1.5 pound Sweet Potatoes, Fresh, Peeled, Quartered

3/4 gallon Water, Boiling

2 each Banana, Medium, Fresh

1 tbsp Honey

.75 tsp Cinnamon, Ground

1/4 tsp Ginger, Ground

In a mixer combine the cooked sweet potatoes, roasted banana, honey, spices and coconut milk. Blend on low speed until well incorporated and slightly fluffy.

Transfer the mixture to a large casserole dish.

Sprinkle the granola on the top of the casserole and bake in a 350 F oven for 10-15 minutes until an internal temperature of 145 has been reached, remove from the oven and serve immeadiately.
