This is what Thanksgiving sweet potatoes should taste (and look) like. Perfectly crisp on the outside and finished with a decadent gooey pecan topping, this dish is sure to impress!

These Maple Pecan Roasted Sweet Potatoes melt in your mouth! And the textures are so perfect! No more marshmallow casseroles, this will be in the new dish highlight on your Thanksgiving or Holiday dish.

Did I mention, these are equal parts savory and sweet - crispy on the outside, soft on the inside sweet potatoes.

Use Maple Lakanto or skip the sweetener altogether and add 2 Tbsp. coconut aminos.

OR replace sweet potatoes with butternut squash.
