Savoury Sweet Potato Protein Muffins

By Kim D'Eon

These savoury sweet potato muffins make a great breakfast, energy snack and, just like scones, they’re great reheated in the toaster oven as a tasty sidekick to a good bowl of soup.

Using cooked sweet potatoes as a base not only makes this recipe rich and flavourful but also provides an awesome antioxidant boost from all the sweet beta carotene. Beta carotene gets converted into vitamin A which is Awesome for eye and skin health and boosting your immunity.

Plus, these babies are truly blood sugar balancing with great amounts of fibre, protein and healthy fats. Those tasty tubers, oat flour and flax will give you a good mix of both soluble and insoluble fibre. And I made sure to load them up with good sources of digestible protein from 4 eggs and a scoop of protein powder so they help maintain energy levels through the day.
