This dish is slightly sweet, but not the overpowering sweetness of glazed sweet potatoes or dishes with marshmallows in them. The maple syrup just enhances the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes. It’s a great addition to your Thanksgiving table.
6 medium sweet potatoes
1/4 cup melted coconut oil (or butter)
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp arrowroot powder
Bake sweet potatoes at 350 until soft, about an hour. Let cool, peel and cut in half lengthwise, and then cut into chunks. Peel, core, and slice apples. Combine coconut oil, syrup, lemon juice, and arrowroot. Lay half the sweet potatoes into a greased casserole dish, then top with half the apples. Drizzle half of the oil/syrup mixture over top, and then repeat with a layer of sweet potatoes, a layer of apples, and the remaining oil/syrup mixture. Bake, covered, at 350 for one hour.
