Sweet Potato Walnut Muffins | #MuffinMonday

Three Sweet Potato and Walnut Muffins

Hello, Muffin Monday! I missed you. I can't believe that it has been EIGHT months.  I have not been able to think of new ideas so that along with a bit of busyness kept me away. See also: The end of the month kept surprising me. I already have a plan for November though so that's good news. 

Today I have some sweet potato and walnut muffins. I ALMOST made sweet potato and chocolate chip muffins. I rarely use sweet potatoes in baking so I was shocked when I searched my blog and saw that I made sweet potato and chocolate chip muffins last October.  That lovely creativity rut. 

These little muffins are easy to make and are not very sweet. That makes them perfect for someone who wants to enjoy a muffin without the sugar overload. If you want something sweet, feel free to up the sugar. 

As always, scroll down to see the list of delicious muffins for this month.

Sweet Potato and Walnut Muffins 
Yield: 12 muffins 


1 3/4 cups flour 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon 
1/2 teaspoon ginger 
1/4 teaspoon ground pimento (allspice)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup oil 
1/2 cup granulated sugar 
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk 
3/4 cup chopped walnuts


Grease or line a 12-cup muffin pan. Preheat oven to 425 F. 

Whisk flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, mashed sweet potatoes, oil, sugars, and milk. 

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Gently stir until there are no more streaks of flour. Next, fold in the chopped walnuts. You can reserve some or use additional walnuts to top the muffins before baking. 

Divide the batter among the 12 muffin cups. They should be almost full. 

Bake the muffins for five minutes then lower the oven temperature to 350 F. Bake an additional 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
