If you loved my Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins then you're gonna love these gems! I used a little less maple syrup because sweet potato, hence the name is sweeter than pumpkin. Plus the addition of the protein powder added a lovely hit of vanilla.
These muffins are perfect if you're in a rush in the morning and want a nourishing, yet super tasty muffin to get you through a few hours. Plus they are leaps and bounds better than your run-of-the-mill cafe-type muffin because they won't make you bloated or set your blood sugar on a rollercoaster. This muffin would also be perfect paired with my Uber Creamy Raspberry Avocado Smoothie!
Here’s why this muffin is joyous-health approved:
I roasted sweet potatoes specifically for this recipe but you could also use certified organic canned BPA-free sweet potato if you’re in a rush. The taste is not quite the same as using fresh, but your secret is safe with me!
By the way, I don’t write much about the pots and pans I use because they aren’t particularly special or fancy. However, I roast pretty much everything in my 1970′s Le Creuset orange pots. My father-in-law used to have a Viennese restaurant in Toronto years ago, so Walker and I are lucky that we got these wonderful well-used pots from the restaurant. No other roasting pot or pan can match the amazingness of Le Creuset because they cook so evenly and perfectly. And you can buy these pots brand new at any department store! They have VERY joyous colours too — especially the blue.
These muffins are gluten-free, refined-sugar-free, moist and wonderfully delicious.
You don’t need to add mini-chocolate chips but I am not against it ;)

I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of this yummy muffin recipe!
Have a joyous day,
