Description

Made with wholesome ingredients and naturally sweetened, these whole wheat chocolate chip sweet potato muffins are perfect for breakfast and make a great grab-and-go snack.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sweet potato puree (ideally from a can, as this will make the muffins slightly less dense )
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil (I prefer using liquid coconut oil and love¬†this coconut oil¬†which has no taste)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup chocolate chips (depending on desired level of chocolate chippy-ness)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tin with muffin liners.
  2. Mix all of the dry ingredients (whole wheat flour through nutmeg) in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine sweet potato puree, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Pour in melted coconut oil and stir rapidly.
  4. Pour the sweet potato mixture into the whole wheat flour mixture and stir to combine. Once everything is mixed together, gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop the batter into the muffin tins and bake for 22-26 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly and enjoy.
