Peel and roughly chop sweet potatoes into large chunks. Place into a large pot and cover with water.
Bring water to a boil, reduce heat to medium-high, and gently boil for 10 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a 2 1/2-quart (10-cup) casserole dish and set aside.
Prepare the crumble topping: Pulse the oats in a food processor until coarsely chopped. In a medium
bowl, stir together the chopped pecans, oats, almond meal/Rour, cinnamon, and salt. Pour on melted
coconut oil, melted butter, and maple syrup. Stir until combined.
Once cooked and drained, place sweet potatoes into a large bowl.
Mash potatoes with the butter and coconut oil until smooth. Now, stir in the maple syrup, vanilla,
cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Adjust to taste if desired. Spoon into casserole dish and smooth out.
Sprinkle the crumble topping all over the sweet potato mixture, evenly.
Bake, uncovered, at 375°F for 16 to 23 minutes, until the dish is hot throughout. Plate and serve
immediately with a pat of vegan butter or coconut oil.
