Gluten Free Dairy Free Sweet Potato Muffins

Sweet Potato Muffins:  Gluten and dairy-free

Looking for a healthy dessert, a quick afternoon snack or pre- workout energy? Try these gluten and dairy free Sweet Potato Muffins.

I created them for my niece Danielle who has Grave’s Disease and avoids gluten at all costs. She wanted a muffin that would satisfy her sweet tooth , provide a quick snack and be healthy enough to give to her kids.  She’s a busy school teacher who sometimes has to eat at her desk. Since a teacher’s job is never done, she’s grading tests and projects in the evenings after spending time with her children. This leaves no time during the week to bake healthy desserts so she needed something that would keep in the fridge for at least a week.
