Crustless Sweet Potato Pie is a delicious pie made with sweet potatoes, a brown sugar-oat crumble topping and without a crust.!  Since there is no crust, this dessert is a healthier alternative and super easy to make!

Every Thanksgiving, I look forward to making Crustless Pumpkin Pie.  It’s always delicious, a bit healthier, and never disappoints.   This year I thought it would be fun to mix things up and try a sweet potato version of this favorite pie.  I love sweet potatoes just as much as I love pumpkin, so why not try a Crustless Sweet Potato Pie!

Sweet Potato Pie made without crust.

Making pies without crust not only saves calories, but it is so easy to just whip together in a matter of minutes.    No rolling, cutting, or messing with pie dough beforehand.  Just mix up the filling, pour it into the dish and bake. Since there is no crust or barrier between the filling and the pie plate, the key to making a successful pie without crust is to make sure it doesn’t stick.

For years I tried several methods, but the pie would still either leave a residue or just be difficult to remove.  Finally, I tried PAM Baking spray, which does the trick every time!  Just a little (zero calorie!) spray on the bottom of the pie plate and the Crustless Sweet Potato Pie slides right out.

Crustless Sweet Potato Pie

For this pie, I used fresh sweet potatoes, baked them at 425F for 45 minutes.   To make it easier to remove the skins, I ran the potatoes under cool water, slipped the skins off and put them in a food processor.  Then process the potatoes into a puree, add the remaining wet ingredients, and continue to process until smooth.  Last, I combined the sweet potato mixture with the dry ingredients, pour into the pie plate, sprinkle the top with a brown sugar-oat crumble and bake.  Easy!

Crustless Sweet Potato Pie
 
Yields: 8 servings
Ingredients
Topping
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon butter (I use light butter)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
Pie
  • 1 pound cooked, peeled sweet potatoes (see note)
  • 1 can (12 ounces) fat free evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup whole wheat pastry flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • PAM Baking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. First prepare topping: In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, oats and cinnamon. Add butter and mix until combined (I find it works best to use my fingers to mix this). Set aside.
  3. Put cooked sweet potatoes in a food processor and process until smooth. Add evaporated milk, eggs and vanilla and process again until combined.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and baking powder. Add sweet potato mixture and fold until combined.
  5. Spray 9-inch round pie plate with PAM Baking spray. Pour sweet potato mixture into prepared pie dish. Sprinkle top with oat topping.
  6. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until set. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes and then move to a refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours to overnight.
Notes
I baked about 4 potatoes potatoes at 425F for 45 minutes, or until softened. To make it easier to remove the skins, I run the cooked potatoes under cold water and then remove skins before place in the food processor. Boiling or microwaving to cook the potatoes work fine too.
