Soft, simple, & so versatile, these unique savory muffins make for the perfect snack or soup sidekick–full of flavor and texture from wholesome ingredients!
Admittedly I have never attempted making vegan gluten-free biscuits of any kind, but after this recipe I kind feel like why bother? These Sweet Potato and Herb Savory Muffins can fill any bread basket or accompany any soup bowl just as well.
And if you are of the type that actually craves savory foods for breakfast or snacks (People like that do exist, right? I’ve heard rumors.) they would be perfect for that job too!
Sweet Potato and Herb Savory Muffins
Sweet potatoes make for a super soft moist texture, and a subtle natural sweetness. Parsley, thyme, and a little bit of coconut aminos bring in the savory flavors. And I added in a touch of freshly squeezed lemon juice too because it has the wonderful gift of rounding out just about anything, sweet or savory. That is a lot of flavor mingling for one muffin!
And the texture has a lot going on too with oat flour as the base, cornmeal with it’s coarse consistency that I love so much in breads, and hemp seeds on top for a little extra sprinkley something.
This is a super simple throw-it-all-in-one-bowl recipe, so you could be biting into all those flavors and textures in less than an hour!
You can use any herbs you like in these muffins, I just went with what happens to be growing in my front yard. The parsley and thyme both paired really well with sweet potato, but I bet rosemary would be lovely too.
A Blogger Collaboration
Remember this collaborative all-things-blueberry post from a couple of months ago? Well the same very creative gang and I have teamed up again, but this time the theme is sweet potatoes. Appropriately fall-esque I think! And the fun of this round is that sweet potatoes can go sweet or savory, so there’s a mix of both…
