Sweet Potato Casserole with Streusel Topping

Warm, rich sweet potato filling topped with sweet, buttery streusel topping. Made with only real food ingredients!

I’ve got one last perfect Thanksgiving recipe for you! I know it’s pretty close to the holiday, but if you’re anything like me you’re still browsing the internet for delicious ideas. With this recipe I wanted to capture all the delicious flavors of a sweet potato casserole but without so many unhealthy ingredients. I ended up with a casserole that I would gladly eat instead of the marshmallow-covered one any day!

Serves: 10
Ingredients
Filling
  • 6 roasted and peeled sweet potatoes
  • ½ c. milk (nondairy or dairy, either works)
  • ¼ c. pure maple syrup
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • ½ t. nutmeg
  • ½ t. salt
Topping
  • 1½ c. oats
  • ¼ c. flour
  • ¼ c. brown sugar
  • ½ c. pecans or walnuts
  • 4 T. vegan butter substitute (that's what I prefer but you can use butter)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer with the whisk attachment on, beat together all the filling ingredients until very smooth and well incorporated. You probably need to scrape down the bowl a few times to get the potatoes totally mashed.
  3. In the bowl of a food processor (or with a pastry cutter, chop the nuts and add them at the end if using a pastry cutter), combine the topping ingredients until large crumbs begin to form.
  4. Spread the sweet potato filling evenly into a casserole dish (I used a 3 quart pyrex). Sprinkle the topping over the filling evenly.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the topping turns golden brown.

I shared this with my little sister Ashley this afternoon and she kept stealing pieces of my streusel topping. It’s that yummy! I also took a pan of it to a Tone It Up Friendsgiving yesterday and the girls really liked it too! In other words its been tested and approved, so put it on your menu!

    This looks delicious, though I have to admit that I really like the marshmallow covered sweet potato casseroles too.
