Food Friday: Sweet Potato Banana Muffins

Happy Friday!! I’m so ready to start the weekend, but I know I will only be stressed out by how much work I have to do already in classes! Does anyone else in school feel this way? I mean classes just started a couple weeks ago! How can we already have so much to do?! Okay. Rant over.

Lets just focus on the weekend and this Delicious new recipe I have for all of you! I spent a couple hours yesterday doing some cooking. If you missed my last Food Friday, I made 4-Ingredient Energy Balls and they have been an absolute hit with my family and roommates! I had to double the recipe yesterday so all three of us have enough to make it through the week with them. This week I got an this easy, quick recipe for Sweet Potato Banana Muffins from lovely Jill on her blog Run Eat Snap! She’s completely fabulous, so go check her out if you haven’t already.

Yes, I am using the bottom of a cup to mash the sweet potato and banana together! We had nothing else to use in the house! Give us a break we’re in college!

Shout out to my roommate Maddie for being an awesome photographer and taking some pictures for me!

My Take!

My roommates and I loved these! In the beginning I said that it takes about 1 hour to prep everything, but that’s including how long it took me to bake the sweet potato. If you already have a sweet potato ready then it will only take you around 10-15 minutes to through everything together. It would probably also be helpful to have an actual tool to mash the sweet potato and banana, not only so you don’t look dumb using a cup like me, but also because it will make the batch more creamy instead of having little chunks of sweet potato in the muffins at the end. These were definitely a hit and I will be back again next Friday with another recipe! Have an awesome weekend!

Thanks for reading! Xx
