Print  Friendly and PDF
This is a yummylicious, wholesome dessert to have around when hunger-attack strikes..Ages ago, prior to the popularity of blog sites, I had picked the base recipe from one of the google-search sites. I don't remember which one though..I played around with it and substituted wheat+wheat bran instead of all-purpose flour replaced eggs with honey and milk, varied the proportions of certain ingredients, entirely skipped some and came up with this recipe which is perfect as per me and members of my household. I am not against eggs, believe me. I love eggs but not in the dessert.Atleast not when I am making it at home. So I try to avoid it as much as I can in my dessert recipes. The eggs weren't missed. I am not against all-purpose flour either. Just like the wheat-flour flavor better than it. The end result is muffins that are moist and scrumptuos.

  • Wholewheat Flour - 1/2 cup, unsifted
  • Unprocessed Wheat Bran - 1/4 cup
  • Sweet Potato - 1 1/2 cups,shredded finely(Use box grater's fine-grate side)
  • Brown Sugar - 3/4 cup, packed
  • Cinnamon Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Vanilla Extract - 1/2 tsp
  • Allspice Powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Olive Oil - 3 tbsp
  • Skimmed Milk - 2 tbsp
  • Honey - 1 tbsp
  • Craisins - 1 tbsp
