Sweet Potato Casserole (Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free, Gluten Free)

Sweet potato casserole (a.k.a. the best thing in the entire universe) is possibly my favorite thing to eat. Loaded with tons of sugar, gluten, fat and cinnamon spice goodness, it's like Christmas in a casserole dish. Only problem is, I can't eat any of those things anymore. What on earth will I do? Oh yeah, just figure out a recipe that tastes equally as delicious so I don't have to suffer in a world without it.

Sweet Potato Casserole (Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free, Gluten Free)

  • 4 Cups sweet potatoes, cubed (5 small/medium sweet potatoes)
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 1/2 packet stevia
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 Tbs coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice 
  • scant 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 
Bring a medium size saucepan of water to a boil on medium high heat. Add cubed sweet potatoes & boil until tender. Drain off water and mash. Add all of the other ingredients and mix completely. Pour into an 8x8 casserole dish and spoon topping on (recipe follows). Bake at 325 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until top is nice and golden & casserole has set. 

  • 1-2 Tbs honey
  • 1 packet stevia
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

Combine all ingredients. It will be thick like a paste. Spoon it on top of casserole and bake as directed above.
