Sweet Potato Blueberry Muffins


Description

Lightly sweetened, super fluffy and bursting with blueberries in every bite. These sweet potato blueberry muffins are super healthy, full of protein and really low in added unrefined sugar.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1½ cups of finely ground almond flour
  • ½ cup of tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder (see notes)
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon 
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ cup of pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup of light tasting olive oil or avocado oil
  • ¼ cup of packed, fork mashed sweet potato (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • juice from ¼ of a fresh lemon
  • ½ cup of fresh blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare muffin tin with parchment muffin liners or with avocado oil spray. 
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk all wet ingredients until smooth and combined- eggs, syrup, oil, vanilla, lemon juice, sweet potato. 
  3. In a large bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together until evenly combined- almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon. 
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir to combine evenly. Gently fold in blueberries.
  5. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 
  6. Enjoy warm or at room temperature. I think they taste the best at room temp. Store in an air tight container in fridge or at room temp. Best if eaten within 2-3 days. 

Notes

  • You need the inside of a baked sweet potato for this recipe. You can make it the day you make this recipe or use one you prepped ahead of time. Bake a small sweet potato at 425° for about 40 minutes or until a knife pokes thru easily. If you want to hide the orange color from picky kids be sure to grab a white sweet potato. Once you bake the potato scrape out the insides and mash it with a fork until it is really smooth. 
  • Baking Powder- baking powder is not strict paleo because it contains corn starch. Here is a recipe for homemade paleo baking powder if you need it.
