Gymkitchen: Gluten Free Sweet Potato Protein Muffins (or pie)

Most muffin recipes use white flour, sugar, canola oil and dairy—but not these healthy muffins. Each of these gluten free Sweet Potato Protein Muffins is packed with nutrients, vitamins, minerals and 9 full grams of protein. Enjoy one as a part of a nutritious breakfast or as an after-workout snack. Sometimes I make a pie instead of muffins. I follow the same recipe, but just pour the batter into pie pans instead of muffin cups. This recipe is saved in MyFitnessPal for your convenience by Oh! Fitness. Servings: 12 Here’s what you need:

Gluten Free Sweet Potato Protein Muffin

Gluten Free Sweet Potato Protein Muffin

  • 1 cup almonds (or almond flour)
  • 10 dates, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
  • 1 cup baked sweet potato
  • 1 cup Sunwarrior Classic Raw Vegan Vanilla protein powder (gluten free)*
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  1. Poke a sweet potato all over with a fork and bake at 425 degrees F for 40 minutes (or microwave approx 10 min). Remove from oven, cool, and remove the skin. Reduce oven temperature to 350.
  2. Pulse the almonds in a food processor until finely ground (or just add 1 cup almond flour). Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and pulse until fully combined.
  3. Use a non-stick 12-muffin tin or 12 disposable muffin cups. Divide the batter between the 12 muffin tins and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remember, you can also make a pie! Just use two pie tins and divide the batter evenly. You can keep it crust-less to cut carbs as in this recipe or add your own crust. Happy #gymkitchen eating!
*If you’re not allergic to gluten, then you can use any low carb protein powder you like.
