Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Walnut Streusel
(From www.laurenslatest.com with Amber's own variation)
3 large sweet potatoes
4 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter
½ teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons gf flour (I used gf oat flour from Bob’s Mill)
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
Preheat oven 350
Bake sweet potatoes in microwave for 5-8 minutes until soft.
Once sweet potatoes are cooked slice in half and cool, scoop out centers leaving a ¼ inch border of sweet potato.
Mix sweet potato with brown sugar, butter, salt and cinnamon until smooth. Using spoon scoop mixture back into each sweet potato (you could also use pastry bag and tip to pipe into potato).
In small bowl, combine all ingredients for streusel and mix together until butter starts to warm and ingredients start sticking together.
Top the filled sweet potatoes with the streusel and bake 20-30 minutes.
