Did you grow up eating sweet potato casserole? I did not. And it’s not like my family served it and I just ate regular mashed potatoes instead (but really… mashed potatoes = LIFE); sweet potato casserole has never been served at my family’s Thanksgiving!

But I am changing that this year.

And I decided that if I was going to serve sweet potato casserole at Thanksgiving, I was going to do it my way!

So there are no marshmallows on top. Instead, I reached for my favorite ingredient – my grain free granola! This granola adds the perfect sweetness, a little burst of cinnamon, and some serious crunch!
