Sweet, But Not Too Sweet
Get your kids eating their vegetables - and their chocolate. Amy Spiro
A sweet-potato chocolate muffin sweetened with honey makes an almost guilt-free treat.
Sweet potato and chocolate? If you keep making that face, than I won't share any with you, and that would be a real shame. (For you, of course, it works out pretty well for me). It might sound a bit unorthodox, but the combination of flavors in these muffins - sweet potato, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg and of course, chocolate - creates a delicious bite. And with no white sugar, and just a couple tablespoons of oil, these sweet treats are practically guilt-free (Not entirely, I am still Jewish).
If you wanted to get even healthier, you could certainly swap out half of the flour for whole-wheat, though you may need to add an extra tablespoon or so of milk. One of the ingredients here is mashed sweet potato - but I certainly don't mean with any butter or cream added. Cook the sweet potato how ever you want, bake or boil, then mash up the flesh. Now, pass the muffins!
