Spread over sweet potato mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes.  Enjoy!

My Ma used to make something called sweet potato crunch every holiday.  Everybody in my family loved it!  We couldn’t wait to eat it up!

When I married into my own family, I started making sweet potato crunch every holiday.  Since my new family members were a bunch of yankees, they didn’t quite have a taste for sweet potatoes with pecans, like we did.  So, I would end up eating the whole thing myself.  I didn’t mind at all.

Then, when I went paleo, I set about to replicate Ma’s sweet potato crunch, with paleo friendly ingredients.  This recipe is the result of my efforts.  And, man did it turn out good.  In fact, I think I like this version better.
