Honey Banana Sweet Potatoes

We do a Vegan Thanksgiving every year, so I'm always looking for yummy new recipes to try. The next 4 recipes are a few that have come my way to my table this year.

For this recipe, I only added and a bit of agave none of the sugar or honey... The bananas add a lot of sweetness, so it does not need much sugar.

Honey Banana Sweet Potatoes

from Indigo Jones

5 medium sweet potatoes

4 bananas

2 sticks butter
(for Vegan I used Earth balance)

1/4 cup honey

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup flour

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Prick the sweet potatoes with a fork and roast for 30 minutes.

Add the bananas in their peels to the pan and continue roasting for another 10-15 minutes until both are very soft.

Set aside to cool.

Scoop out the insides of the sweet potatoes, peel the bananas, and add them to a bowl with 1 stick of butter, and the honey, and mix until smooth and fluffy. Sprinkle with a little coarse salt.
Spoon into a greased, oven proof dish.

In a seperate bowl, mix the remaining stick of butter, brown sugar, flour and pecans. Rub with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Sprinkle the mixture over the sweet potatoes, and bake another 20 minutes until golden.


note: The banana peels will turn black when cooked. This will not effect the taste.
