Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup melted dairy free butter
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened dairy free milk almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk, rice milk, etc. will work
  • 3/4 cup cooked and peeled sweet potato - canned pureed sweet potato works too
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a muffin pan.
  • Whisk all of your dry ingredients and set aside. Whisk your wet ingredients in another bowl making sure to smooth out the sweet potato.
  • Pour your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and mix until combined. Add chocolate chips and mix again just until combined.
  • Scoop your muffin mix into your muffin pan using a size 40 cookie scoop or with two spoons. Fill each cup about 3/4 of the way up.
  • Bake your muffins in the center of the oven for 25 - 27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center is no longer wet.
  • To avoid soggy muffin bottoms flip your muffins out onto a towel and let them cool. Enjoy!


For this recipe, I used a leftover baked sweet potato that I mashed for this recipe. You can also use a boiled sweet potato that has been peeled and mashed, canned pureed sweet potato, or canned pureed pumpkin.
Store these muffins in a sealed container on the counter for about 4 days or in the freezer for 2-3 months.
