Ingredients
Wet ingredients
  • 1 cup sweet potato puree about 1 large sweet potato baked and mashed or organic canned puree is fine
  • 2 cups diced pineapple (divided in 1 cup portions)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup plus extra for brushing on top of muffins
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Dry Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400° and prepare a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners
  2. Place cooked sweet potato, 1 cup of diced pineapple, eggs, vanilla extract, and maple syrup in a blender. Blend until silky smooth.

  3. In a medium-size bowl combine whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and turmeric. Whisk to combine.

  4. Add wet ingredients (from blender) to dry ingredients and stir together with a wooden spoon until just combined and no lumps remain (do not over mix or the muffins will become quite gummy) add shredded coconut and remaining cup of diced pineapple and fold in to combine.
  5. Fill muffin tin, I like bigger puffy muffins so I fill the muffin cups all the way to the top. If you prefer a smaller muffin fill to 3/4 full.

  6. Bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Brush top of muffins with maple syrup.

  7. Allow to cool in tins for 7 minutes, then move muffins to a wire cooling rack and allow to cool completely before enjoying.
