Storm Sandy is in full force here in Rhode Island (well, not really as I write this on Sunday afternoon) and I am trying to use up some perishable foods yet make foods would last for a few days or be frozen and then consumed. For this recipe, I used a lonely small sweet potato and the remaining cup of pumpkin puree.

Aren’t the dang muffin/cupcake cups the cutest? I was at T.J. Maxx buying some candles and the dang marketers placed a bunch of these babies in the check-out line. Could I resist them? Could you? Heck no!

Finally, a little Halloween looking packaging as that may be as much Halloween-ish type of thing going on around here today!

Hi Jennifer, Yes, you bake in the cups just sitting in a baking sheet. I am addicted….go buy some. Don’t know when can post next as writing this from phone. Thanks for coming by. XO

Just to confirm-the sweet potato should be raw, not cooked?

Jennifer November 4, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Yes millie!

Can you refine this recipe w coconut flour? Or at least a GF option,?

Jennifer November 4, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Let me ask some GF friends what they how they would adapt!

that is sugar sprinkled on top the muffins as garnish correct?

Jennifer November 6, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Yes Lauren, just for a fun touch…..I think it is sanding sugar.

Can you tell me the name of those great muffin cups you used?

Jennifer November 6, 2012 at 2:25 pm

I do not have the containers anymore – they were in the check-out line at T.J.Maxx Joyce…..they may also be at a Home Goods or Marshall’s.

The baking cups I “think” might be by Paper Eskimo. I bought some there too and those are the brand on my container :)
