sweet sweet potato muffins (in other words, friends came to visit)
I'm way into sweet potatoes.
Maybe because I can, in fact eat them.
And then some friends came to visit, late at night, past dinnertime. And I had all these potatoes.
And so we landed here:
2 smallish sweet potatoes (peeled, boiled and pureed)
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flax seed
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 c. olive oil
1/2 c. coconut milk (or yogurt)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 c. brown sugar (if using chocolate, cut sugar to 1 c.)
3/4 c. Chocolate Chips or crumbled brown sugar for an alternative topping
Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet separately (oil, coconut milk, vanilla, egg, brown sugar, potato puree).
Add chocolate chips (if ya wanna).
Divide between 14-16 greased muffin wells.
350. 24 minutes.
