  • 1.5 cups Corn Flakes Cereal
  • 1/3 cup Pecans
  • 4 tbsp. Butter Cold, diced into small cubes
  • 4 tbsp. brown sugar divided- half for topping and half for filling
  • 1/2 tsp. salt divided- half for topping and half for filling
  • 4 large Sweet Potatoes Baked or Microwaved
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large Egg White
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. You can bake or microwave your sweet potatoes. I find that this casserole is fluffier if I bake them, but the difference is minimal. Do whatever works for you time wise.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor pour in the corn flakes, pecans, butter, 2 tbsp. of brown sugar and 1/4 tsp. of salt. Whirl it up until it forms a nice crumble texture. The butter will evenly distribute throughout.
  3. Set the crumble aside and prepare to mix the filling. You can do this in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer.
  4. Make sure the sweet potatoes are cooled. Scoop out the flesh of the sweet potatoes and then add the egg, egg white, cinnamon, brown sugar, maple syrup, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 cup of vanilla almond milk. Beat on medium high speed with a whisk attachment until fluffy.
  5. Butter a 10 inch cast iron skillet or an 8x8 baking dish. Pour the filling in, then spread the crumble topping over it. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden and everything is warmed through.
