Sweet Potato Muffins - GF / DF / V

Sweet potato muffins for a filling Fall breakfast, snack or dessert. You really can have them in any season, but October and November are quite the yam kind of time if you know what I mean. They have a great balance of macronutrients and are a wonderful source of FIBER. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes

  • 3 ripe small / ripe bananas - also mashed
