  • Summary

    You will be amazed that both these muffins and the caramel sauce, total, are just 8 ingredients. By using both the same ingredients in the muffins and caramel, it makes this recipe ridiculously easy and fabulous. These are pillowy soft and have a wonderful cinnamon flavor that is complimented by the natural sweetness of sweet potatoes and coconut sugar. They are then draped with an out-of-this-world sweet potato caramel glaze that makes them more unique and delicious than any muffin you have had before.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/4 cups almond flour (140 g) (for nut-free, see notes below)
    • 1/2 cup potato starch (80 g, not potato flour) (see notes below for sub)
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (96 g)
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup cooked mashed sweet potato
    • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 cup low fat canned coconut milk (237 mL)
    • 1/4 cup cooked mashed sweet potato
    • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons lite canned coconut milk, shaken well first)
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 4 tablespoons coconut sugar (do not sub with another sugar)
    • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
    • For the very best results, follow the recipe ingredients above for super soft, light, moist muffins. I can't stress how different results can turn out if you sub ingredients, as this was one of my most tested recipes to date. Each ingredient I chose because of the effect it gave in the final result. I provided a few alternatives to try to make this available to anybody, and they all work, but the best result was the above. So, please don't try subbing any other ingredients than the 4 versions I have already provided.
