Sweet Potato Muffins

School is around the corner and I have started thinking about easy healthy snack ideas that I can make at the beginning of the week and give to my daughter all week and even freeze for later. The first ingredient that came to find is a sweet potato. My daughter is crazy about sweet potatoes and they are extremely healthy!

Sweet Potatoes

The main ingredient in these healthy muffins are Sweet potatoes. They are an excellent source of Vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), Vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, Vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and phosphorus.

Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant known to give orange vegetables and fruits their color, It converts to vitamin A in the body. Consuming foods rich in beta-carotene may reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer, offer protection against asthma and heart disease and delay aging and body degeneration. The healthy benefits never end! They improve digestive health, fertility, boosts immunity, reduces inflammation in the body, and can help prevent vision issues. Love sweet potatoes as much as we do – try this Easy Sweet Potato Soup Vegan Recipe, Sweet Potato Tortilla Soup, and Easy Roasted Veggies.

Lunch Box Staple

I cannot imagine something better to incorporate into my daughter’s back to school lunch box. If you want to add extra flavor and make it more of a sweet, you can add butter to the middle as pictured above.
