Preparation: 15 minutes

Cooking: 1 hour 30 minutes

Makes: 12 muffins

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 small sweet potatoe

  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseeds

  • ½ cup water

  • ¾ cup organic coconut milk

  • 2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup organic maple syrup

  • 1 cup organic wholemeal flour

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200 C.

  • Prick the skin of the sweet potatoe with a skewer a few times and bake in the oven for about an hour or until soft.

  • Let the sweet potatoe cool off a bit, then cut in half and scoop the flesh into a bowl and mash.

  • Mix the ground flaxseeds with the ½ cup of water and let it sit for about 10 minutes (this replaces the egg).

  • Combine the sweet potatoe, flaxseed, coconut milk, olive oil and maple syrup.

  • Oil a muffin tray with coconut oil and fill with the batter about 2/3 full.
