For the filling I used fresh sweet potatoes, one of nature's best sources of vitamin A.

For the topping I used the Nature Valley Simple Nut ALMOND, CASHEW & SEA SALT Bar made from roasted almonds, roasted cashews, honey, tapioca syrup and roasted sunflower seeds. They taste like they are wrapped in chewy caramel. I knew they would be perfect for my pie topping and they were incredible!

10 Minute Microwave Sweet Potato Pies

Makes 4 mini pies

Ingredients:
2 large (apx 1.5 lbs) sweet potatoes, cooked
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 local honey
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon gluten free cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon gluten free 5 spice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon coconut flour
3 Nature Valley Simple Nut Bars, finely chopped
Instructions:
  1. Wash and pierce the sweet potatoes several times. Place potatoes on a paper towel and microwave for 15-18 minutes or until soft.
  2. Set potatoes aside to cool a bit. When potatoes are cool enough to touch, peel off skins and scrape the meat into your food processor or mixer.
  3. Add the butter and honey and mix, add the coconut milk and mix, add the eggs, cinnamon, spices, vanilla and coconut flour and mix until smooth. Your filling should be the texture of thick pudding.
  4. Spoon into microwave safe ramekins, filling them 3/4 of the way full. Mine held almost a cup each. Sprinkle the top of each pie with chopped Nature Valley Simple Nut Bars.
  5. Place ramekins on the floor or rotating plate of your microwave and cover with parchment paper or wax paper.
  6. Cook on high for 9-10 minutes or until they have risen to the top, pull away from the sides and are firm but a little sticky to the touch.  Adjust cooking time depending on the size of your ramekins. My first sample was only 1/2 cup and I microwaved it alone. It only took one minute.
  7. Remove pies from microwave and let sit to finish setting. Can be eaten warm or cold!
  8. Serve with whipped cream.
