This recipe combines several to create one free of wheat, dairy and refined sugar. It is high in iron and protein which is important to those who are either vegetarian, iron deficient or expectant mothers. For those who enjoy more sweetness add extra honey or molasses to the recipe or the raisins. I enjoy it topped with either a little soy butter or non fat plain greek yogurt. Use your imagination and add a little fresh fruit jam or other healthy topping.Submitted by VERITY50
Heres a little recipe I worked out, and Sweet Potatoes are full of vitamin A! These sweet potato or yam muffins have less than 100 calories each and less than a half a gram of fat each! They come out to just under 1 gram of sugar each, but i use no sugar in them so these are naturally occuring. By the way no these are not "mini-muffins"! Feel free to use regular muffins tins like I did... They are a great harmless snack or breakfast addition. To get your vitamin A be sure to pair it with a healthy dietary fat (we need fat to absorb the A) - breakfast with 1 ounce of reduced fat cheese and a piece of fruit is great! So low cal you can mix and match often- and made with whole wheat flour- so you are getting your healthy whole grains and their awesome antioxidants! Enjoy!
*Don't be scared of the prep time- its just for boiling sweet potatoes. I forgot to add the temperature before but I included it now: 425 F. (its in the recipe text now too) Let them cool completely! Even chilled in the fridge helps them to "set". Submitted by LIFEHASCHANGES
