  • Chopped pecans
  • Rolled oats
  • Cinnamon

  • Gluten-free flour
  • Sweet potatoes (peeled and sliced 1/4″ thick)


  • Measuring cups/spoons 
  • Mixing Bowls 
  • 2 Cookie Sheets

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients until you have a rough crumble.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Peel the sweet potatoes and slice them into 1/4″ thick rounds.
  4. Place the sweet potato rounds on the prepared cookie sheets and generously top them with the crumble mixture.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Keep an eye on the pecans; if they start to brown too much, you can tent some aluminum foil on top.

​Certainly, you can drizzle a bit of honey over the top before baking if you prefer a sweeter taste.

What’s the best way to store leftovers?

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat them in the oven to maintain their delightful crispiness.

Substitutions + Alternatives

Can I use All-Purpose Flour?

Yes, All-Purpose Flour can be used. Use the same amount that is listed in the ingredients, but swap with all purpose.

Can I use regular dairy?

Feel free to make this recipe your own. I use dairy-free milk, but feel welcome to choose your preferred dairy option without any recipe adjustments. Unless specified otherwise, you have the flexibility to use the milk of your choice for the recipe.

Note: While almond milk is an option, it is less preferred due to its liquid consistency. Consider opting for a milk alternative with a thicker texture.
