  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (190°C).

  2. In an instant pot, place 4 sweet potatoes and pressure cook for 4 minutes. Alternatively, you can also cube the sweet potatoes and boil in a large pot of boiling water and cook until fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, mash the cooked sweet potatoes. Add butter, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix well until smooth and creamy.

  4. Transfer the sweet potato mixture to a lightly greased baking dish, spreading it evenly.

  5. In a separate bowl, combine chopped pecans, all purpose flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, softened butter, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Mix until the topping is crumbly.

  6. Sprinkle the pecan-oat topping evenly over the sweet potato mixture.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown, and the sweet potatoes are heated through.

  8. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

This vegan sweet potato casserole is a delightful and wholesome dish, perfect for holiday gatherings or any time you're craving a comforting, plant-based treat. Enjoy the rich flavors and the satisfying crunch of the pecan-oat topping!
