Maple Pecan Sweet Potatoes

This recipe is Paleo, Gluten, and Dairy Free.

This Maple Pecan Sweet Potato recipe may be new here but I have been making it for 35 years, however now I make it Paleo! Tender sweet potatoes in a ghee and maple syrup sauce with crunchy pecans all topped with a sprinkle of maple sugar. This dish is perfect for the holidays too as it can be made ahead of time and baked off the day of! This is my husband's favorite dish on Thanksgiving!

3-4 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled & cut in chunks
1/2 cup ghee, I like Fourth & Heart
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
(reserve some whole for garnish)
1/4 cup maple sugar or coconut sugar
1 tsp salt
