Dry ingredients:

Wet ingredients:


  • I recommend using a kitchen scale for this recipe. You can easily switch between US and metric measurements underneath the ingredient list. Check the video below for easy visual instructions.
  • Peel and chop one medium sweet potato into chunks and boil in water for about 10 minutes or until fork tender. Discard the water and mash the sweet potato with a potato masher.

  • Preheat oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C) and line a muffin tin with liners or grease the inside of each cup with coconut oil. I used a silicone muffin mold.
  • Put all dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips) into a bowl and mix with a whisk. You can also process the dry ingredients in a food processor (that's what I did).
  • Add all wet ingredients to the bowl (or food processor) which contains the dry ingredients and whisk/stir again or use the pulse function of your food processor until just combined (don't overmix).
  • Finally, add the chocolate chips and stir with a spoon.
  • Pour the batter into the muffin mold and add more chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. It's fine if it's slightly sticky/crumbly but shouldn't be wet.
  • Let the sweet potato muffins cool and enjoy!



  • *To make your own oat flour, simply process oats in a blender or electric coffee/spice grinder. You can try using buckwheat flour for a grain-free version. Also, regular flour or spelt flour (for a non-gluten-free version) should work well in this recipe (I haven't tried it myself though).
  • **Granulated sweetener: You can use regular sugar, Erythritol, Xylitol (birch sugar), coconut sugar, etc. I used Xylitol.
  • ***Any other ground nuts can be used instead of almonds. For a nut-free version, you can use 56 grams of ground shredded unsweetened coconut.
  • ****I used canned coconut milk. You can use any other dairy-free milk in this recipe. The higher the fat content, the better the muffins will taste.
