sweet potato and walnuts muffins on a baking tray


Hey guys, I´m back!

I´m sorry for not posting for more than 1 week but I went to Valencia and spending time with my friends and family was a must! AND…it was Fallas! So let´s say that it was a crazy and AMAZING week at the same time. By the way, if you have never been in Valencia during Fallas…what are you waiting for?

Anyway…let´s talk about food, cause that´s why you are here right?


sweet potato and walnuts muffins on a baking tray


This time we are talking about this delicious sweet potato muffins with a crunchy walnut topping. Tender with a cake-like consistency, these muffins are amazingly sweet and rich in flavor thanks to the sweet potatoes. The chopped walnuts add a nice crunch and makes them extra delicious. These are great as a snack or dessert. You can also make them in advance and grab some for a breakfast on-the-go.
