i made the following substitutions, so these are very healthy: a combo of 1 c. blended oats & 1 c. whole wheat flour, applesauce instead of oil, reduced the honey to 1/2 c., milk instead of yogurt. also for the topping, cut all the ingredients in half, as i had way too much! this made 18 muffins and they cooked about 19 minutes. beautiful, sweet, and healthy!-01 Mar 2009

Sweet mama potato! Healthy, with spice quantities are just low enough not to overwhelm the naturally mild and pleasant flavor of the sweet potato. This is the critical point. Five stars, if not for the slightly high sweetness (and I'm a sugarholic). ALL kids will devour them. Busy/cheap people, try these variations: Quarter sweet potato and nuke for 8 minutes (check: skin pulls off easily when done, but tears when overdone) Trade honey for brown sugar. Don't feel bad skimping on either. These muffins are plenty sweet. Use 1/2 Cup skim milk instead of yogurt If cloves or ginger aren't handy, try allspice. Mash the potato with the oil, it makes it easier.-18 Jan 2009


Very moist and delicious. I used a full cup of orange juice concentrate instead of honey for a citrus twist and it was perfectly sweet enough - very good for breakfast. I've also baked this batter in a 8x8 glass pan for about 25 min. Yum!-23 Mar 2009

Sweet Potato Biscuits with Honey Butter

At about four o’clock on Thanksgiving day, when I was knee-deep in cooking, I realized that I had forgotten to buy bread to serve with dinner. It was too late to send my husband to the store, so as soon as my sister walked through the door I handed her a stack of cookbooks and said, “Find an easy biscuit recipe.” Wisely, she settled on these Fluffy Sweet Potato Biscuits from Paula Deen’s Southern Cooking Bible. They were such a hit, my family asked me to make them again for breakfast the next day. I did, and we slathered them with honey butter, which made them even better.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are in the same family as other potatoes but cooking them requires a different approach to get the fluffy interior and sweet caramelized flavor we all love. After testing several techniques&mdashwrapping in foil, pricking and not pricking, using a roasting pan&mdashwe found the following method delivered on all fronts, with minimal effort. Pricking with a fork allows steam to release and the potato flesh to separate from the skin, something that didn't always happen otherwise. Baking the potatoes on a wire rack nested in a baking sheet also helped the potatoes cook more evenly (and made cleaning up much easier). Lastly, allowing the potatoes to rest in the turned-off oven for 30 minutes after baking allowed the flavors to develop even further, though you can skip this step if you are short on time.

Paleo Sweet Potato Spice Muffins

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1/2 cup medjool date paste, or other liquid sweetener

Wash and peel the sweet potato. Cut it into cubes, and cook (either boil or steam) until soft. Mash or puree until smooth.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease your muffin tin. Combine all of the wet ingredients including the pureed sweet potato in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

Combine all remaining dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Using a rubber spatula, mix just until combined.

Using an ice cream scoop, drop the batter into the muffin tins making sure you fill and level off the ice cream scoop each time.

Bake for 25 minutes until tops start to brown and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Enjoy!

How to Make Sweet Potato Muffins

Ingredients, Alternatives and Cooking Tips

  • Sweet Potato Puree – You can use your preferred method of making sweet potato puree or you can use well mashed sweet potato. I prefer to roast my potato before pureeing but you could steam / microwave. Learn more about making and storing sweet potato puree here.
  • Banana – The banana provides sweetness and I don’t get a strong taste of banana from the muffin. If you would prefer not to use banana then you could replace it with extra sweet potato puree. The muffin will not be as sweet and you may wish to add a little sweetener to compensate.
  • Egg – If your child has an egg allergy then you can replace with a flax egg. I have tested the recipe with a flax egg and it produced good results. You can find other egg substitutions here but I have not tested any others in this recipe.
  • Milk – To make the recipe dairy-free you can replace with plant-based milk. I tested the recipe with almond milk and it worked well.
  • Whole Wheat Flour – I used plain wholemeal flour, I am currently living in Australia and find their wholemeal flour whiter in colour and it appears more processed than the wholemeal flour I was used to in the UK. I can not guarantee what the results will be like with less processed wholemeal flour as I haven’t tested. The recipe will also work well with plain/all-purpose flour or a mix of both if you prefer.
  • Oat Flour – Can easily be made by blending rolled oats in a food processor/blender until they are a flour consistency. I usually make a large batch to store and use as needed.
  • Spices – Spices are for flavour and can be adjusted to taste. Don’t be scared to add spices to the food you serve your baby. It is good to introduce a range of flavours from an early age.
  • Baking Powder – Make sure you are organised (have baking tray prepared and ready & sultanas drained) before you add the dry ingredients to the wet. Once the baking powder in the batter is activated, you need to capitalise on this chemical reaction quickly so that the heat of the oven can set the air bubbles in place.
  • Sultanas – The sultanas are the main source of sweetness so if you would prefer not to add them then you would need to replace them with something sweet, a different dried fruit, choc chips, a little sugar or maple syrup/honey etc. Soaking is importing to rehydrate the sultanas. Skipping this step will result in the sultanas on top to burn and give a bitter taste to your muffins.

Cooking Equipment

This recipe uses a 24 mini muffin tray and the cooking times reflect this. If you do not have a mini muffin tray you can use a standard tray but will have to cook the muffins for longer (Bake for 20-22 minutes (or more depending on oven) until golden brown and a toothpick in the centre comes out clean.)

Sweet Potato Muffins

1 medium sweet potato
3 large eggs (slightly beaten)
¾ cup coconut milk (full fat)
2 Tbsp olive oil
½ cup honey (or maple syrup)
1 cup brown rice flour (or almond flour)
¼ cup coconut flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground turmeric
⅛ tsp ground cloves
⅛ tsp ground nutmeg

Poke some holes in the potato with a fork. Place on baking pan and bake for 45 min to an hour, or until soft. Remove and let cool.

Oil your muffin tin with coconut oil or use muffin cups.

Cut the potato in half and scoop out 1 packed cup of the potato then put into a large bowl. Eat the leftover potato and skin if you like.

Add the eggs, coconut milk, olive oil, and honey, combine until smooth. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together with a whisk. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Pour the batter evenly into each muffin cup making them about ⅔ full.

Place the tray on the middle rack of the oven and cook for 20 to 25 minutes.

Sweet Potato Protein Muffins

These muffins are one of my favorite muffin recipes because they are so incredibly fluffy and soft. And since this recipe is based off my famous pumpkin protein muffins, you can rest assured that the result is another epic muffin you won’t be able to get enough of!

These muffins are also made with some seriously healthy ingredients:

Sweet potatoes are a great source of two really important antioxidants, Vitamin A and beta-carotene (1). They’ll help protect your cells from harmful irritants and pollutants, and boost your immune system. Sweet potatoes are also a good source of fiber, helping you feel full longer and avoiding cravings (2).

The spices themselves have some great health benefits – get the freshest spices you can to maximize this. For example, cinnamon boosts brain activity, improves circulation and contains anti-inflammatory benefits (3). Both ginger and cloves are powerful antioxidants and can help block the growth of bacteria in the body preventing disease (4,5).

I used leftover roasted sweet potatoes to make this recipe come together in no time. But you can also peel and steam sweet potatoes for this recipe, or you can even buy canned sweet potato puree which is a very convenient option that works great.

These make a tasty grab and go breakfast for those busy mornings when you’re on the run or don’t feel like cooking!

I ❤️Vanilla Protein powder from Whole Betty by Betty Rocker works great in baking, and is also my staple protein shake! It’s organic and has 20 grams of plant-based protein blended from 4 different superfoods!
