Sweet Potato Muffins

I do love sweet potatoes. I have since I was a little girl.

Sweet potato muffins have been on my breakfast list to try for a while now -- almost a year! But, this weekend with the rush of cooler weather, I baked up my sweet potatoes for these delicious muffins.

Sweet Potato Muffins - Modified from Laura at Heavenly Homemakers

2 C whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 C honey
1/4 C brown sugar
1 egg
1 C sweet potato, mashed
1/4 C raisins, optional
1/2 C milk
3 T applesauce
1/4-1/2 C granola (for topping)

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, nutmeg and baking powder.

Add to the flour the honey, brown sugar, egg, sweet potato, milk and applesauce.

Mix together the ingredients.

Scoop dough into greased muffin cups (you'll need about 15 muffin cups).

Top with a tsp. or so of granola. Press granola lightly into the muffins.

Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes, or until muffins are done.

These smelled delicious while baking and were filling and tasty. I definitely shouldn't have waited a year to make these :) Next time I'll add some cinnamon. Yum.

  1. Sweet!! I cannot wait to try these - I've never heard of sweet potato muffins.

  2. Yum! Those look tasty. I love sweet potatoes too.

  3. I don't think I've ever been this excited about a recipe in my life!

  4. These look great and using applesauce to replace oil or butter is a wonderful idea. Have a wonderful day.

  5. Yummy, I love sweet potato muffins! I have also used butternut squash if I didn't have sweet potaotes. Very tasty:)


  6. When I see sweet potatoes- I think pumpkin. I don't like pumpkin baked goods, but sweet potato- that might be another story.

  7. These sound very good. I have made sweet potato yeast rolls but never muffins.

  8. I make a sweet potato bread that is simmer, but nearly as healthful. I'll have to try these!!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Many blessings!

  9. They sound so good and good for you too! I haven't baked up anything since last weekend and my Julia Child dinner party that I posted about today. That was a lot of cooking! Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. Love sweet potatoes.. THANKS!!! for the YUMMY!!! recipe. Geri

  11. Sounds good. Sweet potatoes are - well - so sweet! They should make for a great muffin anytime, and especially at the Thanksgiving table. Thanks for the idea and the recipe. :-)

  12. I am on a muffin kick right now and yours will make a lovely addition to my list. Thanks.

  13. healthy and delicious wonderful combination

  14. A great recipe that I gotta try. Thinking pumpkin instead of sweet potato and I'll add the cinnamon. Thank you!!!

  15. You are welcome! I love your blog! I am so glad I discovered it!

  16. I can't wait to make these! I LOVE sweet potatoes and I LOVE muffins. What a great combination. I am always looking for nutrient rich snacks to give the toddlers, too, and this fits the bill.

  17. I made these with the addition of about 15oz. of chocolate chunks - maybe 1 cup? The chocolate is yummy in them - but the kids didn't like these except for the 3 year old and 1 year old. I thought they tasted good, but definitely healthy tasting. Great way to use up the sweet potato mash I froze a couple of weeks ago!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
