  • 1
    candy potato purée
    (~1 giant candy potato, as recipe is written)
  • 1/3
    maple syrup
  • 1/4
    salted creamy almond butter
    (if unsalted, add 1/Four tsp sea salt as recipe is written // or sub different nut or seed butter of selection)
  • 1
    (or sub 1 batch flax egg per egg — although we haven’t examined it that approach)
  • 2/3
    unsweetened almond milk or cashew milk
  • 1 ½
    baking powder
  • 2
    pumpkin pie spice
  • half of
    gluten-free flour blend
  • 2/3
    almond flour
  • 1/4
    oat flour
    (floor from rolled oats)


  1. To make candy potato purée, halve candy potato and brush the cut-sides with oil (non-obligatory). Place on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 375 F (190 C) for ~25-30 minutes or till tender to the contact. Let cool for five minutes. Then peel away pores and skin and mash in a mixing bowl (or meals processor). Put aside.

  2. Regulate oven temperature to 350 levels F (176 C) and line a typical muffin tin with paper liners.

  3. Add candy potato purée, maple syrup, almond butter, and egg to a big mixing bowl and whisk to mix. Then add almond milk and whisk once more.

  4. Add baking powder and pumpkin pie spice and whisk as soon as extra. Then add gluten-free flour, almond flour, and oat flour and stir to mix. The batter needs to be barely thick and scoopable, not simply pourable (see picture). If too skinny, add extra almond flour or GF flour. If too thick, skinny with a small quantity of dairy-free milk.

  5. Scoop batter into muffin tins (I like doing this utilizing an ice cream scoop) till stuffed nearly to the highest (because the recipe is written, there needs to be 12 muffins). Then drop about half of tsp almond butter onto the middle of every muffin and gently swirl round with a toothpick or knife.

  6. Bake for 26-30 minutes or till golden brown and a toothpick within the heart comes out clear (a number of small crumbs are okay, simply so long as it’s not gooey). Take away from oven and let relaxation in tins for 10 minutes. Then switch to a cooling rack to let cool utterly.

  7. Cool utterly (the wrapper comes off best that approach). Retailer in an air-tight container at room temperature as much as 3-Four days or within the freezer as much as 1 month.
