FILLING:

  • 2 sweet potatoes, about 1.5 lbs
  • 6 ounces full fat RAW milk or cream

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit

Wash your sweet potatoes whole and then pat dry. Poke a few holes in the skin with a fork.

Place potatoes on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet and bake for 45-60 minutes or until they are fork tender, remove them from the oven and let them cool.

While they are cooling, make the crust. Place all crust ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Once mixed you want to add in the ice water 1 tablespoon at a time and continue to mix until you get a nice dough that doesn’t stick to your hands, press crust into a pre-greased (with coconut oil), parchment paper lined 9 inch pan.

Remove the sweet potato skins and mash potatoes in a bowl, add milk or cream, banana, egg yolks, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, and salt and using a hand mixer mix well get a nice and smooth filling, spoon mixture into your pie crust spreading evenly.

Top with toasted chopped pecans and drizzle the 1 Tbsp of maple syrup over the top.

Bake in 350 preheated oven on a cookie sheet for 45-55 minutes or until the internal temperature of the filling is 160-180 degrees.
