A Different Kind of Sweet

Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins - This recipe was a HIT!  It was made for a cookout and received many compliments and many more bites.  These may not look as wonderful as they taste, but they are so worth it!  The secret ingredient is the sweet potatoes, making the entire muffin so fluffy and moist. 

The secret ingredient

We started out with cooking the potatoes in boiling water, peeling and putting in a food processor.  Mixed with all the ingredients and popped into the oven, these delicious treats were so easy.

Mixing it up

Pour in the batter and bake at 350

Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 medium Nash Produce sweet potatoes
1 cup flour
2 cups light brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 cups mini chocolate chips

  • Cook sweet potatoes in boiling water until tender.  Remove skin and puree in food processor. 
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.  In another bowl mix together oil, sweet potatoes and eggs.  Stir both mixtures together.
  • Fold in chocolate chips and spoon into muffin tins (lined with paper cups or greased).  Fill to top and bake for 15-20 minutes. 
  • Cool on racks and serve.
*We used regular muffin pans, but think it would be wonderful as mini muffins!
