on your diet because of the sugar. Most recipes use brown sugar or molasses. I have substituted Splenda for the sugar. This reduces 129 calories and 33g carbohydrates as compared to using white sugar. When you look at the ingredients you might say "Wow!" one and a half sticks of butter. I have yet to find a replacement for the taste of butter, so the butter stays. However, I have reduced fats some by using egg substitute and fat free milk.
1/2 cup egg substitute
3 yams, peeled, cooked, mashed, cooled
1 cup Splenda
3/4 cup butter, melted, divided
1/2 cup fat free milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
