Whole wheat flour makes fantastic muffins.  It holds a lot of moisture and adds a pleasantly nutty flavor plus a hearty, satisfying texutre.

I like to make muffins with various squash purees, like pumpkin, butternut, or sweet potato, to give them a nutritional boost.

Combined with a bit of spice and a splash of vanilla, you have a recipe for muffin heaven.  Kids and grownups love these sweet potato muffins!  Watch this 30 second video to see how they’re made.

To keep it interesting, I’m adding a granola topping.  A granola topping gives the muffins a nice crunchy texture on top.  I used Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Honey & Almonds to make the crust.

Tips for Making Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

  • Since this is made all in one bowl, pretty much all you have to do is dump and stir.
  • I love to use an ice cream scoop for measuring out muffin batter.  It’s much easier than trying to use a spoon or a cup.
  • You can add 1/2 cup of your favorite nuts (such as chopped pecans or walnuts) to the batter if you like nuts.
  • Baby food is a great way to add some veggies to your baking.  It’s super smooth and comes plain, without salt or sugar, unlike some canned foods for grownups.
