No better way to start (or end?) the day the muffin way!

Dive right in to these babes. You'll thank me for it.

sweet potato muffin


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup + 2 tbsp pure maple syrup

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 egg

1 cup sweet potato puree/mashed sweet potatoes (1 small or 1/2 1 medium size)

1 banana, mashed

3/4 cup any kind of milk

chopped nuts for topping *optional


1.) To prep the sweet potatoes (this can be done a day or so ahead if you want to get a head start). Pierce the potatoes with a fork and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 45 minutes, or until the inside is soft when poked with a fork. Remove and let cool. When the potatoes are cool, peel off the skin and mash the sweet potato with a fork or masher until any big lumps are gone. Measure out 1 cup worth of filling.

2.) To make the muffins: In a large bowl combine all the ingredients and mix until well incorporated.

3.) Pour into muffin tins/cups. Bake at 375 for approximately 15 minutes. Enjoy!
