  • Summary

    The sugary pecans and buttery sweet potatoes are such a divine combination. This is my Grandma's recipe that I've tweaked a bit to use only whole, organic ingredients. If you haven't found a sweet potato casserole recipe for Thanksgiving yet, this one is super simple to prepare and makes great leftovers.

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
    • 1/2 cup organic whole cane sugar or sucanat
    • 2 large eggs, beaten
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/2 cup whole milk (you can substitute with coconut milk)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 1/2 cup whole cane sugar or sucanat
    • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
    • 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour *(for a grain free option substitute 1/4 cup almond flour and 2 teaspoons coconut flour)
    • 1 cup pecans chopped
