Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

With only 96 calories per serving (a vast improvement over those glazed sweet spuds with marshmallows that can pack as many as 400 calories in a serving) these roasted sweet potatoes are still decadent.

Artificial syrup made with corn syrup or other sweeteners does not have the same benefits.
