Ingredients

For the filling:

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, washed
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Nellie's Free Range Egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the topping:

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup whole rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoons pecans or walnuts, if desired

Directions

To make the filling:

  • Cook sweet potatoes either in the oven or microwave. To roast in the oven, preheat to 450F. Bake for 1 hour, or until soft and easily pierced with a fork. To cook in the microwave, prick outside of sweet potatoes with a fork, then microwave on high for 10 minutes or until soft.
  • Preheat oven to 400F (or lower the temperature if oven was already preheated for sweet potatoes) and set out an 8 x 8 inch baking dish.
  • Carefully peel cooked sweet potatoes and place flesh in a stand mixer. Beat on medium-high speed until sweet potatoes start to get fluffy. Add in beaten egg, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Continue to beat until well combined. Pour mixture into baking pan.

To make the topping:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix in pecans or walnuts, if using. Sprinkle topping over sweet potato mixture.
  • Place pan in preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

Note:

This casserole can be prepped a day ahead of time and baked just before eating. Store leftovers in fridge for up to 5 days.
