Roasted Sweet Potato and Blueberry Muffins

By on July 21, 2017

These muffins are one of the most popular recipes on the Love Child Blog. I have a batch of them in my freezer at all times.

Ingredients
Virgin coconut oil, to grease the pan
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp  milled flaxseed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup mashed roasted sweet potato (roast the night before to make this easy)
1 egg
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup dairy or non-dairy milk
3 Tbsp  virgin coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen are fine, and you can add them to the batter straight from frozen)

Directions
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease the cups of a 12-cup muffin pan with coconut oil. I find muffin papers tend to stick to these particular muffins.

Place the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl with the flaxseed and cinnamon. Stir well to combine.

In a separate bowl,  place the sweet potato, egg, coconut sugar, milk, and coconut oil. Whisk to combine.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just mixed. Carefully fold in the blueberries.

Fill the muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until  the muffins are firm  to the touch and dark golden. A toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin should come out clean.
