I've been searching for a good muffin recipe for ages. I'm really quite picky about my muffins, and I typically prefer savory over sweet. I was on the hunt for something I wouldn't feel guilty about eating, and I came up with these last night.
When they popped out of that hot oven, I knew I had a winner.
When I took my first bite, I knew I had a new favourite muffin recipe.
I took some of them to bootcamp this morning, and they were a huge hit with the gals (and the kids). Remember, you can modify as you see fit:
Guilt Free Sweet Potato Muffins
(Yields 10 muffins )
2 cups of wholegrain rolled oats
2 free range eggs
1 cup of sweet potato mash/puree
3/4 of a cup of plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Chocolate chips :: optional!!
Preheat the oven to 165 C
Boil or steam one LARGE sweet potato until tender and cooked through. Mash with a fork or blend, measuring out 1 cup (set aside).
Blend the oats in a food processor until nearly smooth
Than add all the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth
If you are adding chocolate chips, add them to the batter after it's been blended.... folding them in with a wooden spoon
Spoon the batter in a muffin liner or baking sheet. If you use a baking sheet without liners, make sure the pan is greased.
Bake at 165 C for 13 mins
If you do have leftovers, you can enjoy them cold for a quick breakfast or easy snack.
For the Love of Food
I think eating well is a form of self-respect, and that's evident in my recipes.
