For the sweet potatoes:

  • Gluten-free nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 pound sweet potatoes
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the crumble:

  • ½ cup all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup chopped pecans


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 1-inch chunks. Place in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain very well.
  • Place the cooked sweet potatoes in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Puree until smooth. Add the brown sugar, butter, cream, eggs, salt, and pepper. Process until combined. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish.
  • To make the crumble, place the flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse several times to combine. Add the butter and process until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Stir in the pecans. Top the sweet potatoes with the crumble mixture. Bake for 30 minutes or until hot and golden brown.
