Chocolate Sweet Potato Muffins (Vegan)

The other day, we made a recipe that called for baking sweet potatoes.  Well we ended up with more than we needed, so I pureed some to make these Chocolate Sweet Potato Muffins.  These are delicious.

Dense, fudgy and filled with little bits of pecans. Marcus has been taking them to work all week.  This recipe is easy and freezes well too. If you like chocolate, you may also like my flourless chocolate muffins and my chocolate coffee cookies.

  1. Is there a substitute for maple syrup? It is very expensive in my country. I like your recipes but unable to try those ones with maple syrup because of that reason.
    1. You can definitely grind up rolled oats to make oat flour. That's what I do. Almond flour may work, but I would add an egg to help bind. Let me know the results if you try it.
  2. Hello! Is it right that you don't need any plant based milk or egg substitute for the recipe? I'd love to try these muffins; they look amazing!
