Muffin Monday – Whole Wheat Yam Muffins

Posted by Kathryn on July 31, 2011 in Muffin Monday, Recipes |

  Welcome to Muffin (and Cupcake) Monday!



My son loves yams so I thought I’d whip up a muffin recipe using them. Here’s what I came up with.

Whole Wheat Yam Muffins



1 cup whole wheat flour

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 eggs (well beaten)

3/4 cup milk

1-1/2 cups mashed, cooked yams

1/4 cup butter or margarine (melted)

What To Do

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Spray muffin tins with non-stick spray.

Mix flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and brown sugar in a large bowl.

Stir togeher eggs, milk, yams and butter or margarine in a medium bowl.

Stir liquid ingredients into dry ingredients, mixing just to blend.

Spoon batter into muffin tins, filling 2/3 full.

Bake or 15-20 minutes.

Makes 12-16 muffins.

I sprinkled a little powdered sugar over the tops of the muffins once I took them out of the oven. (You could also sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the tops before placing the muffin in the oven to bake.)  These were absolutely delicious and my son  recommends them.  Give them a try!
