Clean Sweet Potato Casserole



  • 4 tbsp coconut oil, melted, plus more for oiling the baking dish (or 1/2 stick of unsalted butter)
  • 3 to 4 large sweet potatoes (about 1 3/4 pounds), peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (full fat) or any other dairy-free milks
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs


  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar, packed
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil, melted (or 1/2 stick of unsalted butter)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 2 qt. casserole dish with coconut oil.
2. For the sweet potatoes: Fill the bottom of a steamer pot with 2 inches of water.  While waiting
for the water to come to a rapid boil, slice potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes.  Steam 12-15 minutes
until potatoes are fork-tender.  Drain and cool.  Mash the sweet potatoes.
3. Whisk together the butter (or coconut oil), mashed sweet potatoes, coconut milk, coconut
sugar, vanilla, salt and eggs in a large bowl.  Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
4. For the topping: Combine the almond flour, coconut sugar, butter (or coconut oil) and salt in a
medium bowl until moist and the mixture clumps together.  Stir in the pecans.  Spread the
mixture over the top of the sweet potatoes in an even layer.  Bake until mostly set in the center
and golden on top, 25 to 30 minutes.  Serve hot.
