Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Muffins
These sweet potato muffins are not too sweet and have great texture from the whole grains. The recipe was taught in a City Market class on gluten-free baking.
Preheat the oven to 350º.
If you are making the sweet potato puree from scratch, slice the sweet potatoes into wedges ¼” thick. Coat the sweet potatoes with olive oil in a bowl and season with a little bit of salt. Bake in oven for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool and puree in a food processor by slowly adding two tablespoons of water or more until the mixture blends easily.
Mix the puree with the other wet ingredients.
In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Add this into the wet mixture and stir well or use a hand blender.
Spoon out into regular-sized muffin tins, filling the cups about ¾ full. Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are dark on the outside and a knife comes out clean. Remove from pan and let cool.
