Sweet Potato Muffin Recipe

Hi Everybody!

This is that time of year where company, and drop-ins abound. This year, as we all know, doorsteps across the globe may be a bit empty. That’s ok! I have this sweet potato muffin recipe to kind of make for it. Make them. Pretend, or maybe even rejoice in the peace and comfort of your home. Feed them to the family that’s right there with you. They like muffins too, right?

Who knows? Next year, we could all be right back to the regularly scheduled overwhelm. So get some practice this year.

Sweet Potato Muffins Recipe

You will want to begin by roasting your sweet potatoes. Grab about 1-1.5 lbs of sweet potatoes. That will produce enough potato for the amount of puree you will need for the recipe. 375 for 45-65 minutes, and you’re off to muffin land.

There’s not a lot to impart, warn, or advise you on with these muffins. Use sweet potato, or carrot. Put them in muffin tins, or tart forms like I did. Whatever you do, do your best to enjoy the moment.

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla


  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 1/4 cup sweet potato puree
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola or grapeseed oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Line your cupcake tins with paper liners or just spray them with pan spray like crazy.


  • Combine all of the dry ingredients, and then add melted butter. Mix with a fork, and refrigerate.


  • Mix together all dry ingredients.
  • Mix together all wet ingredients.
  • Make a shallow well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour wet ingredients in.
  • Gently combine until mixed thoroughly.
  • Fill each cup 2/3 full with batter.
  • Put in oven, and immediately reduce temperature to 350F.
  • Check back in 14 minutes and test doneness with a toothpick, skewer, or knife. Check every 3 or 4 minutes thereafter until done. The muffins take approximately 18 minutes, but not all ovens are created equal.
  • Enjoy!


Preheating to the high temps activates the power of the baking powder. Just remember to turn it down as soon as you put your pan in the oven!
Browned butter in that crumbly topping can set things off right! Try it.

I have been listening to the complaints of people who would like everyone over for the holidays. Minus the complaints, I’m right there with you…with some exceptions. A happy house full of family is what it’s all about. However, my wacky bunch has proven to be quite the handful this year. A happy, giggly, treat-swiping handful. Whether you and your pet (s), spouse, or full house, really enjoy it. You have a lot to be thankful for. Ok now, hugs!

DON’T FORGET! December dessert boxes are here!

Talk soon!

Love Y’all!
