Sweet Potato Pumpkin Muffins

I know this is more of an autumn recipe, but I think the combination of sweet potato, pumpkin, maple, and almond butter is good at any time of year! Especially when it is in the form of cute mini muffins.

The perfect snack. Bake these while listening to “We Run“. Can’t get enough of this song right now!

  7. Top each muffin with a spoon of almond butter. (As much or little was you want!) Swirl the almond butter with a toothpick.

  8. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes until golden.

Enjoy them hot and fresh, or let cool and freeze some for snacks. They defrost really well and are also great re-heated in the toaster oven. Even more awesome if you cut them in half and add more almond butter (or jam) in the middle!

  1. I also can’t stop listening to We Run!! Oh and muffins look delicious.. I really should stop reading food blogs at this time of the day. Makes me hungry pre-maturely..

  2. I LOVE sweet potato and pumpkin treats and these muffins look perfect! I’d love to cozy up with a book and one of these beautiful muffins!

    • It is a mix of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves. Adding more cinnamon in lieu of the pumpkin pie spice would also work! I love cinnamon. 🙂
