Sweet Potato Casserole Base:

Paleo Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole Streusel:

Vegan Marshmallow and Pecan Topping:


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F, and make sure you have a large baking dish; somewhere around 9×11″
  2. In a large bowl, use a potato masher or hand mixer paddle to mash the sweet potatoes. You want the texture to be smooth.
  3. Add in the arrowroot powder, maple syrup, coconut cream, cinnamon, and vanilla, and combine it all together until it’s a thick batter.
  4. Spoon the sweet potato mixture into the baking dish and set aside after you’ve chosen your topping.

Paleo Vegan Streusel:

  1. With the sweet potato casserole off to the side, in a medium bowl, whisk together the cassava flour and cinnamon.
  2. Add in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup, and combine until it’s a wet crumble.
  3. Sprinkle the pecans over the sweet potato casserole, and then crumble the streusel topping evenly over the casserole.
  4. Place the casserole into the oven to bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the streusel are started to crisp.
  5. Remove from the oven and serve.

Vegan Marshmallow and Pecan Topping:

  1. Sprinkle the marshmallows and pecans evenly over the sweet potato casserole and place the casserole into the oven to bake.
  2. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the marshmallows have started to brown. If they aren’t browning close to that time, turn on the broiler to medium and allow the marshmallow to broil for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and serve.
