I am not even exaggerating when I tell you last week I made these Sweet Potato Crumb Muffins FIVE times, because that’s how fast each batch was eaten. They are THAT good. Oomf, I already want them again.

Sweet Potato Crumb muffins are just sweet enough to satisfy a dessert craving, but also the perfect grab-n-go breakfast or snack packing healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals! They’re naturally sweetened by the potato and with MRM’s Lucuma Fruit powder*, plus they’re bursting with omega-3s from the walnut oil and crushed nuts on top.

Lucuma has been called the “Gold of the Incas” by those in South America, treasured for its sweet, maple-caramel like taste.  Although it is sweet, it has a low glycemic index, meaning it increases blood sugar slowly and steadily without the typical spike seen with most common sugars.  The blood sugar spike is further slowed by the fats in the walnuts and oil, as fats help slow down the digestion of sugars. Additionally, MRM’s Lucuma Fruit Powder is:

  • raw
  • organic
  • non-gmo
  • vegan
  • gluten-free
  • Source of beta-carotene, iron, zinc, calcium and vitamin B3
  • Contains antioxidants, magnesium, potassium and calcium

As I mentioned earlier, these muffins are bursting with omega-3s from the walnuts in the topping, and also the walnut oil in the batter.  Ever since I discovered walnut oil to use in my DIY Walnut Butter (which incredible, btw) I have been OBSESSED with it.  As soon as you pour it into the bowl, the aroma will just make you swoon.  Plus, in my opinion, walnuts are the healthiest nut (which I also talk more about in my Walnut Butter post) giving you yet another reason to whip these babies up ASAP!  I like to use this walnut oil.

Now, before I sign off of here, can we just take a moment to appreciate that crumb topping?!? I’ve never met a muffin top I didn’t like (eh-hem, except for that one that occasionally slides over my jeans 😂). It’s seriously the perfect combination of crispy, chewy, sweet, and nutty, to finish off the moist and delicate based of these Sweet Potato Crumb Muffins.  These muffins tops are so good, I may or may not have picked it off of 6 whole muffins after this photo shoot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
