Maple bacon sweet potato bites

September 25, 2016

Sweet potatoes kinda fall under the same category as pumpkin use to for me, wasn’t really a fan until I actually started baking with it in the kitchen and to my surprise I enjoyed it.. So I wanted to find ways to get me enjoying sweet potato…and I mean HELLO bacon 😉 You put bacon around anything and I am bound to try it.. These maple bacon sweet potato bites were delicious! They are a great snack while watching the big game, or a perfect side dish, at just 1 smart point each you can have a few!


Maple bacon sweet potato bites
Recipe type: Appetizer
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 30
1SP each
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 3 Tbsp sugar free syrup (see picture for what I used)
  • ½ Tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Low point bacon (I use Oscar Mayer center cut)
  1. Preheat oven to 375F, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Peel and cut your sweet potato, I used 1 large one, cut into 1 inch cubes, I got about 30 pieces from my one potato.
  3. In a bowl mix your cut potato pieces with your syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Cut your bacon pieces in half and wrap a piece around each potato, use a toothpick to seal and place on your baking sheet.
  5. Bake in oven for approx 35-40 minutes or until bacon is cooked, turn over at the 20-25 minutes mark.
  6. Serve warm, each piece is 1 smart points. *Optional to serve with some syrup for dipping
  7. * Please note, I did not figure nutritional info out for these, when it's something with just a few ingredients I use simple math in my head to determine points.

      Hi Kim, I don’t know for sure as I don’t do the math for PP anymore but my guess from previous experience with recipes and PP would be 2 for 1PP
