Apple Filling:

  • 4 sweet potatoes pricked
  • 4 sweet apples finely diced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp tapioca or cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Crisp Topping:


  • Preheat oven to 450 F and place the sweet potatoes on a baking tray. Bake until very tender and soft, about an hour. Remove from the oven, cut in half and scoop out the insides, leaving behind a few millimeters of sweet potato around the edges. Set aside for a side dish or smoothie.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 375 F.
  • In a bowl, combine the apples, lemon juice, cornstarch, cinnamon and vanilla. Place the sweet potato jackets onto a baking sheet and stuff the sweet potato jackets with the apple mixture.
  • In another bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, butter and salt. Top the sweet potatoes with the apple mixture then top the apple mixture with the crisp topping.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve with vegan yogurt or coconut cream, if desired.


  • You can serve them as is for a personal sized dessert, or top them off with a little yogurt (dairy free, if needed) or coconut cream instead.
  • Be sure to give the sweet potatoes a good scrub to get rid of any dirt. Run it under cold water and brush them with a vegetable brush to be extra thorough.
  • Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonagold, or Honeycrisp are great options for the crisp as they hold up well to baking.
