Made with sweet potatoes, dried cranberries, and pecans, these taste like they should be on a holiday table!

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup sweetened dried cranberries (such as Craisins®)
  • 1 cup hot water, or as needed
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 (15 ounce) can sweet potatoes, undrained
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup chopped pecans

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 6 jumbo muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. 2 Soak dried cranberries in a bowl of hot water until plump, about 10 minutes; drain.
  3. 3 Combine whole wheat flour, white sugar, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Beat sweet potatoes, eggs, and coconut oil together in a separate bowl until smooth; stir into flour mixture until batter is smooth. Fold plump sweetened cranberries and pecans into batter; spoon into prepared muffin cups.
  4. 4 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.
