How to make healthy sweet potato banana muffins
The first step to making sweet potato muffins is to cook the sweet potatoes. Roast your sweet potatoes at 425°F for 45-50 minutes. I recommend cooking the sweet potatoes a day ahead or a few hours ahead of when you want to make the sweet potato muffins. This will allow them time to cool and also make them easier to peel.
Add your cooled sweet potato to a food processor with the mashed banana, eggs, maple syrup, almond milk, coconut oil (melted, then cooled), and vanilla extract. Mix with a spatula or with a mixer until combined.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Pour your flour mixture into the sweet potato mixture and stir until combined. Do not overmix. If you overmix the batter, the muffins may bake unevenly or become extra chewy and tough. Fold in chocolate chips.
Line your muffin tin with reusable muffin liners or paper liners and pour batter evenly into liners about 3/4 the way full. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Frequently Asked Questions
How to store dairy-free sweet potato banana muffins:
Cool the muffins in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire cooling rack and cool them completely.
Next, place the muffins in an airtight container with a paper towel under the muffins to absorb any moisture that they release. This helps keep them fresher longer. And you won’t get any soggy muffins!
Can you freeze sweet potato banana muffins?
Yes! Add the muffins to a resealable freezer bag and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. To thaw, place on the countertop and allow them to come to room temperature. You can then warm them in the microwave or oven for a couple of minutes before enjoying.
You can also store them in smaller baggies if you plan on taking them out one muffin at a time.
What can I substitute for sweet potato in baking?
I can’t imagine why you would want to do such a thing, but, you can replace the sweet potato with canned pumpkin if necessary! You will want to add in some additional sugar since sweet potatoes are much sweeter than canned pumpkin.
