But seriously though – sweet potato muffins are really delicious and it was actually kind of mind-blowing how they came to life since they don’t use the traditional ingredients the good ol’ muffin recipes use. I mean, it’s kind of magical that these actually work out.
Instead of using flour, butter, sugar and all those traditional ingredients; I use sweet potatoes, honey and eggs. No flour of any kind! But they come out as soft and fluffy and moist as the ones full of flour you purchase at a store.
They are also jam-packed with a lot of nutritional value and make a really delicious breakfast or snack – or even lunch dessert. I sometimes sneak one or two after dinnertime because I just can’t have enough of them!
While I love to eat them by themselves, since they are already pretty flavorful on their own, I sometimes also drizzle them with a bit more of raw honey and spread them with some organic grass-fed butter. That combo makes the ultimate indulging breakfast.
And since they are made with sweet potatoes + a pinch of cinnamon, we can pretty much consider them the perfect dessert for fall now that the temps are chilly and sweet potato takes over the farmers market by storm. I’ve also been seriously thinking about adding a bit of pumpkin spice in the mix as well to make them even more “fally”
The only thing you need to keep in mind is to use a good-quality sweet potato puree when making them. I prefer to make mine from scratch – but make really sure that there are no big lumps left so there are no big pieces floating in your muffins.
There are no flours at all in these flourless sweet potato muffins. Just sweet potato, eggs, honey, coconut, water and cinnamon. Seriously. They are like magic! They are Paleo, Gluten-Free, Clean Eating and Dairy-Free too.
