Make this homemade Healthy Southern Sweet Potato Pie from scratch using whole, unrefined ingredients this holiday season! Your guests won't even know it's healthy!
In a food processor, combine the whole wheat pastry flour, sea salt and coconut sugar. (You could also combine in a large bowl and mix with your hands.)
Pulse the food processor a few times to mix.
Break the hardened coconut oil into small chunks using your hands.
Add the pieces of hardened coconut oil to the flour mixture in the food processor, pulsing just as much as necessary to break the pieces into even pea-size lumps.
Add ice cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing in between, until the dough sticks to itself when pinched. (I always need more water, but I start with just 3-4 tbsp. to be safe.)
Using a knife, carefully trim the dough around the top edge of the pie dish as needed, leaving about a 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch overlap.
In a large mixing bowl, add the mashed sweet potatoes, eggs, pure maple syrup, melted coconut oil, pure vanilla extract, whole wheat pastry flour, unsweetened almond milk, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and sea salt. Stir together until evenly mixed.
Add the coconut cream to a large mixing bowl, followed by the maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
Beat on high speed using an immersion blender, hand mixer or stand mixer, until the cream is fluffy and stiff ridges have formed.
