Ingredients

  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup refined coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Place washed sweet potatoes on baking sheet into the oven. Bake until a fork very easily slides through the flesh. Cooking time will significantly vary depending on the size and shape of your potatoes. Keep a close watch and check smaller/thinner potatoes first as these will cook faster.
  • When sweet potatoes are very soft, remove from oven. Allow to cool off enough to handle before removing potato skins.
  • Add peeled sweet potatoes to blender along with coconut oil, salt, and cinnamon. Blend until completely smooth.
  • Remove from blender and pour into serving bowl. Optional garnishes include: additional cinnamon, a drizzle of maple syrup, (avoid the following for AIP) grated nutmeg, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, or pecans.

Notes

May be made in advance. Reheats well.
