Ingredients

  • 3-4 medium{ish} sized apples or 2 large apples, sliced
  • 1 Medium Sweet Potato, Peeled and Diced
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Fat of Choice {I like butter here}
  • 1 tsp. Raw Honey, melted
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Eggs, slightly beaten {optional}

Instructions

  1. Get your oven rocking and rolling at 350 {F}
  2. Fill a medium sized pot up with water, and then peel and chop your sweet potato. Add it into the water, set it on the stove and allow to boil {you’re going to mash it up in the end!}. I personally like to start with the lid on, and the remove it once things are boiling and possibly turn down the stove a little. But it’s totally up to you!
  3. While those are cooking away, add your favorite fat to a large skillet {I used butter here — but I’ve also tried it with Bacon Fat and holy coffee — it was good!} and get it heating. Then start to peel your apples and chop your apples into slices. Add them into the pan and give it a good stir!
  4. — Note on my method. I like to peel two or three apples to start, cut them into quarters and then use a pairing knife {or any sharp small knife} to remove the core and then I chop the slices right into the pan. Then I proceed to peel the last two apples and do the same thing. That way some apples are soft and some have a bit more texture in the pie, allowing for some really awesome flavor and texture!
  5. When your apples are almost cooked through, add in your Cinnamon, Pinch of Salt, Vanilla Extract, Spritz of Lemon Juice and I also like to add another tablespoon or so of your favorite fat {there’s never a thing as too much butter 😉 }. Mix it all together well and let your apples finish cooking.
  6. When your sweet potato is fork tender, drain it and add in your fat of choice {as much or as little as you want}, Raw Honey, Cinnamon, Vanilla Extract and mash/ mix it well.
  7. By now your apples should be done and wicked yummy. Add them into your pie pan and spread them out into an even layer.
  8. Then add in your slightly beaten egg to your sweet potato, give it a quick mix about and spread it ontop of the apples.
  9. Place in the oven to bake for 15-25 minutes or until the top has set a little and has a pretty golden color.
  10. Try to let it cool before diving in! It does slice/serve better when you let it cool down a lot. But as you can see from the pictures, I have no patience for that hahah 🙂

Notes

-I’ve also made this by mixing the apple and the sweet potato together and then adding it into the pie pan and baking. This gives you more of just a apple pie filling feel, but equally as yummy and is a great way to vary it up a little!
