Gluten-free sweet potato casserole is good for you, delicious and easy to make. Here’s a great version of this holiday classic.


  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 11/4 cup coconut sugar, divided
  • 3/4 cup butter, divided and softened
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/3 cup Paleo flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. Heat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Prick the sweet potatoes using a fork and slice sweet potatoes lengthwise.
  3. Place facedown on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 45 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork.
  4. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 F.
  5. Peel the sweet potatoes, place them in a large mixing bowl, and mash them with a fork or potato masher. Add 3/4 cup coconut sugar, 1/2 cup butter, and the coconut milk, eggs, vanilla and salt. Mix until well blended.
  6. Spread mixture evenly into a baking dish or cast iron skillet.
  7. In a small mixing bowl, mix 1/2 cup coconut sugar and the flour. Add 1/4 cup butter and combine the ingredients with your hands until it resembles a crumble. Stir in the pecans.
  8. Spread the crumble mixture over the sweet potatoes and bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm.


  • If coconut sugar isn’t your favorite, you can try other sugar alternatives, such as stevia or monk fruit.
  • Opt for organic, grass-fed butter and cage-free, free-range eggs.
