Coconut and Sweet Potato Muffin Recipe
Ingredients
ย 
1 small sweet potato (about 1 cup packed)
3/4 cup canned coconut milk
1 flaxseed “egg” (1 tbsp. ground flax mixed with 2.5 tbsp. water)
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup pure maple syrup or raw, unpasteurized honeypure maple syrup or raw, unpasteurized honey
1 cup organic brown rice flour
1/4 cup organic coconut flour
1 tbsp. aluminum-free baking powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon powder
1 tsp. ginger powder
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
Instructions
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Use a wooden skewer to make 10-12 holes in your sweet potato and cook it on a baking tray for an hour to soften it.
Remove the potato and let it cool.
Oil your muffin tray with coconut oil.
Cut the potato in half and scoop out the insides into a large bowl (eat the skin for a nutritious snack!).
Add the flaxseed โ€œegg,โ€ coconut milk, olive oil and maple syrup (or honey) to the bowl and combine until smooth.
In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
Pour the batter evenly throughout the muffin tray until each section is 2/3 full.
Place the tray on the middle rack of the oven and cook for 30-35 minutes.
Let it cool, then enjoy! You can freeze these and eat them as you please.

I’m still busy with family and holiday business, hope you enjoy this recipe from the view from great island!

Do you know your trigger foods?ย  I learned about them from my friend Roberta who does Weight Watchers. Trigger foods are the ones you just canโ€™t stop eating.ย  They trigger your binge reflex, or something.ย  Usually they are foods that contain some combination of refined sugar, fats and salt, and theoretically if you can identify your problem foods, you can eat healthier by keeping them out of your life, and your cupboards, as much as possible.ย  They can be a specific food, like Fritos, or a larger class of food, like ice cream. Ive known for a long time now […]
