Just because you’re paleo doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some sweet potato pie! This recipe is not only a healthier version of sweet potato pie but it’s actually very nutrient dense with healthy fats (from ghee and coconut milk) and eggs and gelatin!
This crust is neither sweet nor salty so you could easily use it to make a savory pie as well!
