Paleo Sweet Potato Stack Recipe Gluten Free

This is a fun play on the classic sweet potato casserole, super EASY to pull together and oh my goodness sweet and yummy.  Perfect little bit of sweet decadence on your Thanksgiving plate.  Snuggled right next to your turkey, stuffing and brussels sprouts, so good you are sure to go back for seconds.

I am pretty new to cooking with sweet potatoes and I think they may be a wonder vegetable.   The are pretty impossible to mess up cooking, pretty consistently delicious and packed with vitamins A and C and chock full of fiber.  To keep this recipe Paleo friendly I substituted maple syrup in for the brown sugar, coconut milk for whole milk and instead of doing a mash I thinly sliced the sweet potatoes using a mandolin (which has nothing to do with paleo, but makes a pretty presentation), but you can also make thin slices with a sharp knife.  Just make sure to try to slice all in a similar thickness so that the cook evenly.

If your potatoes look like they are drying out 15 minutes into the bake, spoon some of the syrup over the top and cover with foil for the final time baking.
