Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie SlcieThis is a very easy pie to make.  I’ve never been much of a pie baker because I’ve had a hard time mastering the crust. This crust is simple and just as delicious!  We like Sweet Potato Pie better than Pumpkin Pie!

Makes one 9.5″ deep dish pie

Sweet Potato Mixture

1.3 – 1.5 lbs. or about 3 medium organic sweet potatoes (I use a postage scale to weigh potatoes)

1/2 cup xylitol sweetener (or 1/4 cup xylitol + 1 teaspoon Stevita Spoonable Stevia)

1/2 cup butter

1/4 teaspoon Real Salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional – nutmeg contains Tyramine which can cause migraines)

1/3 cup milk (I use my homemade almond milk)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 eggs + yolk from crust

Boil sweet potatoes, skins on in a medium pot.  Meanwhile prepare and bake crust (recipe below).  When potatoes are soft, pour out water and let cool.  Remove skins when you can handle the potatoes.  Place into large bowl.  With an electric mixer, beat sweet potatoes and xylitol until smooth.  Add butter, a few pieces at a time beating until melted.  Beat in salt and cinnamon.  Gradually add milk and vanilla.  Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.  Spoon mixture into the pre-baked pie shell.  Bake 45 minutes at 375 F or until knife comes out clean from the center of the pie.  Place on wire rack to cool.

Gluten-Free Crust

1 cup Almond Flour

5 Tbsp. Oats (I use organic quick cooking)

6 Tbsp. butter

1/4 teaspoon Real Salt

1 Tbsp. almond milk

Add ingredients to food processor.  Mix until combined.  Press dough into ungreased 9.5″  deep dish pie plate.  Brush 1 egg white on top of the crust before baking to keep from getting soggy.  Bake crust at 375 F for 10 min.  Spoon Pie Mixture into crust and continue with above directions.

*I can’t take credit for coming up with the gluten-free crust recipe.  I wrote it down from a blog and can’t remember which blog it came from.  Forgive me, if it’s yours and let me know so I can link back to your blog.
