I LOVE sweet potatoes and grew up eating sweet potato casserole. My family always made them with marsh-mellows on top :) Well, I am not there any more so this is my sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving.
Ingredients for sweet potato:
3 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/3 cup ghee- plus 1 Tbl
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup heavy coconut milk from the can (put in the fridge before using for at least 3 hours in order to have the heavy milk harden)
1 tbs coconut oil for grease
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/4 maple syrup
1/3 up almond flour
2 cup pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 325°.
Mix the cooked mashed sweet potatoes , coconut sugar, spices, 1/3 cup ghee, eggs and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the coconut milk and mix well. Grease the casserole pan with coconut oil. Pour ingredients into the casserole dish.
For topping: Mix together 2 tablespoons of ghee, coconut sugar, almond flour and pecans. Be sure to eat this while making because it tastes too good! Top your sweet potato :)
Bake for 40 minutes and enjoy the smell!
