Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole // If you love mashed sweet potatoes, you will die over how divine these smooth and creamy potatoes are with a surprisingly healthy crunchy topping made with wholesome ingredients and refined sugar-free! | Tried and TastyI couldn’t have picked a tastier side dish to have at my dinner party recently.  We love sweet potatoes and a couple of our favorite dishes include my Honey Glazed Apple & Sweet Potato Casserole and Honey-Sweetened Apple & Sweet Potato Mash. This is a little bit of a twist on our favorites. The oat topping is phenomenal. Healthier than your typical sweet potatoes you’ll find around the holidays – but you’d never know.

For the side dish I used the IKEA Senior Casserole with Lid and IKEA Sedlig Serving Set. This side dish is perfect not just for holidays but for Sunday dinners or family get togethers. It’s the perfect amount of sweetness and pairs well with just about anything.

Ingredients

For the sweet potatoes

  • 3 lbs. sweet potatoes peeled and cut into approx. 1" chunks
  • 3 medium apples peeled and cut into approx. 1" chunks
  • 2 tbsp. vanilla bean paste
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

For the pecan oat topping

  • 1 1/3 c. old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 c. roughly chopped pecans
  • 1/2 c. almond meal
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 5 tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, boil peeled sweet potatoes. Cook until potatoes are fork-tender, about 10 minutes. Add apples, vanilla bean paste, and cinnamon. Return to stove top and heat 5 minutes until apples are warmed through; stirring to prevent potatoes from sticking. Remove from heat and add honey. Using a hand mixer or immersion blender, mash apples and potatoes until smooth. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish or other 3 quart casserole dish and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the topping ingredients: oats, pecans, almond meal, cinnamon, salt, coconut oil, and maple syrup until moist and evenly mixed. Sprinkle over the sweet potatoes. Bake until the topping is toasted and fragrant and casserole is warmed through, about 20 minutes. Serve warm.

    I forgot to say. I love the combination of apples and sweet potatoes and love that sort of oat streusel topping on either of them. On that combination of both, it has to be amazing.

    I have never seen vanilla bean paste in my local stores. Where can I find it? If it’s not available in my area, Can I substitute regular vanilla extract? If so, how much should I use?
