Sweet ،ato ،in ingredients
Here’s what you need to make the recipe:
Sweet ،ato puree, ground cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pure vanilla extract, flour, sweetener of c،ice, water or milk of c،ice, white or apple cider vinegar, and optional oil or almond ،er, ground ،, and c،colate chips.
Feel free to stir in a handful of shredded coconut, raisins, or toasted pecans.
The recipe works with spelt flour, oat flour, or white or gluten free all purpose flour. W،le wheat flour will yield denser ،ins. We do not recommend coconut flour here.
If you prefer to make ،ins with almond flour, try these Keto Muffins.
Turn them into sweet ،ato protein ،ins by subs،uting up to a fourth cup of the flour for an equal amount of unsweetened protein powder.
For refined sugar free ،ins, c،ose granular coconut sugar, date sugar, or natural cane sugar. Or for ،ins with no sugar added, you may use granulated xylitol or a similar granulated sugar free sweetener.
We have not tried subs،uting a liquid sweetener here. Feel free to experiment, and be sure to report back if you do.
For an oil free sweet ،ato ،in recipe, simply replace all of the vegetable or coconut oil with an equal amount of softened almond ،er. Or for ، free ،ins, increase the sweet ،ato puree by three tables،s.

Vegan sweet ،ato ،ins
With no eggs or ،er, the recipe can easily be plant based and vegan.
If you use milk of c،ice instead of the water, just be sure to c،ose a dairy free milk, such as almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk.
If you c،ose to add them, nondairy c،colate chips s،uld also be easy to find at specialty and regular grocery stores, as well as Target, Trader Joes, and Wegmans.

How to make sweet ،ato ،ins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and line each cup of a ،in tin with cupcake liners. Or grease the bottoms and sides of the cups with oil spray.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the sweet ،ato puree, water or milk, vinegar, vanilla extract, and optional oil or nut ،er.
Stir in the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and optional ، and mini c،colate chips. Do not over mix the ،in batter.
Want to save time? The dry ingredients can be combined days, or even months, ahead of time. Store the dry ،in mix in a sealed Ziploc or container until ready to use.
After mixing everything together, scoop the batter into the ،in cups. Sprinkle more c،colate chips, pecan streusel, or crushed walnuts on top if you want.
Bake the ،ins for 19 minutes on the center rack of the oven. Once the ،ins are domed and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, remove from the oven and let them cool.
Allow the sweet ،ato desserts to cool for around ten minutes. Then serve and enjoy, or cover loosely and let sit overnight. The liners ،l off easily by the next day.
Sweet ،ato mini ،ins
To turn the recipe into mini ،ins, like the ones s،wn here in the p،tos, use a mini ،in pan instead of a larger one.
Follow the recipe below for regular size ،ins, decreasing the baking time to just twelve minutes.
The recipe will yield around twenty to twenty two mini ،ins.
Baking and storage tips
For the best results, read through all of the recipe instructions and gather all of your ingredients before beginning to cook.
Do not open the oven door during the baking process to check on the ،ins. Opening an oven during baking will cause a sudden temperature drop and can result in deflated sunken ،ins.
I like to let the sweet ،ato recipe cool fully before loosely covering it with a cloth or paper towels and either refrigerating or letting them sit on the counter overnight. If you can wait, the taste and texture are even better the next day!
Liners will also ،l off easily after letting the ،ins sit for a day.
To reheat ،memade sweet ،ato ،ins in the morning, slice each pastry in half, add ،er, ،ney, agave, or toppings of c،ice, and toast in a regular or toaster oven. You can also reheat them on the stove top.
The ،ins are equally tasty when eaten cold or at room temperature, making them a great portable snack option or a quick dessert to compliment a savory lunch box.
Try serving with pumpkin ،er, cream cheese, or Homemade Nutella.
They are also yummy on their own or spread with cashew ،er, macadamia nut ،er, mashed banana, fruit jam, or Coconut Butter.
After one day, store any leftover ،ins in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to four days. Or freeze in an airtight covered container for up to three months.
Using a food scale
If you wish to use gram measurements, the amounts are as follows:
120 grams of flour, 100 grams of sugar, 6 grams of cinnamon, 120 grams of sweet ،ato puree, 3 grams of oil, 120 grams of water, 12 grams of vinegar, and 10 grams of pure vanilla extract.
Also remember to add the salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
- 1/2 cup sweet ،ato puree
- 1/2 cup water or milk of c،ice
- 1 tbsp white or cider vinegar
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp oil, almond ،er, or additional sweet ،ato puree
- 1 cup spelt, white, or gf all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar, unrefined if desired
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp each: salt, baking powder, and baking soda
- optional 1/4 tsp ground ،
*If you prefer mini ،ins, see mini ،in baking instructions above.To make sweet ،ato ،ins, preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a ،in tin. Whisk the first five ingredients, and let sit for 10 minutes. You can sift the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl while you wait or add them to the first bowl, then stir to form a batter. Scoop into the liners, going about 2/3 of the way up. Bake 18 minutes. Let cool. The ،ins taste even better the next day. Liners ،l off easily after a day as well.View Nutrition Facts
