We all know sweet potatoes basically HAVE to be served at Thanksgiving. It’s sort of like an unspoken rule. However, they totally don’t have to be just boring mashed or baked. Twice baking potatoes give them the perfect combo of crispy outside and soft, smooth inside.

And then there is the almond butter, let’s talk about that. Adding almond butter to sweet potatoes is fabulous for so many reasons like:

  • Adds healthy fats
  • Amps up the protein
  • Creates an out-of-this world flavor combo

Honestly, guys, almond butter and sweet potatoes are a SERIOUS power couple.

I can be pretty picky when it comes to almond butter. I don’t like them to be too runny and I don’t like them too firm. I sort of feel like the Goldie Locks of almond butter, I take it that seriously. I used my latest obsession Crazy Richard‘s almond butter for this recipe. Not only is their almond butter addictive beyond belief (I’ve eaten two jars…) but they’re a family run company who focuses on high-quality, all-natural ingredients. They keep their products pure and avoid ingredient clutter by never adding any salt, sugar, or oils. It’s safe to say I’m pretty much in love.
