Sugar-free chocolate sweet potato muffins
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds + 6 tablespoons of oat milk
  • 90g of oats
  • 90g of almonds
  • 2 teaspoons of aluminum-free baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of arrow root powder or GM-free corn starch
  • 250g of sweet potato puree, see notes
  • 70g of unsweetened applesauce
  • 45g of rapeseed oil or coconut oil
  • 55g of oat milk
  • 6 (40g) tablespoons of raw cocoa powder
  • 45g of coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (30g) of maple syrup (optional)
  • 40g of chopped dark chocolate (I like Ombar, Lovechock or Alnatura), or 70% dark chocolate
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170°C fan. Combine the chia seeds with the oat milk and let sit for about 10 minutes to thicken. Stir occasionally.
  2. Place the oats and almonds into a food processor and grind to a fine flour. Place into a bowl, add the baking powder, arrow root powder and combine well with a wooden spoon.
  3. In a second bowl, combine the sweet potato puree with the applesauce, rapeseed or slightly warmed coconut oil, oat milk, cacao powder, coconut sugar, and optionally maple syrup. Mix the wet ingredients with a whisk until well combined. Add the dry ingredients and mix well with the whisk. Add the chopped chocolate and give it a last stir.
  4. Grease a muffin tin with coconut oil or use little muffin forms.
  5. Equally divide the batter in the twelve muffin molds. If you like, you can sprinkle some chopped chocolate onto each muffin.
  6. Bake the muffins for about 30 – 40 minutes until you can pull knife out the center of it clean.
To make sweet potato puree, peel 300g of potatoes and chop them into small bites. Steam them for 20 minutes, then mash them with a fork. You can also roast them for about 30 minutes at 180°C in the oven.
You can also easily make your own applesauce.
If you wonder about the long baking time, I have tested this recipe a couple of times, and found that they were perfect some time between 30 and 40 minutes. It will also depend on the number of muffins that you make.
