  • 1 1/2 tbsp cold-pressed, unrefined, virgin coconut oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp madagascar bourbon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp organic ground ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp organic ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Crumb Topping

  • 1 c old-fashioned oats
  • 1 1/3 c pecans, chopped
  • 1/3 c almond flour
  • 1 tsp organic ground ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp cold-pressed, unrefined, virgin coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter (melted)

Sweet Potatoes

  1. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes and slice into large chunks. 

  2. Place in a large pot of boiling water and boil until fork-tender (approximately 10-20 minutes). Drain.

  3. Mash the sweet potatoes with the butter and coconut oil. Slowly add the pure maple syrup, madagascar vanilla, ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt. Pour mixture into the casserole dish and smooth with a spatula until even. 

Crumb Topping

  1. Place the oats in a food processor and pulse until they are coarsely chopped.

  2. Combine the chopped pecans, oats, almond flour, ceylon cinnamon and sea salt in a medium sized bowl.  

  3. Fold the melted coconut oil, pure maple syrup and melted butter into the mixture and stir until just combined. 

  4. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the mashed sweet potato mixture and bake, uncovered for 15-20 minutes.

  5. Serve warm with a drizzle of pure maple syrup and a tall, cold glass of plant-based milk and enjoy!
