Incredible Healthy Sweet Potato Muffins with no added sugar made in 1 bowl! Fluffy, moist, and irresistible. Gluten free and toddler approved!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup roasted sweet potato
  • 4oz container unsweetened applesauce (1/2 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups packed almond flour (163g)
  • 1 1/4 cups certified GF oat flour (124g)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Place cooled sweet potato flesh, applesauce, eggs, oil and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add almond and oat flour, baking powder and soda, salt, and cinnamon. Use a rubber spatula to combine batter. It will be thick! Top with nuts.
  4. Spray a 1/4 measuring cup with cooking spray and use it to scoop batter and fill the muffin tin.
  5. Bake for 26 minutes. Cool muffin tin on a wire rack and enjoy! Store muffins at room temperature for up to 2 days and then refrigerate any leftovers.


VEGAN: Sub eggs with 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flax mixed with 1/3 cup of water and set aside to gel for 5 minutes). They will be a bit flatter and may took longer to cook.

These muffins are just barely sweet, making them great for kids too! For sweeter muffins, add 1/4 cup of maple syrup.

1/4 tsp nutmeg is also delish here!

There is no substitute for the flours here and the recipe and I can't vouch for the recipe turning out with alternative flours.
