- Prep: 20 mins
- Cook: 30 mins
- Yields: 12 Muffins
2 tsp Organic Maple Syrup
1Start by preheating your oven to 350 F.
2Line a 12 cup muffin pan with liners. We prefer to use the Unbleached Large Baking Cups by If You Care.
3Chop your sweet potato into cubes and boil until soft.
4Get our your handy-dandy food processor and fill with dates, sweet potato, almond milk, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Process mixture until smooth.
5Whisk together dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add to food processor in small batches. Pulse ingredients being careful not to overmix the batter.
6Scoop batter into each pan liner. I've found a 1/3 measuring cup is the perfect tool for consistent sized muffins!
7Bake for 27 to 30 minutes. Make sure to check your muffins with a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, they are ready to cool.
8Once your sweet potato muffins have cooled completely, try them with a spread of almond butter or your favorite nut butter!
