Sweet Potato Muffins


Nonstick cooking spray

¾ cup unsalted butter

¼ cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

¾ cup mashed sweet potatoes

¼ cup buttermilk

¾ cup whole wheat flour

¾ cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon nutmeg

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon salt


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a twelve-cup muffin tin with paper liners or coat with nonstick spray. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars on medium-low speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add remaining ingredients and beat on low speed until well-mixed. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin.

2. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
