This weekend we were invited to a paleo brunch. It was a great time hanging out with the crossfitters and enjoying some food. I’ve said it before but they are a great bunch of people! I love hanging out with them. This was my contribution to the meal. t and I bought some sweet potato tots from the store thinking they might be healthy. We didn’t look at the ingredients. They were a sugar and flour bomb! So we came up with this as paleo alternative to those delicious but bad for you treats.
Sweet Potato Bake
2 large sweet potatoes
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp coriander
1/2 cup of honey
1.5 cups of walnuts
1.25 cups of coconut
Shred and parboil the sweet potatoes. Keep an eye on this step. You are looking for them to just start to get soft. I over cooked mine and they didn’t keep their shredded shape and ended up more like a mash. The taste was still good just not the consistency I was looking for.
Mix 4 eggs with all the seasoning and the honey. When the shredded sweet potato is cool enough to touch add it to the eggs.
In a food processor grind the walnuts and coconut into a fine crumb.
Oil a deeper cookie sheet with the fat of your choice. I used bacon fat. Spread the sweet potatoes in. Sprinkle the crumbs on top. Bake this uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes. Cut and serve immediately so you can eat it with your fabulous friends at brunch.
