Slow Cooker Mashed Sweet Potatoes (Paleo)

I am totally obsessed with this easy, healthy, paleo side dish of sweet potatoes.  I made these three time during the holidays and everyone loved them. Super easy and delicious, and they pair well with chicken, beef, and pork, or even on their own.  Only a few ingredients will make you want to make these slow cooker mashed sweet potatoes again and again!


  • 6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced 
  • 2 tbs. ghee
  • 2/3 cup water 
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg


  • Add sweet potatoes, ghee, and water to the slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours.
  • When done, add maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Use an immersion blender, mixer or potato masher to mix till smooth.
  • Top with sprinkle of cinnamon and serve.
