Hello! How are you today? Or should I say, happy first day of spring! It still feels like winter around here. I guess what they say is true, “In like a lamb, out like a lion!”
When I first switched to a healthy lifestyle, I was afraid to eat muffins. Many muffins are loaded with fat and sugar and can be over 500 calories per muffin! And that 500 calories was never filling. It felt…empty.
So I was determined to make a muffin that was tasty, healthy, and filling. I’ve posted this recipe before, but I’ve worked hard to perfect it. Who would have thought to put sweet potato in a muffin? But honestly, it’s so good. It adds moisture and texture without any added fat. I’ve also replaced the sugar with sucanat and raw honey. Don’t worry, you can usually purchase sucanat in the organic section of your local grocery store. And the addition of honey makes it nice and sweet. Lastly, I’ve replaced the vegetable oil with coconut oil. I’ve started using coconut oil in all my baking. It adds a wonderful flavour and is extremely healthy for you.
These muffins are my go-to snack in the mornings. I love to warm one up in the microwave for about 20 seconds and then eat it along with my skim-milk latte! You would never know these muffins are full of fiber and other nutritious ingredients. My kids love these muffins too, and they are a quick, easy, and nutritious breakfast for them.
