Sweet Potato and Beet Healthy Muffins

Healthy muffins are a great breakfast or snack item, and especially when they’re (almost) guilt free! These sweet potato and beet healthy muffins are tasty, light, and packed with nutrients. Both the beets and sweet potato contain antioxidants and nutrients that can also help to keep you healthy in the winter months, and also contain healthy starches that can keep your muscles charged for exercise and keep your brain and body energized without weighing you down.

Try these muffins as they are or to mix them up add different types of vegetables “riced” instead of the sweet potato and/or beet.

Enjoy these tasty muffins as part of your weekend or week day routine!
