15 min 30 min 45 min 12


1 cup chopped Apple (diced)
3 tsp Baking powder
1/4 cup packed Brown sugar
1 tbsp Butter, salted (melted)
1 tsp Cinnamon
3 tbsp Coconut oil
1 large egg Egg
1/4 cup Greek yogurt, plain, fat-free
1/8 tsp Ground cloves
1/2 tsp Ginger, ground
1/3 cup Maple syrup
1/8 tsp Nutmeg, ground
1/2 cup Pecans (chopped)
1 tsp Salt
1 cup Sweet potato purée, canned (baked)
1 cup Wheat flour, whole wheat
1 cup Whey protein powder, unflavoured (or vanilla, can be replaced with 1 cup flour)


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease each cup of a standard 12-cup muffin tin, and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together the yogurt, egg, honey, coconut oil, and sweet potato puree. Beat until smooth.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet mixture. Stir them together, being careful not to over-stir. Gently fold in the chopped apples.
In a small bowl, stir together the packed brown sugar, pecan pieces, and melted butter to make the streusel.
Fill the prepared muffin tin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle each muffin with a heaping teaspoon of streusel topping. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until muffins are golden and spring back when touched. Cool on a wire rack for several minutes, and serve warm.
