Easy & Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe?

I need a healthy and easy sweet potato casserole recipe?
I just found out, that I will be bringing a sweep potato casserole for thanksgiving dinner.

I'm only 19 and I've never cooked a Holiday meal a day in my life. I sometimes bake and I've only made pasta dishes. This year for Thanksgiving, I wanted to add a new dessert dish to our usual menu, Sweet Potato Casserole.

I need something that's easy to make, preferably an easy recipe.
