Paleo Sweet Potato Muffins (Thermomix Method Included)

Paleo Sweet potato muffinsSeptember is sugar free month – not for me obviously, that would just be silly, but for a lot of people I know. They are doing refined sugar free for the whole month, so I wanted to be supportive and make something that they could eat. So I have made these Paleo Sweet Potato Muffin’s that should help with those sweet cravings… but by now, you should be through the worst of it. They have a lot of eggs, so you might like to halve the mixture to start with to see if you like them… They sort of taste like an eggy, spice cake.

Some people are going completely cold turkey. If that is you, you can omit the maple sugar and rely solely on the sweetness of the sweet potato. I have used all organic produce as well as Organic Spices from Gourmet Organics, check out their website HERE!. I also used  Gourmet Organics Coconut that I milled into Coconut flour in the Thermomix. I find that the desiccated coconut mills much better if it has been toasted a little, as I think it just takes out that last residue of water. Gourmet Organics also sells whole nutmeg, which is so beautiful. If you haven’t tried it before please do, you just need a fine parmesan grater, the smell alone is worth grating it fresh! I am not endorsed by Gourmet Organics, but I love their products and customer service… and it is just so handy to order on line and get all my herbs, spices and other organic goodies delivered.


Fresh whole nutmeg… beside the mazing smell, the most beautiful patterns emerge as you grate.

If you’re not worried about sugar content, to make these very healthy muffins a bit more naughty… I would put a cream cheese icing/frosting on them… you can find the recipe for that in my RED VELVET CUPCAKE BLOG.

So there is my contribution to the sugar free September… I am not with you in body, but I am with you in spirit! I must say that if I was ever going to not eat refined, sugar I would make these to get me through.

I can absolutely say “Enjoy Irresponsibly” with these babies!!!

    I love the smell of freshly grated nutmeg. It’s so much stronger than the pre grated stuff. Plus those patterns are wild! They remind me of brains 🙂

  2. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe well lucky I didn’t realise that September was no sugar month because like you, I don’t think I could do that! Definitely crazy talk 😉

      LOL, Yes Lorraine… but I’m trying to be supportive 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by! Liz x

    Teeheee, I love that you said you weren’t giving up sugar because that’d be just crazy. I hear that sista 🙂
    But…. on a healthier note, sweet potato muffins would be pretty good way to get your sweet fix.

    • Elizabeth Connolly

      🙂 LOL yes… why would anyone give up sugar on purpose 🙂 not that I eat a lot, but when I do I enjoy it! They do taste good, but not the same as a normal muffin, more eggy!… but Paleo people love this type of thing! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Liz x PS… I am so interested in the truffle hunting… I can’t wait for next year… please let me know!
