MCLV Mange: Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Muffins

While I’ve definitely been in the cookie-zone lately – I’ve been making variations of these Peanut Butter Banana Cookies multiple times a week – I decided that I needed to give this Sweet Potato Banana Bites recipe a try to add some variety to my life.

And I’m glad that I did!

Sweet-Potato-Banana-Muffins

I made more “traditional” chocolate chip muffins first – Pictured above – And then a healthier version with turmeric, flax & chia seeds. The recipe is quick and easy, and you can add anything you like which is great if you’re like me and too lazy to go to the store for specific ingredients.

Bonus? No flour!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Sweet Potato {Cooked & Mashed}
  • 1 Medium Banana {Or Pumpkin Puree}
  • 1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 2 Eggs {Flax Eggs}
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • Cinnamon to taste

Directions:

  • Smash the sweet potato and banana together in a small bowl
  • Mix in the peanut butter, eggs, vanilla & cinnamon
  • Add mix ins – Like nuts, dried fruit, chia seeds, or chocolate chips – And spoon into muffin tin
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 375
