Sweet potato casseroles are a staple on most Thanksgiving tables. However, most recipes call for lots of added sugar and eggs. We took a crack at making a better-for-you Paleo and Vegan version of our favorite side dish for everyone to enjoy!
3 lbs peeled and diced sweet potato
1 cup almond milk
¼ flax meal
½ cup Sweet Potato Pie Nut Butter
¼ cup maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped Original Nut & Seed or Banana Maple (vegan) Granola
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Bring 6 cups of water to a boil and boil the potatoes for 10 minutes or until they are soft.
Drain potatoes and place into a mixing bowl.
Add the almond milk, flax meal, nut butter, cinnamon and maple syrup to the mixing bowl.
Turn the mixer on low for a few seconds and gradually increase the speed. Mix until smooth.
Grease a baking pan and spread the potato mixture into the pan. Top with the granola and cover with tinfoil.
Bake for 60 minutes.
Let cool and enjoy!
