Healthy muffins are a great breakfast or snack item, especially when they’re (almost) guilt free! These tasty, light muffins are packed with nutrients, thanks to sweet potatoes and beets. Both veggies contain antioxidants and nutrients that can help to keep you healthy in the winter months, as well as healthy starches that keep your muscles charged for exercise. These starches also provide your brain and body energy without weighing you down.
Bonus: Mix this recipe up by adding other “riced” vegetables in place of either the sweet potatoes or beets (or both!).
Servings: 12 mini muffins or 6 larger muffins
Serving Size: 1 muffin
