  • 1/4 cup coconut oil room temperature
  • 1/4 cup 100% maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Pecan Topping
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil room temperature

  3. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 45 minutes until soft.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together ingredients for pecan topping. Set aside.
