Paleo Sweet Potato Casserole


It’s time to start thinking about your Thanksgiving menu or your specialty potluck dish you will be bringing to Aunt Suzy’s house for an afternoon of great food, conversation, perusing the Black Friday deals, and college football.  With so many dishes to prepare, a good host also takes into consideration dietary restrictions of his or her guests.

Taking familiar holiday favorites and adapting them isn’t as hard as some might believe it to be.  In fact, sometimes making changes to certain recipes can yield better versions of the traditional ones you’ve grown accustomed to eating every year.


Today I have a recipe for Sweet Potato Casserole that happens to be dairy-free, gluten-free, and qualifies as a Paleo friendly dish.  Although I do not eat a Paleo type diet, several friends of mine do and will be joining us for Thanksgiving.  What better way than to show how thankful I am for wonderful friends like them than to share in the foods everyone can eat and enjoy?

If you’re looking for the more traditional sweet potato casserole with roasted marshmallows, this is not the recipe for you.  However, if you appreciate a memorable and not too sweet sweet potato dish which includes a maple syrup, dates, and pecan topping, then this is the only sweet potato dish you’ll need for Thanksgiving. Enjoy!
