Ingredients
CASSEROLE:
  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes roasted, cooled, peeled and mashed
  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 2 large eggs beaten until foamy
  • 2 T butter (or Ghee) melted

Instructions
PREPARE SWEET POTATOES:
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. 

    Scrub potatoes and poke with fork holes. Place on foil lined (or silpat) baking sheet and bake for 1 hour.

FILLING:
  1. Once sweet potatoes are done cooking and soft to the touch, remove, cool a bit, peel and mash insides.

    Reduce oven temperature to 350F.

  2. Add palm sugar, sea salt, cinnamon, vanilla, non-dairy milk, beaten eggs and melted butter to mashed potato mixture.

    Mix until well combined and transfer to an oven-safe baking dish.

TOPPING:
  1. Combine melted butter with almond meal and coconut sugar until well mixed. 

    Evenly pour over sweet potato mixture.

  2. Place whole pecans on top of almond meal mixture in a pattern. I used an oval baking dish for the images shown here and began my pattern with an outside oval layer of pecans.

    I then connected the outside layer with a straight center line and filled in each "half" with half circles.

  3. Bake uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes until pecans are golden (but not burnt!).

    Allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes, serve and Enjoy!
