Sweet Potato Muffins

As many of you know, I am a new mommy! Becoming a mom has been the most rewarding and challenging thing I have ever done. I am sure you other moms can relate when I say that there are days where you hardly have a second to breathe. That is why I am currently on the hunt for healthy recipes for grab and go goods that freeze well. Insert these sweet potato muffins!

Sweet Potato Muffins -
1 large sweet potato
½ cup of milk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 cup of pure maple syrup
1 tbsp. of chia seeds
2 cups of flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. sea salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (plus extra for the muffin tops)

Pre- heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake the sweet potato with the skin on, pierce the skin a few times with a fork first. Once cooked and cooled, remove the skin and mash the potato in the mixing bowl of your stand mixer. Add all other wet ingredients. Add chia seeds. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Slowly combine dry ingredients to the wet. Scoop mixture into lined muffin tins 3/4 of the way full. Sprinkle tops with chopped walnuts Bake 20 min.
