Sweet potato muffins

I saw a recipe for gluten free / dairy free / sugar free / egg free sweet potato muffins the other day here on Magpie in the Sky blog and of course I needed to try to make these (the weirder the recipe, the more likely it is that I’ll try it :).

I didn’t actually have quite a few of the ingredients but I often improvise when baking so there was no stopping me. I used a mix of coconut oil & avocado oil, a mix of honey, coconut sugar & xylitol (I just had only small quantities of each left), almond milk,  plain gluten free flour and for spice just a mix of cinnamon and nutmeg.

My 9-year old was still awake when I took them out of the oven and he said immediately “Oh, what’s that lovely smell?” (I love the way my kids say things like “lovely” – sounds so English 🙂. He ate two and asked for one in his lunch box tomorrow.


I ate two as well.

Double score.

I love it when a new recipe is a success straight away.

    So pleased to hear that you liked it, and great to see that it worked well with the substitutions. Hope they go down well in lunch boxes today too. 😀
