This time of year, the holiday season, is what I've been looking forward to the most since becoming a food blogger. People are taking the time to focus on what matters most: family, service, and food.
That means the recipes I'm creating are recipes that you share with your loved ones around a big table and eat as leftovers for days after. So they better be really good, right?
Well, today's brand new recipe is honestly my favorite recipe to date, and it probably will be one of my all-time favorites forever. This Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole is sweet, smooth, and incredibly addicting. It also happens to be gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, so no matter who is at your table this Thanksgiving, everyone can have a spoonful!
Traditional sweet potato casseroles are made with heaps of brown sugar, cream, and an entire layer of marshmallows on top. And you know what? Some people love it. But me? That's not my jam.
This recipe is not only better for you but just plain better! I've handpicked wholesome and nourishing ingredients to make sure you're getting the golden child of nutritious and delicious so you really can enjoy your food guilt-free.
Here's what you need to make this healthy casserole:
Streusel is a combination of flour, sugar, and butter that makes a delicious crumble topping for baked goods and pastries like cakes, muffins, breads, and pies. It can also be incorporated into a dish as a ribbon or layer, like in coffee cake.
Some recipes add nuts or spices into the streusel for added texture and flavor, like in these Carrot Cake Muffins or these Strawberry Crumble Bars.
In this healthy Sweet Potato Casserole, the streusel is made from oat flour, coconut sugar, stevia, cold butter, pumpkin spice, chopped pecans, and pepitas.
It's sweet, buttery, crumbly, and guilt-free! I mean, just look at the picture below and try not to drool...
If you can't tell by the blog post title, this casserole really is the best! I tested it on family and friends before publishing it and every single person raved about it. It's just the right amount of sweet, crunchy, smooth, and comforting all in one dish.
I also said it was "guilt-free" and I meant it! I chose wholesome ingredients packed with flavor and natural sweeteners over refined sugars. That means you can have your cake and eat it too, my friend. It also means more calories for the real desserts you've prepared, too!
This incredible Thanksgiving side dish is also naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, refined-sugar-free, and vegan, which means no matter who is sitting at your table, anyone can enjoy it!
