Sweet Potato Banana Nut Muffins

I love muffins! I made these the other night and my son and husband absolutely loved them. My son loves to smear peanut butter on top and eat one with a glass of milk.

You can enjoy these muffins for breakfast with a cup of coffee (like I am doing now) or as a snack or dessert.

These muffins are healthy thanks to sweet potatoes or pumpkin, banana, and walnuts. They are also gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly.

Ingredients

1/2 cup cooked sweet potato or pumpkin puree

1 banana, mashed

⅓ cup nut butter of your choice (I used peanut butter)

3 eggs

3 Tbsp. maple syrup or honey

1 tsp. vanilla extract

⅓ cup coconut flour – I think you can use any flour

⅓ cup flour of your choice or protein powder. I used chocolate protein powder

1 tsp. cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

⅓ cup walnuts, chopped

Optional add-ins – chocolate chips ( I didn’t hold back on the chocolate chips), dried cranberries, dried cherries, raisins, or coconut flake

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease with oil.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix until smooth.
  3. Bake for 16-20 minutes
  4. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before eating
