  • 1-2 Tbsp maple syrup or sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato approximately 1 med potato, steamed ahead of time

Optional Crumb Topping

  • 3 Tbsp softened butter
  • 4 Tbsp almond flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar

  • For best digestibility, place oats, milk, and yogurt in a bowl and let sit in a warm place overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F with a 10 inch cast iron skillet in the oven.
  • Stir in all remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • Grease pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Crumb Topping: Use a fork and mix ingredients together until it's a coarse crumble consistency. Sprinkle over the top before baking.


*Variations- You can also use cooked and mashed butternut squash or pumpkin in place of the sweet potato as well with very similar results. Mashed bananas or applesauce works great too.
Adding crushed pecans into the crumb topping makes it amazing!
If you use a regular 8×8 pan, the cooking time may be longer than stated above. You can also leave out any sweetener if you prefer to drizzle syrup over the top for serving.
