Sweet Potato Muffins

Sweet potatoes are good for you and tasty too. When you season them with cinnamon and nutmeg in this muffin recipe, they taste even better…almost like pumpkin!


Ingredients

  • 1 cup sweet potato, mashed (about 1 large sweet potato)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3⁄4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners or spray with non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl whisk together sweet potato, eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, vegetable oil and brown sugar until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Stir into sweet potato mixture until just combined. Add chocolate chips if using.
