Banana Sweet Potato Bites

These muffin resembling bite size goodies are perfect for a sweet treat or snack any time of the day. They have no flour or sugar (unless, like me, you add mini chocolate chips to some) and are great for between meals when you need a little something to tide you over.


1 medium sweet potato
1 medium banana
1/4 c. almond butter, crunchy
2 eggs
1/4 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
*White chia seeds and mini chocolate chips

Poke the sides of the sweet potato all over with a fork. Place on a paper towel and microwave for 6 minutes. Cut the sweet potato in half to cool for a few minutes before trying to handle. Scoop the flesh into a large bowl. Add in the banana and mash together. Add the peanut butter, eggs and cinnamon and mix everything until incorporated well. Spray mini muffin tins with non stick cooking spray and fill the cavities 2/3 full. Top with chia seeds or mini chocolate chips and bake in the oven for around 18 minutes. Let the muffins cool in the tin for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a drying rack to cool (or try a few warm!)
