Description

This easy gluten free and vegan sweet potato casserole with coconut streusel topping is delicious! It’s the perfect side dish to bring to your next family gathering!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 large sweet potatoes (about 4 cups once cooked and mashed)
  • 1/2 cup dairy free milk (I use “So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk”)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/3 cup vegan butter, melted (I use “Earth Balance Soy Free Vegan Buttery Sticks”)

Coconut Streusel Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup gluten free all purpose flour (I use “Better Batter”) 
  • 1/3 cup vegan butter, melted (I use “Earth Balance Soy Free Vegan Buttery Sticks”)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 
  2. Peel and chop sweet potatoes into cubes. In a large pot, boil the sweet potatoes over medium-high heat for 15 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft.
  3. While the potatoes cook, combine all of the topping ingredients in a medium sized bowl. The topping should be crumbly. Set aside.
  4. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain them and mash them.
  5. Add all ingredients (except for the topping ingredients) to a large mixing bowl or stand mixer and beat until smooth.  
  6. Pour sweet potato mixture into a greased casserole dish* and spread evenly in the dish.
  7. Crumble the topping mixture evenly over the sweet potatoes. 
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes.  

Notes

You can use pretty much any size casserole dish for this recipe up to a 9×13 casserole dish.

To make this recipe ahead of time, prepare the filling and topping ingredients 1-2 days before you are going to bake and serve it.  Pour sweet potato mixture into a greased 9×13 casserole dish and spread evenly in the dish.  Cover and store the sweet poataoes in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake.  Store the topping ingredients in a storage bag in the refrigerator and crumble over the sweet potatoes before baking.
