Eating healthy can be challenging, especially when you have a sweet tooth. These sweet potato banana bread muffins are a great healthy breakfast option.
FOR THE MUFFINS
- 1 over ripe banana
- 1/2 cup of mashed sweet potato (I used 1 small)
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup of almond butter
- 1 Tablespoon of vanilla
- 2 Tablespoons of filtered water
- 1/2 cup of coconut flour
- 2 Tablespoons of Before You Speak Vanilla Creamer
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon each of ginger, nutmeg, cardamom & cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
FOR OPTIONAL FROSTING
- 1 teaspoon of maca - for hormone balance
- 2 scoops of collagen - for gut healing goodness
- 1/4 cup coconut (or regular ) cream
- 1/2 block (1/4 cup) dark chocolate
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1/2-1 teaspoon of Beforeyouspeak OG instant espresso
- 1 pinch of salt
- Pre-heat oven to 175'C/350/F
- Line a muffin tray with paper cases (or grease well) and set aside.
- Place all muffin ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until smooth and well combined. You could also just mash/stir in a bowl if you prefer
- Pour into your prepared muffin tray
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until the tops spring back when lightly pressed and a tooth pick has just a few moist crumbs attached when inserted into the centre.
- Set aside to cool.
METHODS FOR OPTIONAL FROSTING:
- Melt chocolate _ espresso powder by your preferred method - I like to do mine on the stove, double broiler style but a microwave will work just fine too.
- Add vanilla, salt & stir to combine.
- Add the coconut cream to your espresso infused chocolate and stir until well combined.
- Allow to cool for a few minutes until it becomes spreadable - you can speed this up by popping it in the fridge or freezer for 5-10 minutes.
- Spread on to your cupcakes.
