I recently learned that I can easily make sweet potato puree and then substitute it in for any recipe calling for pumpkin puree. Sweet potato puree is incredibly easy to make and I always have sweet potatoes on hand, so I think it is going to be part of my life for the next while.

I have a giant bag of Craisins so I thought I would mix the two and make some breakfast muffins.

This recipe is slightly adjusted from a recipe found here.

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbs baking powder
1 tbs pumpkin spice
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sweet potato puree (about 2 small sweet potatoes)
1/2 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1 cup sweetened dried cranberries

1. In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin spice, and salt.

2. In a separate bowl, mix sweet potato puree, applesauce, and eggs until mixed. Add cranberries.

3. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and stir until just moistened. Divide batter into 12 muffin cups.

4. Bake at 400°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Suggested Serving: pair the muffin with your favourite warm beverage.

  1. Oh yeah, this is a super easy thing to make, which makes it even more awesome. Glad you're enjoying yourself.

    I just steamed beef for beef paste, to turn into dog treats. And at the store, I snagged a bag of organic carrots to make into a mash, also for dog treats.

    So much fun, food is.

    1. It really is. Love fooling around with it!
