Sweet Potato Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping


It’s about time I baked some muffins … especially now that the school started and I have a preschool freshman in the house how needs a  lunch box every morning. Oh dear, time goes by so fast… It’s been almost 6 years since I was a proud owner of a pregnant belly. Those were the days … when oversleeping was not a problem, not like now when I have 2 pairs of feet in the ribs, and there was tidiness in the house not cars everywhere … and dinning at the restaurant … Oh happy days !

Back to my muffins, but still thinking about what hubby said “- just deal with it woman, that’s what happens when you have kids :)”

In a large saucepan put to boil the potato and the apple in water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes. Leave the apple unpeeled cause it adds more fiber and flavor.

Mmmm …. Fiber .

Add cinnamon and vanilla and mix. Reduce the heat to a low simmer, cover the saucepan and let it cook 15 to 20 minutes undisturbed. Remove from heat and allow to cool, then drain .
Put in blender. Press the ON button until sauce reaches the desired texture .


Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Put them aside.
In another bowl, mix together : eggs, vanilla, lemon zest, brown sugar, butter (melted and cooled), mashed potato and apple – until it reaches a smooth texture.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ones. Mix just until the flour is no longer visible .
 Do not over-mix the batter .

Spoon batter into muffin forms (it is a softer dough).

Use your finger tips to prepare the topping by mixing the flour + butter + cinnamon + sugar until you get a crumbly dough that looks like larger crumbs.

Sprinkle crumbs over batter.
