Healthy and Delicious Sweet Potato Casserole

Thanksgiving side dishes just hit differently. Green beans, rolls, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and one of my favorites – sweet potato casserole. There’s something about it that always makes me think of home. 

Thanksgiving is a great time of year to remember balance. We can enjoy great comfort foods and maybe a football game too while spending time with family and friends. Balance is necessary for a healthy lifestyle. 

Since life and holidays are all about balance – this recipe takes the sweet taste of home and adds a healthy twist! Sweet potatoes are such a fun and versatile food. And bonus – sweet potatoes are chock-full of nutrients. You can mash them, bake them, or fry them – and they are all so good. 



Sweet Potato Casserole



  • 3 lbs sweet potatoes (about 3 large)
  • ⅓ cup milk of choice
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar or monk fruit sweetener
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 egg
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp salt


  • 1 large apple (thinly sliced)
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp honey or agave
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (melted)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.

  7. Add sweet potato mixture evenly into the baking dish and set aside.
  8. Thinly chop the large apple and cover the sweet potato mix.
