Maple Sweet Potato Muffins / Gluten Free

Coffee or tea and a muffin anyone?! We love starting out the morning with a warm healthy breakfast muffin. These Maple Sweet Potato Muffins are just delicious and super simple to make when you use a pre made gluten free bake mix.

                                        Maple Sweet Potato Muffins

1 3/4 cups gluten free bake mix {we use Pamela's}
1 egg
1/2 pure maple syrup
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 medium baked and mashed sweet potato-yam
1/4 cup liquid, milk or water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons cocnut oil melted
Cupcake liners

Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix. In a separate bowl place the wet ingredients and blend well. Move the wet ingredients into the dry and blend together well.

Pre heat oven at 350. Using a ice cream scoop, place one large scoop into each cupcake liner. Bake for 15 min and check to see if muffins done. If not, bake for 5 more minutes.

Remove from oven allow to cool. Store in container.

Adding the sweet potato to the muffin is a great way to add additional nutrition and flavor to a muffin recipe.

If you are like us and are always looking for ways to enhance a recipe a little, why not try adding in some walnuts, raisins or any other number of things.

The kids will be off to a great start in the morning with one of these muffins too!


Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger,
Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.

Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak;
Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled.

My soul also is greatly troubled;
But You, O Lord—how long?

Psalm 6: 1-3
