Servings: 12 servings (Generous 1/2 cup per serving)
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 40 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup fat-free milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 tablespoon softened butter
1/4 teaspoon salt





Bring the potatoes and enough cold water to cover to a boil in a large saucepan.

Reduce the heat and simmer until fork-tender, about 20 minutes.

Drain and cool. Mash the potatoes in a large bowl until smooth.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 2 1/2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, syrup, egg, and vanilla in a small bowl.

Add the milk mixture to the potatoes, stirring to combine well. Stir in the raisins, coconut, and salt until blended.

Spoon the mixture into the pan.

To make the topping, combine the brown sugar, flour, pecans, butter, and salt in a medium bowl. Sprinkle the topping over the potatoes and bake, uncovered, until the center is hot and the topping is browned, 25 - 30 minutes.
