Each of these Sweet Potato Protein Muffins is packed with nutrients, vitamins, minerals and 9 full grams of protein. Enjoy one as a nutritious breakfast or as an after-workout snack. Servings: 12

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 cup almonds (or almond flour)
  • 10 dates, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
  • 1 cup baked sweet potato, skin removed
  • 1 cup vanilla flavored protein powder (low/No sugar)
  • 3 organic eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. Poke a sweet potato all over with a fork and bake at 425 degrees F for 40 minutes. Remove from oven, cool, and remove the skin. Reduce oven temperature to 350.
  2. Pulse the almonds in a food processor until finely ground, or use almond flour. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and pulse until fully combined.
  3. Generously grease a 12-muffin tin with coconut oil. Divide the batter between the 12 muffin tins and bake for 15-20 minutes.
