Sweet Potato Muffins, really?

Flourless Sweet Potato Blender* Muffins

Let’s be honest…this is a funny sounding recipe, full of strange muffin making rule breaking concepts like - 
Flourless? Muffins should have flour in them. 
Sweet Potato? Sweet potatoes are a vegetable and vegetables aren’t typically found in muffins. 
Blender? Muffins aren’t made in a blender.*
This recipe blew all of those muffin stereotypes out of the water, and these flourless sweet potato blender muffins are Y.U.M.M.Y! (Added bonus bedsides no flour? No added oil or refined sugars!!)

Nitty gritty details – prep time is 5 minutes. Cooking time is 23 minutes. This recipe makes 12 muffins.


INGREDIENTS –
• ¾ Cup cooked mashed sweet potato
• 2 medium bananas
• 2 large eggs
• 2/3 Cup almond butter
• 6 TBLSP real maple syrup (the ingredients label should read just 100% pure maple syrup.)
• 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
• ¾ tsp ground ginger
• ½ tsp allspice
• ¼ tsp nutmeg
• 2 tsp baking powder

INSTRUCTIONS –
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin tin**
2. Place ¾ cup mashed sweet potato and all other ingredients EXCEPT THE BAKING POWDER in a blender*
(Be sure to measure the mashed sweet potato, as the texture of the muffins will change if you add a different amount.) Blend on high until thoroughly combined.

3. Add the baking powder and blender on low until just combined.
4. Pour the batter into the muffin tins** filling each cup ¾ of the way full. 
5. Bake in preheated oven for 18-23 minutes until a toothpick or clean knife inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

*The instructions suggest using a blender. I suggest using a food processor if you have one. I didn’t try making them with a blender. I have a wonderful relationship with my food processor and prefer it over my blender. (Nothing personal blender.)
**I got tired of using muffin tin papers (they stick to the muffins no matter what I do) so I bought a set of silicon muffin tins. The muffins fall right out and nothing sticks to the tins. No more broken muffins, and they’re easy to clean. Bye-bye metal muffin tins!
