Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 small to medium sized sweet potatoes (skins scrubbed clean)
  • 23 tsp vegan butter
  • 23 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  • 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 3 medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Set oven to 400F. Poke holes into each sweet potato and place on a baking tray to bake for about 40-45 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft to touch.
  2. In a food processor, combine crumble ingredients and process until a crumbly and sticky mixture forms.
  3. Remove potatoes from oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes, then take each sweet potato and cut in half, making sure the cut side is facing up.
  4. Add a little vegan butter, cinnamon, brown sugar and salt to each sweet potato half and with a fork slightly mash the sweet butter mixture into the soft center of the sweet potato.
  5. Top each half with as much crumble as you’d like and place in the oven to bake for another 5-10 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and add additional toppings as desired then serve and enjoy.
