Easy Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins

Get ready for fall baking with my easy Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe!

Hey y’all!

September seems like one big blur.  We haven’t had much cooler weather yet, so it’s really just been one long addition to summer with the long, hot August days rolling into one more month.  Y’all know I know summer, so I’m not complaining BUT it does finally feel like the time to embrace the new season.  I know crisp mornings and fall color is just around the corner.  And fall just happens to be a magical time to live in the mountains of western North Carolina.

Since October starts tomorrow I decided it was time to start rolling out some new fall-ish recipes for you to try.  First up is a new muffin that is tasty, healthy and simple to make!  My easy Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe is even just sweet enough with no added refined sugar.

Why You’ll Love This Easy Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe…

This naturally sweetened muffin starts with fresh, mashed sweet potato.  I just quickly make mine in the microwave but if you like to make your spuds in the oven, that works too!  I put my microwave instructions in the recipe card below.

The mashed sweet potato comes together with eggs, flour, applesauce, honey, almond milk, and a few other goodies to create the most tender muffin.  I even added a double dose of cinnamon for extra flavor.

Sure you could make these without the chocolate chips… but If I’m going to bake I like to go all in!

I added mini dark chocolate chips for lots of flavor.  Just be sure to save a few to sprinkle on the top so this easy Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe looks pretty.

And aren’t they pretty???

What’s in this Easy Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe?

This recipe is made with lots of baking staples you probably already have!

  • Mashed Sweet Potato
  • Eggs
  • Almond Milk
  • Honey
  • Applesauce
  • Butter <— if you don’t like butter you can use coconut oil!
  • White Wheat Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt


I like using White Wheat Flour for these muffins because it tastes milder than traditional whole wheat flour but still has some of the health benefits!  You can sub whole wheat or white flour if you’d like.

    It’s the first time I have baked with sweet potatoes and it worked really well and the resulting muffins did not hang round too long.

    I’ve seen pumpkin chocolate chip muffins but never sweet potato. Makes sense why it would work! Now I will just have to remember to buy sweet potato.
