I do not eat desserts frequently, but if I do it has to be made from scratch. I do not buy store-bought cakes, puddings, brownies, or cookies anymore. I bake them all, by doing this I know exactly what I am eating with no hidden ingredients.
- 4 Cups of sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
- 1 Cup light brown sugar or coconut palm sugar
- 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 can of coconut milk (13.5 oz)
- 1 Tbsp ghee (butter)

- While still on the stove add the grated sweet potatoes and then the lime zest (optional), salt and ginger.
- Then fold in the raisins.
