Makes 15-18 Muffins 
Serving size based on 1 Muffin 
In the video we made a 15  muffins and then used the rest of the batter to try out sweet potato pancakes. We have the recipe for that one also. Yummy! 
We added sugar to the tops of the muffins in this video but have since made them without the sugar added to the top and they are delicious without the extra step, That is why we left that step out of the instructions. 
Also we have found that adding the baking soda and baking powder to the flour and whisking them together works best- so we have altered the instructions and advise using two mixing bowls; which in the original video we did not. 
Either way they have been made these muffins were so tasty they have been added to our Fall Meal Prep Rotation.
