Sweet Potato Muffin

Don’t be scared by the idea of sweet potato in a muffin. This recipes is sweet enough to be dessert but nutritious and filling enough to be a meal. I recommend using a blender to combine the ingredients, however, I did not have one available and used my immersion mixer. It was a bit more difficult to mix as a result and I ended up with some sweet potato chunks in my muffins. This would have been avoided had I used a blender.

How to make a flax egg
