Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole {Without Marshmallows}

This healthy sweet potato casserole without marshmallows is just as delicious as the classic recipe, but is much lower in sugar and made with a crunchy pecan topping.


– Sweet potatoes – Maple syrup – Egg – Ground cinnamon – Ground nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and pierce each one 2 or 3 times with a fork. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until fork tender.

Lower the heat of the oven to 350 degrees F. Mist a small rectangular or 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Scoop the sweet potato flesh out of the skins and place into a large bowl.

Discard the skins. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes until smooth. Add the maple syrup, egg, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, the nutmeg, ginger, salt and vanilla.

Spread the sweet potato mash into the greased casserole dish until evenly distributed.

Mix the coconut sugar, pecans and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle the pecan mixture over the sweet potato filling.
