Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Muffins - #MuffinMonday





Recently I found a can of sweet potato in my cupboard that was dangerously close to its expiration date. I can't remember where I got it as it isn't readily available here. But it was perfect timing though as I had no idea what to make for this month's Muffin Monday. I wasn't sure that I'd like the addition of chocolate chips to a spiced muffin but I was pleasantly surprised. It made an already moist and delicious muffin even more tasty.

Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Muffins 
Yield: 16-18 muffins 

Ingredients 

1 3/4 cup sweet potato puree 
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs 
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon grated ginger
2 1/4 cups flour 
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Directions 

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line muffin pan with liners or grease well. 

Beat together sweet potato, oil, eggs, sugar and grated ginger. Whisk flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.

Gently fold the flour mixture into the sweet potato mixture until just moistened. Reserve some chocolate chips to place on the tops of each muffin and then fold the rest into the batter. Don't over mix. 

Divide among the muffin wells filling almost to the top. Top each with reserved chocolate chips. 

Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.

  1. As far as I'm concerned, you can blatantly disregard the expiry date on most canned goods, as long as the tin itself is in good condition. On the other hand, your muffins look and sound delicious! Chocolate makes everything better!
