If ever a muffin were meal-worthy and meaty, this is the one. It begins with a mashed sweet potato and ends with a team of ‘superfoods’ encased in the batter. This is the type of muffin that you throw in your backpack before a hike or grab on the way out the door to make up for breakfast. Or better yet, have it for breakfast, toasted and topped with peanut (or other nut/seed) butter, and you will face the day as a force to be reckoned with! The recipe below is a riff on a paleo inspired recipe for Morning Glory Muffins. My version includes dried blueberries, walnuts, flaxseed, and coconut. Did I mention that there is no butter, oil, or refined sugar in them; they really are super muffins.
