  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 45 mins

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 6-cup muffin tin

2Combine the sweet potato rice, cinnamon, baking soda, coconut flakes and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Add the egg and egg white, honey and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Fold in the chocolate chips.

3Spoon the batter into the cups, filling each ¾ of the way. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

4Remove the muffins from the tin and allow to cool on a rack for 5 minutes before serving.

*I used 3 ½ Tbsp. and it still had a lot of chocolate flavor, if you wanted to make this lower calorie.
