  • ½ cup coconut palm sugar
  • 7-10 drops liquid stevia (or to taste)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. arrowroot powder

Instructions
  1. 1) Peel potatoes, cut into 1-2" chunks and boil until tender, about 25 min. Alternately, prick sweet potatoes with a fork and bake in oven at 350°F until tender. Cool, remove skins and continue.
  2. 2) Transfer to a food processor or electric mixer and beat/process until smooth.

  4. 4) Divide between two 8 " souffle or two 1.5 quart casserole dishes (do NOT butter the dish)

  6. 6) Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until center looks set and doesn't wiggle very much.
Notes
*Please keep in mind that the size of sweet potatoes used will affect how the souffle sets because the egg and milk to sweet potato ratio will be a bit different with each potato. Thus, sometimes when it's done a clean knife will indicate that the souffle is done. Another time you can cook it for and hour and a half and it will be done but a clean knife will never happen. If it's been in the oven for an hour then the eggs are definitely cooked and that's all that really matters!
Also, if your souffle doesn't puff up, just call it a casserole and eat it anyway. It's hard to go wrong with this recipe!
