  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Place sweet potatoes in a large Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, covered, just until tender, 12-15 minutes. Drain; cool slightly. Return to pan; mash with brown sugar, butter, salt, cloves and pepper until smooth. Stir in orange zest, orange juice and, if desired, liqueur. Add bananas and eggs; mix well. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish.
  2. For topping, mix granola, pecans, coconut and brown sugar; sprinkle over sweet potatoes. Drizzle with melted butter. Bake, uncovered, until heated through, 35-45 minutes.
