Vegan and Gluten Superfood Longevity Muffins

are you craving a wholesome, satisfying treat that’s bursting with flavor and goodness?

look no further than these Vegan and Gluten Superfood Longevity Muffins!

you probably don’t associate muffins with superfoods and longevity, but with their vibrant color, amazing taste, and seriously nutritious ingredients, these muffins are sure to become a favorite in your household.

taste and texture:

these muffins boast a light sweetness from the maple syrup, complemented by the earthy flavor of the purple sweet potato.

the addition of blueberries adds bursts of juicy sweetness with every bite.

the gluten free oat flour gives these muffins a soft, moist texture, while the arrowroot powder helps to bind everything together perfectly.

the result? a fluffy, yet hearty and dense melt-in-your-mouth muffin that’s SO satisfying.

nutritional benefits:

not only are these muffins delicious, but they’re also packed with nutritional benefits.

purple sweet potatoes are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, making them a fantastic addition to any diet.

they’re particularly high in vitamin a, which supports eye health, and fiber, which aids in digestion and helps you feel full and satisfied.

organic oat flour provides whole grains and additional fiber, while blueberries offer a dose of vitamin c and other antioxidants.

add-in options:

while blueberries are a classic addition to these muffins, feel free to get creative with your add-ins! chopped nuts, such as walnuts or pecans, would add a delicious crunch.

dried raisins or another type of berry would lend a sweet-tart flavor and be good!

how to make them:

making these muffins is simple and straightforward.

start by cooking and mashing your purple sweet potato. for best results, blend the boiled sweet potato in a food processor with a little bit of liquid (water or dairy free milk) so that it’s smoothy and creamy.

then, mix together the wet ingredients, including the sweet potato, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and dairy-free yogurt.

in a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, such as oat flour, arrowroot starch and baking powder.

gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined, being careful not to overmix.

finally, fold in your chosen add-ins, such as blueberries, until evenly distributed. spoon the batter into a muffin tin, bake until slightly golden on top and fragrant, and enjoy!

sweet potato substitutions:

if you don’t have purple sweet potatoes on hand, you can easily substitute orange sweet potatoes or even pumpkin puree.

both will lend a similar sweetness and moisture to the muffins, while also providing a boost of nutrients.

storage:

these muffins can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up a couple of days but i recommend the fridge.

for longer storage, store them in the refrigerator for up to 1 week and warm up before eating!

the freezer is also an option- simply thaw them at room temperature or reheat them in the microwave for a warm, delicious treat anytime.
