3 cups (600g) purple sweet potatoes, roasted with skin removed 1/2 cup (170g) maple syrup 2/3 cup (139g) coconut oil, melted 4 tablespoons almond or coconut milk 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 2–4 tablespoons cold water. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Wrap the sweet potatoes in foil and bake in the preheated oven until soft and tender, approximately 90 minutes.

While the potatoes are roasting, make the the crust. Place the almond flour, dates, coconut oi. To Make the Crust: Use an 8 or 9-inch fluted tart pan with a removable bottom for this tart. Preheat the oven to 350°F and oil the tart pan with olive oil. Combine the oats, almonds and chia seeds.

Scale 1x 2x 3x Ingredients For the crust: 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted; 1/4 cup maple syrup; 1 cup almond meal; 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut; 1/2 teaspoon sea salt; 1/2 teaspoon baking soda; For the pie filling: 2 lb. purple. The crust is super simple but doesn’t lack any buttery pastry flavor. The ingredients are crushed cinnamon cookies, pecans, cashew butter, maple syrup, a bit of vanilla & sea salt (good enough to eat on its own!). The vegan filling for these cheesecake bars is pretty traditional. Vegan Purple Sweet Potato Pie with Coconut Almond Crust written by admin January 20, 2019 Vegan Purple Sweet Potato Pie with Coconut Almond Crust is as tasty as it is pretty.

It is composed of purple yams that give it a purple color completely natural. So for this purple sweet potato pie, we’re making a super quick graham cracker-esque crust with F-O-U-R ingredients: coconut oil, cinnamon, a touch of brown sugar, and Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour. I loooove the way this crust turns out. It’s dense and kinda chewy, and it sets up perfectly under the filling.

To make the crust: Pulse nuts & dates together in a food processor. Add a splash or 2 of water to help it blend. Press into a 7″ (small) pie plate or tart pan. Simply add sweet potato purée to your blender jug along with coconut milk, brown sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves and ground ginger. This naturally vibrant purple sweet potato pie is both vegan and paleo, so there aren’t any funky ingredients that aren’t straight from the earth.

While the color makes this pie extra pretty, you can still make this recipe with its more well-known orange cousin that still reaps all the major nutrients. Get the recipe from The Endless Meal.

  • Oh, I”m totally in the mood for Thanksgiving now! And I of course love this because I put sweet potato in my pumpkin pie too!! Definitely makes pumpkin pie BETTER!

  • I liked this before I even saw what was happening lmao. Seriously though, that purple sweet potato is genius:D I need this in my life, my gawd.

  • Yay, you have a Youtube channel! My bf saw this pie on Instagram and basically demanded that I start making pretty pies! Brilliant work, Joscelyn!

  • Everyone’s commenting how it looks and that it looks disgusting, I don’t understand it’s just purple and it’s delicious, it’s a traditional Hawaiian dessert, and don’t say that it’s not cause I’ve lived in Hawaii my entire life, like seriously, howlies smh ����

  • I went vegan a while ago but I didn’t keep up because of depression and not knowing how to keep it up, but your channel inspired me a while ago to go back to vegan. And it was the best decision I’ve made for my health. I also feel like I have a better concept of vegan food and how to make snacks (which was the issue for me). Thanks!! You’re an inspiration! <3

  • This is such a beautiful recipe Natalie! So delicious, healthy and warming! I’m just sad I don’t have a slice in front of me right now!!

  • this is incredible! I’ve recently just found your channel, and you are already my favorite vegan youtuber! I’m literally binge watching your videos at midnight right now �� they are all so creative and they look DELICIOUS �� definitely going to try a lot of your recipes now that it’s summer, especially this one once I find a purple sweet potato! ilysm ❤️

  • I think this looks pretty good tbh. Regular sweet potatoe pie is a thing that a lot of people enjoy, why would this be any different? I love the colour.

  • OMG!!!!!!!! I made this for thanksgiving and this is the ONE!!!! It’s so awesome!!!! I’ve made several different vegan recipes in the last couple years for pumpkin pie and none have been very exciting but this one is it!! I’m so excited! Thanks so much! ��������������

  • I was wondering how you got such a vibrant first layer and the purple sweet potato was like EUREKA. LOOKS AMAZING (as always). You’re the shit =)

  • Ahh yay! I was actually gonna ask if you could do a blondies recipe. They’re one of my favorite treats, so I’m definitely gonna try this out.

  • Potatoes, beans, zucchini…really I think any veggie can go into a blondie or brownie, don’t you?! Sweet potatoes are probably my fave to use in desserts though, so these went straight to my heart strings!

  • New cheesecake recipe:
    2 small japanese sweet potatoes
    1/2 cup oats grounded
    1-1&1/2 tsp vainilla extract
    About 1 tbsp maple syrup
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    Pinch baking soda

  • So cool! I have a question though… would adding more pumpkin purée instead of the sweet potatoes work still? Would I have to add extra flour, like coconut flour to thicken it?

    Cheers Natalie:)

  • Have you run out of dates, or neither the crust nor the filling can be made with them…? I’m just curious:D and I absolutely love this way of making the tart-crust!!!!!!
    I just love every single recipe of yours!! no exception…:) ♥

  • I love how you just get down to making the recipe without any yak-yak! I don’t own a spring form pan. Could this be done in a regular pyrex pie pan? I’m going to give this a try. Looks delicious!

  • Hi Natalie!
    Could you make vegan & gluten free croissants? My mum is coeliac so she can’t have gluten and we are both vegan!

  • Hi again, I wanted to ask, might you have any recipes with coconut sugar or coconut water? If not might you consider using? thank you K

  • I made this pie last night and it is fabulous! The taste is great however the texture of the pie is a bit more on the mushy side whereas yours looked more like normal pumpkin pie. I baked for the exact recommended time (like almost 10 min extra) but anymore and the crust would have burned too much. Any advice?

  • As I’ve said before… you are a MASTER at this girl, WELL DONE! Big hugs LOVE yr channel and have passed on to loads of friends x

  • Stocking up, on purple sweet potatoes,purple cabbage,Blackberrys cranberrys and blue berrys blended together detoxify your sytem, blood health, brain and heart health as well as Anti-Ageing,… Eating more purple foods now Loven itz!!!

  • Netflix helped me go vegan����Fantastic recipe video, Friend. It’s always a pleasure connecting with a fellow vegan YouTuber on social media.

  • Oh my goodness! This looks so incredible -pumpkin and sweet potato heaven. I don’t have an oven, but it looks like I could still try to make this. Maybe if I toast the oats and cook the puree for a few minutes to evaporate some of the moisture, I can still get that ‘baked’ flavor. I reeeeeeeally love pumpkin pie too!! Thank you ������‍��.
