Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins

Whip up moist, chocolate chip-studded sweet potato muffins for the perfect on-the-go treat or afternoon snack.

During the work week, I don’t have much time to spend cooking up an elaborate breakfast. For those days, I like having Paleo-friendly muffins on hand for a quick boost of energy that I can eat on my way out the door.

These muffins are made with a base of sweet potato purée that sweetens them naturally and provides moisture. The coconut flour in the batter absorbs some of the moisture and keeps things gluten-free.

How To Bake With Sweet Potato

One of the reasons I incorporate mashed sweet potato in my baked goods is the natural sweetness it provides – on the Paleo diet, a natural, good-for-you sweetener is always a hit.

Sweet potato also imparts mega moisture in baked goods. In this recipe, the muffins can thank the sweet potato purée for an addictive, deliciously moist crumb.

Helpful Tips To Get You Started:

  • Use a silicone mold for best results. I prefer silicone molds for muffins because the batter doesn’t stick to the mold, making paper liners unnecessary. If you use a metal muffin pan, you’ll need those paper liners.
  • Swap out the sweet potato for pumpkin. If you don’t have sweet potato purée on hand, simply swap it out for equal amounts of pumpkin purée instead.
