Sweet potatoes are really good for you! And with just a little help, they can be really delicious! And when we say a little help, we mean it! These Sweet Potato Puffs only have 4 ingredients!
Sweet potatoes are a great source of complex carbohydrates and fiber, and are high in B vitamins and Vitamin C. They’re more nutrient dense than many other “staple” foods.
So these Puffs are a delicious and healthy side dish!
Here are the 4 ingredients: sweet potatoes, Cinnamon Brown Sugar Honey Butter, brown sugar, and eggs.
Start by boiling the sweet potatoes until soft. Once they’re drained, let them sit out for a few minutes. They need to dry out a little bit.
Add some of our Fresh Churned Cinnamon Honey Butter. It’s a little sweet, and has great cinnamon flavor. It also adds some much needed fat and creaminess to the potatoes.
A couple tablespoons of brown sugar add a little extra sweetness.
Eggs are food glue. They bind everything together.
You’ll mix everything together until its smooth and totally combined.
Fill up some muffin tins and bake these! Even though they’re baked in a muffin tin, they are most definitely puffs, not muffins! They’re really soft, super moist, and have great flavor!
I mentioned above that this would make a great side dish. But you could also enjoy these as a snack, a breakfast, or as a light lunch! Once you make them, you’ll see how versatile they are!
