The filling is sweetened with pure maple syrup, while its crust is enriched with nutritious, gluten-free flour from quinoa, making this sweet potato pie a truly wholesome dessert.

  2. Grease a round baking dish with butter or cooking spray. Transfer the dough to the dish and press it down firmly to form the crust. Refrigerate for 1 hour.(1 hour)
  3. Prehead the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  4. In a food processor, blend the sweet potato and all of the remaining ingredients.(3 minutes)
  5. Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 1 hour.(1 hour)
  6. Let cool before serving. Enjoy!
