Sweet potato muffins

IMG_2485

The inspiration for this recipe is coming from runners world, but finally I based the muffins on a recipe of Jamie Oliver.

Ingredients:

  • 600 gram sweet potatoes
  • 4 spring onions
  • 2 fresh chilli peppers
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of cottage cheese
  • 250 gram flour
  • 50 gram Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds

Method:

  • Peel an rasp the sweet potatoes.
  • Slice the spring onions and the chilli peppers.
  • Put the sweet potatoes, the spring onions, the chillies, the eggs, the cottage cheese, the flour and most of the Parmesan cheese in a bowl and mix everything well.
  • Season with pepper and salt.
  • Preheat the oven at 180°C.
  • Oil the muffin forms.
  • Spread the mixture evenly over the muffin forms.
  • Finish with the rest of the Parmesan cheese, the poppy seeds and the pumpkin seeds.
  • Bake for 45 minutes in the oven, until golden brown.
  • They can be served after 5 minutes of cooling down. You can also eat them cold during the next days. 2 muffins is a portion for one person.

You can also make the muffins with a butternut squash or with carrots.

blueberry almond cake

For the easter menu, I was responsible for the dessert.  Of course I had to make the melting pot of chocolate and baileys 🙂 Additionally I made a more healthy alternative with less calories, a blueberry almond cake after a recipe of Pascale Naessens.

Ingredients:

  • 50 gram butter
  • 200 gram blueberries
  • 100 gram almond powder
  • 30 gram coconut blossom sugar (or brown sugar if you can’t find that)
  • 100 gram yoghurt
  • 2 eggs

Directions:

  • Grease a cake mold and cover it with baking paper. This makes the baking paper stick well to the form, and when finished, the cake is easily removable from the mold.
  • Preheat the oven at 180°C.
  • Melt the butter.
  • Mix the butter with the almond powder, coconut blossom sugar, yoghurt and eggs.
  • At the end, carefully add the blueberries.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

We have been discussing and laughing a lot in the family with the coconut blossom sugar, but it is not a joke, it really exists.  Just ask in your favorite supermarket, they will help you 🙂
