Sweet Potato Mash:

  • 5 medium sweet potatoes
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 3 Tbsp almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • salt to taste

Pecan & Oatmeal Topping:

  • ¾ cup pecans
  • ½ cup chopped dates
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • cup oat flour
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • salt to taste (~⅛-¼ tsp)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil


  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Use a fork to prick sweet potatoes on all sides. Add to a lined baking sheet and roast for 30-40 minutes.
  • Add bananas to the pan (with their skins on) and roast an additional 15 minutes, until sweet potatoes are tender and banana skins are black.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool to the touch.
  • Remove sweet potato skins and add to a large bowl. (You can usually peel the skins off of tender, cooked sweet potatoes with your hands!) Peel bananas and scoop insides into the same bowl.
  • Add remaining mash ingredients and beat with a hand mixer, until fluffy and whipped. Transfer to a 13x9-inch casserole dish.
  • To a large mixing bowl, add topping ingredients and toss to coat.
  • Sprinkle topping over sweet potato mash and bake for 20 minutes, until golden and crisp on top.
  • Serve and enjoy!
  • Yields 16 servings healthy sweet potato casserole.
