What You Need to Make Almond Flour Sweet Potato Muffins
- Almond flour: A great gluten-free baking option.
- Mashed sweet potatoes: Ideally use fresh sweet potatoes rather than canned. If you do use canned sweet potato puree make sure there is no added sugar.
- Maple syrup: A natural sweetener.
- Eggs: Binds the muffins held together.
- Coconut oil: Almond flour has fat in it so you don’t need to add much fat to make the muffins moist.
- Pure vanilla extract: Adds flavor.
- Cinnamon: Some extra flavor.
- Baking powder: Needed to make the muffins rise.
- Salt: Helps enhance the flavor.
Making the muffins is simple. Whisk the wet ingredients in one bowl then stir in the dry ingredients until combined. Evenly divide the batter into 12 muffin tins and bake 25 minutes at 350℉.
Storing Almond Flour Sweet Potato Muffins
Muffins can stay fresh up to 5 days if you store them in an airtight container either at room temperature or in the fridge. Since they can last several days, they’re good to prep ahead of time for breakfast or snacks during the week. Pop one in the microwave for about 20 seconds if you want to warm it up before eating it.
