Sweet Potato Muffins

I developed a sweet potato muffin for The Bais Yaakov Cookbook 2. My family loved it so much that I challenged myself to make it kosher l’Pesach. This muffin is so fluffy and delicious you won’t believe it’s not chometzdig.

Ingredients (10)

Muffins

Start Cooking

Make the Muffins

  1. Place sweet potatoes in a medium pot. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook for 15–20 minutes until fork tender. Drain well. Mash finely and set aside to cool. 

  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 18 muffin cavities and set aside.

  3. Add egg and oil to cooled sweet potato. Whisk to combine.

  4. Stir all dry ingredients into sweet potatoes and mix until completely combined. Fill prepared muffin cups two-thirds of the way full, approximately two tablespoons of batter.

  5. Bake for 22–25 minutes on the center rack of the oven, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Tip:

If you don't use baking soda or baking powder on Pesach, beat a few egg whites and fold them in after you've added the dry ingredients. The muffins won't rise the same way, but they'll still be delicious.

    Sweet Potato Muffins

    Too Little Starch

    I've made this recipe from the BY cookbook and was excited to find this version for someone on a GF diet. The muffins barely rose and collapsed after I took them out of the oven. When I compared with the original recipe, I saw that it called from 2C flour, and this one only 3/4 C potato starch + 1/4 C almond flour = 1 C of starch. Is this possible that it needs more starch? Thanks

    Hi, Here are some tips we thought of that would result in the muffins not coming out right. Did you measure and level off the ingredients? With Pesach recipes, I have learned that overmixing is not great for potato starch as it ends up settling on the bottom. Did you drain the sweet potatoes very well as that is a very important step as well? We hope these tips are helpful!

    Great but for Pesach substitute a different oil

    Canola oil is not Kosher for Pesach. I used walnut oil and also I substituted carrots instead of sweet potatoes and ground almonds and everyone loved them! Thanks!

    Kitniyos alert

    For Ashkenazim who don't eat kitniyos on pesach, the oil should be switched, since canola oil is kitniyos.
