Ingredients

Sweet Potatoes

  • 5 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 1/2 tbsp maple syrup, pure
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Oat Crumble

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 3 tbsp melted butter

Instructions

Sweet Potatoes

  • Scrub the outside of your sweet potatoes, and cook them until soft. I recommend cooking in the Instant Pot. See how here.
  • Preheat your oven to 400° F. Prepare an 8x8 baking pan by spraying with cooking spray.
  • Once your sweet potatoes are cooked and slightly cooled, scoop the orange inside in a large mixing bowl. Add the maple syrup, milk, vanilla, egg, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Beat with a hand mixer until smooth and there are no lumps. Spread the sweet potato mixture into your baking pan with a spatula until evenly smooth.

Oat Crumble

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, and pecans. Use a pastry cutter, danish dough whisk or a fork to mix in the melted butter until the mixture comes together.
  • Sprinkle the topping over your sweet potatoes. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is a golden brown color and delightfully crunchy. Enjoy!
