Garnet Yam Crisp with Dried Cherries and Coconut- Gluten Free

Pin It


I developed this recipe because I wanted a fun way to eat Garnet Yams as a healthy breakfast (or dessert!).  This crisp is gluten free and very low in sugar.  If you don’t have a problem with gluten you can just make it with “regular” flour. The topping includes a combination of sliced almonds, cornflakes and coconut.  The total amount of sugar in this recipe is 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of grade B maple syrup in the topping and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup in the 4 pounds of mashed yams.

We love the flavor and texture of dried tart cherries in with the yams.  You can eat this crisp cold, but it tastes much better when you gently heat up the amount that you are going to eat in a covered frying pan.

I hope you try this recipe, I think you will be glad that you did!

I will be featuring many more recipes with Garnet Yams in the future.

What is your favorite way to prepare yams?
