Pumpkin Muffins

There are a few foods that I absolutely can't get enough of during the fall: Sweet Potatoes (i.e., pumpkin at our house) and Apples.

Love them.

These muffins have both :)

The product is a healthier version of the original recipe -- using whole wheat flour, reduced sugar and replacing some of the chocolate chips with craisins.

Pumpkin Sweet Potato Muffins - Adapted from Alli 'n Son
{Print Recipe}

3/4 C white sugar
1/4 C brown sugar
1/8 C applesauce
1/4 C oil
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 C whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/3 C milk
1/2 C sweet potato puree
1/2 C dark chocolate chips {or craisins}

Begin by mixing together the dry ingredients {flour, spices, salt, and baking soda} in a bowl.

Combine the egg, sweet potato puree, milk, oil, applesauce and sugars together in a second bowl.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until just moist.

Then, stir in your chocolate chips or craisins.

Scoop into lightly greased muffin tins and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned.

 Check for done-ness by sticking a toothpick in one of the muffins -- if it comes out clean, they're done!

  1. Yum!!! Next time try adding a little orange zest to the sweet potato cranberry. Oh my word, it's a little something that makes it so special and tasty!

  2. Great idea to substitute the sweet potatoes for the pumpkin. I'm not a pumpkin fan, so I have to try these with the sweet potato puree. I bet they are yummy! Thanks for posting the recipe.

  3. I like the use of sweet potatoes in place of the pumpkin. Unfortunately, Chris doesn't like either :( Gonna have to make these to take to the office instead! :)

  4. @ Candi -- I bet the orange zest is delicious! Thanks for the tip.

  5. Yummy! These would be perfect for a holiday breakfast potluck.
