A healthy side dish or desert, this recipe is the perfect healthy, comfort food. Sweet potatoes not only pack lots of vitamin A and C, but they also have twice as much fiber as regular potatoes.
- 3 sweet potatoes
- 1 TBL date sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ginger
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1 TBL milk (or soy milk)
- 2 TBL Date Sugar
- 2 TBL Oats
- 2 TBL chopped pecans
- 2 tsp melted butter
- Cook sweet potatoes by adding them to an oven safe dish and cooking for 90 minutes at 350 degrees.
- When sweet potatoes are cooked, scoop out flesh into a bowl, and add the date sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Mix with a hand mixer until well incorporated and fluffy.
- Scoop into small pie dishes or ramekins. Mix topping ingredients in small bowl, and sprinkle on top of sweet potatoes. Bake at 350 for just about 10-15 minutes, or until pecans get toasty.
