Power Muffins

Power Muffins
September 11, 2018

This recipe has been tweaked from when I started making it. I love that this recipe is naturally gluten free. I have recently added the grass-fed collagen for protein. It also has healthy fats from pasture eggs. The best part about this recipe is that the first ingredient is sweet potatoes! It’s a great way to get kids to eat more vegetables without them even knowing. Our kids absolutely love these muffins. I put them in their lunch sometimes or have them as a snack. Make ahead of time, and serve Monday morning. These muffins are great with a glass of kefir for more calories, protein, fats, and beneficial bacteria to start their day!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato, cooked
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 2 pasture eggs
  • 2/3 cup almond butter (you can sub peanut butter, but it does taste different)
  • 6 TBSP maple syrup, pure
  • 1 1/2 TSP cinnamon
  • 3/4 ginger, ground
  • 2 TSP baking powder
  • Optional: 1-2 scoops grass-fed collagen

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F
  2. Grease a mini-muffin tin with avocado spray or butter
  3. Place all ingredients, except the baking powder, in a high power blender. Blend on high until smooth. Add the baking powder and blend on low until just combined.
  4. Pour batter into the mini-muffin tin, filling each cup 3/4 of the way
  5. Bake 10-12 minutes

Tip
Swap sweet potatoes with 3/4 canned organic pumpkin puree. I keep canned pumpkin puree in the pantry just for this reason!
To make vegan: Stir 2 TBSP ground flaxseed with 6 TBSP of water. Add to blender with all other ingredients.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
