Sweet Potato Muffins


1½ cups whole wheat pastry flour (or GF, all purpose, etc.)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup mashed sweet potato (or substitute pumpkin)
¾ cup light brown sugar
¼ cup maple syrup


Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease or spray muffin tins.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and pumpkin spice until well combined. Add applesauce, sweet potato, sugar and maple syrup, then stir until just combined. Add dried cranberries or chopped nuts at this point if you like.

Measure out batter equally into muffin tins. Bake for 18 to 25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
