I have a family member with special dietary needs, so I came up with these gluten-free sweet potato muffins that we could all enjoy. These are just as good as any traditional recipe, maybe better! If you don't have sweet potato on hand, canned pumpkin may be used instead. —Kallee Krong-Mccreery, Escondido, California

  • 2-1/4 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour (without xanthan gum)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk the first 8 ingredients. In another bowl, whisk eggs, sweet potatoes, honey, coconut oil, olive oil and vanilla until blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
