Vegan Paleo Sweet Potato Breakfast Muffins

IMG_0210


And here comes another one of my new creations! I decided to make these delicious things before my family and I went on a trip to visit relatives on Maui knowing that I would be the only health freak around who doesn’t like to eat only sausage, eggs and rice for breakfast haha. And of course, I made more than enough to give to all of my family to see if it would pass their test. It doesn’t get any more perfect than having a great recipe and great company to share it with. Ready for more?

Here’s the gist:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of orange sweet potato boiled, mashed and cooled (1 large potato, can sub with Okinawan sweet potato and it comes out just as yummy)- prices may vary
  • 2 ground flax eggs (2 Tbs ground flax seed + 1/3 cup water mixed and set aside to rest for 5 minutes)- $2.69 a bag @ Trader Joe’s
  • 1 Tbs raw honey- prices may vary (I buy my honey raw at my local farmer’s market because it’s not tampered with using heat and supports the pollination of the local Hawaiian plants. I suggest you do the same, it may break your budget a little but it’s totally worth the health benefits!)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon- 99 cents a bottle @ 99 Cent Store
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice- 99 cents a bottle @ most grocery stores
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour- $2.99 1 lb bag @ Trader Joe’s
  • 2 Tbs chia seeds- $9.99 1 lb bag @ Costco
  • 2 Tbs hemp seeds- $12.56 1 lb bag @ Amazon.com

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees f.
  2. In a stand up mixer, combine all of your ingredients together (don’t forget to mix the flax eggs and let them rest for 5 minutes prior to adding them to the mix!)
  3. Scoop 1/4 cup of the batter into each muffin cup in a normal size muffin pan (12 total in a normal size muffin pan)
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Make sure to stick a tooth pick in the center of your muffins to make sure it comes out clean and the muffins have baked all the way through.
  5. Let the muffins rest for 5-10 minutes, serve with your favorite nut butter and ENJOY!

My limitations are a little less-vexing now that I’m home in Hawai‘i and have access to my handy-dandy KitchenAid mixer, Vitamix blender and standard oven and stove, but all my recipes are still their healthy, affordable and delicious selves! Stay tuned for more amazing eats to come.
