Every week, I boil a few sweet potatoes to incorporate into my hubby’s power breakfasts. I mash them up, and sometimes I add them in his pancakes, or even oatmeal. Sweet potatoes are fantastic because they give him that good carbohydrate that he needs as fuel for his Ironman training. They’re also full of fiber and vitamins A, C, B6, and potassium. I always tell my students to eat a rainbow of colors of fruits and vegetables daily, because each different color hosts a plethora of good-for-you nutrients.
Well, I had an extra cup of mashed sweet potato left over in my fridge, so I decided to make a little healthy treat for me and my daughter. I thought of sweet potato muffins, since they are so easy to eat early in the morning before school, but this time, I decided to add in some mini chocolate chips. BEST. IDEA. EVER. If you’ve never had this combo before, of lightly spiced sweet potato with chocolate, now is the time to make these. I’m totally making these again!
