Muffins! Healthy muffins for everyone! Ok fine, so perhaps not as healthy as we would like, but they make a definite improvement from devouring an entire bag of crisps in one go.

As we approach the festive season we become increasingly aware of two things. One being that attempting to maintain (or indeed start) a healthy diet at Christmas time is next to impossible, and also all anyone ever does when the weather gets rough is develop a craving for comfort foods. 

So, we found this recipe for what essential become sweet potato muffins, just without the trickier aspects of baking with vegetables.

4 Large Sweet Potatoes
2 Tbsp Salted Butter – Melted
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
3/4 tsp Ground Cumin
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
12-15 Marshmallows 


Carefully slice Sweet Potatoes into 1/8 inch slices – add to a large mixing bowl.

Add melted butter, coconut oil, cumin, cinnamon, and red pepper flakes. Toss to coat potato slces. Mix in the parmesan cheese.

In a greased cupcake tin stack the sweet potato chips to fill each cup. Bake in preheated oven for 50-55 minutes until tops and edges nicely brown. Remove from oven and top each stack with a marshmallow. Return to oven for 3-5 minutes – watching carefully – until the marshmallows have a light brown and have puffed up.

Remove from oven – carefully pat down each marshmallow to form a nice dome over the stack. Let cool slightly before removing from pan.
