  • Preheat the oven to 375F
  • Peel and chop about 3 large sweet potatoes (8 cups chopped)
  • Add the chopped sweet potatoes to a large pot and cover the potatoes with water. 
  • Cover the pot and cook over medium-high heat for 15 minutes. 
  • While the sweet potatoes are boiling, make the topping by combining the sunflower seeds, coconut sugar, coconut flour, coconut oil and ground cinnamon. Stir well.  
  • After the potatoes boil for 15 minutes, they should be fork tender. You can drain the potatoes in a colander.  
  • Add the potatoes back to the pot and mash with a potato masher. 
  • Add the egg whites, ground cinnamon, maple syrup, salt and vanilla extract. Stir well 
  • Spray a casserole dish with non-stick and add the sweet potato mixture. Top with the topping and bake in the oven at 375F for 13-15 minutes
