Sweet Potato Muffins with Bananas

These Sweet Potato Muffins are a family favorite (and have actually become the all time favorite  snack in my girls math class in High School). The first time they brought these to their teacher (who they absolutley love and adore) she loved them. So, through out the year they brought in many batches and then the kids started wanting them and more and more people kept taking them from the poor teacher. I think I've now made them a few dozen times for not only one of their favorite teachers (and her daughter) but for the entire math class. Since school is out in just a few days, I've got the final request from my daughter to make yet anther batch of these one last time for the 2010-2011 Algebra 2 class of the lovely Mrs. Rinkel (and of course, I am SO happy to oblige).

This recipe is already a favorite here on my blog Magic Sweet Potato Muffins. But a few times ago, I tried to add in some mashed bananas and the results were just as good. The taste is really almost the same, but the added nutrition wont hurt. (I hate just eating bananas, so now I get them in some other way)


Magic Muffins
from Food Network - Melissa's Easy Left Overs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup mashed sweet potatoes

1 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup or more mini chocolate chips

Mix sugar, applesauce, eggs, sweet potatoes, bananas and oil in a bowl. In another bowl whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spice. Mix the potato mixture into the flour mixture, then stir in some mini chocolate chips. Spoon into greased regular muffin pan, with or with out cupcake liners. Bake 12-13 minutes at 375.

  12. These went over great with my 13 month old! I left out the chocolate chips but doubled the recipe and did one portion of sweet potato and one of zucchini. She loved them!

  16. I just put them in the oven! Last minute woopsy moment and realized that my whole wheat flour was bad (don't ask..) so I had to use all white. I'm sure they will still be good! I also added cinnamon because I love it!
