RECIPE: Sweet Potato Ginger Flax Muffins

Can I share something really important with you? Fiber is the key to you keeping your blood sugar under control! Sounds like you could use a steaming, tasty batch of my Fibery Sweet Potato Ginger Flax Muffins!

More...

I'll say it again: fiber, fiber, fiber!

If you want to reverse your Prediabetes and Insulin Resistance --- eat MORE fiber.

That's right – fiber! Did you know not eating enough fiber is likely a huge part of the reason why you have Prediabetes and Insulin Resistance? It's true!

Flax Seed Meal

So you have to eat MORE fiber, there's no debate to it.

And one of the best forms of fiber is flax seed meal.

Flax Meal

Flax seed meal is super low in carbs AND flax has been proven to:

  • Lower Blood Sugar
  • Lower A1C
  • Lower Bad Cholesterol
  • Increase Good Cholesterol
  • Lower Blood Fats

Go flax! Woohoo!


Sounds like you need to eat flax...and often!

So now it's time to enjoy my Fibery Sweet Potato Ginger Flax Muffins!

They've got sweet potato in them AND fresh ginger root! Super yummy!

Sweet Potato

Recipe: Fibery Sweet Potato Ginger Flax Muffins

Makes 11 to 12 muffins

  • 1 1/2 cup of golden Flax Seed Meal (Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1 tsp baking powder (Bob's Red Mill)
  • 2 TBP CEYLON cinnamon (do not use cassia cinnamon)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 TBSP RAW honey (don't freak out, that's only 3 grams honey carbs per muffin!)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 - 2 TBSP grated fresh ginger root (2 - 4 inches of the root)
  • 1 cup grated RAW sweet potato (peeled)
Ginger Root

Directions:

Mix the dry ingredients with a whisk.

Chop up the RAW sweet potato and ginger with a food chopper. I use my little Cuisinart Chopper to chop up the sweet potato and ginger because I hate using a grater! (actually, I hate grating my fingers by mistake!)

Raw Sweet Potato Chopped

If you don't have a food chopper, use a grater.

Add the egg, water, honey and sweet potato/ginger together, then mix well with a whisk.

Combine the dry and wet, then whisk together.

Fill a muffin tin with parchment muffin-paper.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Let cool.

Tip: These Fibery Sweet Potato Ginger Flax Muffins freeze well, so you can make lots and toss them in the freezer for later.

Trying to eat healthy all on your own is too darn hard.

Grind Your Own Flax Meal To Avoid Rancidity

Flax seed meal can go rancid quite quickly.

The easiest way to avoid this wasteful problem is to grind your own flax seed meal and then store your flax seed meal in the freezer!

NOTE: If your baked flax seed creations taste fishy, your flax seed meal is rancid or you overcooked your flax creations (which makes the flax meal oxidize, and that means rancid flax – SO DO NOT EAT IT!)

I grind my own golden flax seed meal with my Vitamix blender (it only takes about 30 seconds).

You can also grind flax seeds in a Spice and Nut Grinder.

Remember to store your flax seed meal in the freezer!

Or, if you’re not quite ready to grind your own flax, buy quality Flax Meal like Bob’s Red Mill.

I hope you like my Sweet Potato Ginger Flax Muffins as much as my family does. Ginger and sweet potato is an awesome combination!

 (My husband hates ginger, so I get to have all these muffins for myself!!! More fiber for me!)
