  • 4 large sweet potatoes (or yams)
  • 2 egg whites, separated
  • 3/4 cup skim or almond milk
  • 1/2 cup blue agave sweetner
  • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup light brown pure cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup raw oats
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 TBSP raw unsalted butter
  1. Wrap the sweet potatoes in aluminum foil at 350°F until tender (approx. 45-60 minutes). Scoop out the inside into a food processor (or blender).
  2. Add the wet-mix ingredients (egg whites, milk, blue agave sweetener, vanilla extract, sea salt) into the food processor with the potatoes and pulse to make the mixture chunky.
  3. Spread the mixture evenly onto a baking dish.
  4. Then, in the food processor, add the dry-mix ingredients (light brown pure cane sugar, organic coconut sugar, pecans, raw oats, chia seeds, wheat germ, cinnamon, raw unsalted butter) and pulse until evenly mixed.
  5. Sprinkle the dry mix over the adulterated sweet potatoes that have been spread onto the baking dish. Bake at 350°F for an additional 30 minutes.
Let stand covered for 10 minutes, then serve very warm. (Refrigerate for up to three days or freeze for up to three weeks.) Just like our active-lifestyle apparel line, healthy food is always a HOT fashion! I really hope this dish from my kitchen makes it way to your supper or training table… for your team, family and friends… and of course for YOU! ♥, Sara Marie and the Shefit™ kitchen team
