Sweet Potato Muffins


These muffins are so tasty and have no oil or refined sugar! I found the recipe at Have Cake, Will Travel!

Next time I make these, I will definitely add some chopped nuts or raisins. But- I will definitely be making these again. The original recipe calls for nutmeg, which would have been great- but my husband doesn't really like nutmeg- so I omitted it. They were great even without!


Sweet Potato Muffins

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ginger powder

1 egg
2 T rum flavoring
2/3 cup sweet potato purée
1 t pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup pure maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350F, line muffin tin with paper liners.

Whisk dry ingredients together in a small bowl.

Combine egg, potato, flavoring, vanilla, and maple syrup, mix well.

Combine wet & dry ingredients, stirring until well mixed.

Scoop batter into prepared muffin tin. Bake for 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
let cool on a rack.
