Recipe: Grandma's Sweet Potatoes

This has to my favorite recipe for Thanksgiving. In fact, I love it so much that I make it a few times a year. When Oh! Nuts offered me the choice of a product to use in a recipe I knew pecan halves were neccessary.


3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and steamed

1/2 cup sucanat

1/2 cup orange juice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

1/4-1/2 teaspoon pepper (I prefer more pepper and a sweet-spicy taste.)

pecan halves

1/4 cup sucanat

4 tablespoons coconut oil

1. Mash sweet potatoes, sucanat, orange juice, and spices. 

2. Spread into casserole dish and top with pecans.

3. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of sucanat and dot with coconut oil.

4. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes until sucanat melts and carmelizes.

5. Serve and enjoy!

FTC disclosure: I received the pecans from Oh! Nuts to use in a recipe.
