sweet potato casseroleCoconut Sweet Potato Casserole

Most sweet potato casseroles are full of sugar, vegetable oils and gluten.  This creates a massive blood sugar and inflammatory spike in the body.  If you are looking for a super tasty, sugar and grain-free sweet potato casserole than try this out.

This is one of my favorite holiday time recipes and a staple at our home for the holidays.  I follow a cyclical ketogenic diet, so I save a higher carb meal such as this for special occasions and go low-carb, keto most of the time.

Dr Jockers Comments: 

This is a great casserole recipe that tastes amazing.  Sweet potatoes are somewhat starchy so I like to add a lot of cinnamon to this recipe in order to improve blood sugar signaling.  Using coconut or almond flour adds in good fats that help stabilize your blood sugar even more when consuming this.

This meal is loaded with powerful antioxidants in the pecans and sweet potatoes.  You will love this!  If you are looking for a more detailed fat burning, keto meal plan and recipes than check our complete Navigating the Ketogenic Diet program here
