Mini Sweet Potato Souffles - Our Paleo Life

Mini Sweet Potato Souffles

This has got to be one of my favorite post-WOD foods. An easy little muffin thingy that’s loaded with sweet potatoes and no added sugars. Perfect.

Sweet Potato Souffles | Our Paleo Life

I started with Juli’s recipe at PaleOMG and made some modifications. I know that “paleofying” things is a no-no on the Whole30, but I don’t really see these as muffins, they’re just like small sweet potato casseroles. They don’t have that springy muffin texture, they’re just baked in a muffin tin. There’s no almond flour, coconut flour, or any flour. (unless you count the flax seeds).

But like I said, if this gets healthy food into my mouth real fast after a WOD, I’m all for it. I have made these with the honey, but they are honestly fine without it. I see no need to add extra sweeteners when it’s not really necessary.

Mini Sweet Potato Souffles

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 6 -12
Author: Kendra


  • 1 large Sweet Potato peeled & diced
  • 1 Banana peeled
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Pecans Walnuts, or Almonds
  • 1/3 cup Flax Seed Meal
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Oil softened or melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla leave out for Whole30
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Unsweetened Shredded Coconut to sprinkle on tops


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Place sweet potato cubes in a microwave safe bowl, cover with water, and microwave until fork-tender (mine takes about 7-8 minutes). Drain the water.
  3. If you have a Blendtec, Put all ingredients (except coconut) in the blender in the order listed. Press the Batter button.
  4. If you don't have a Blendtec or have a regular blender, put the sweet potato and banana in a food processor or blender and puree. Then the nuts, flax seed meal, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Puree until completely broken down and smooth.
  5. Then add the wet ingredients: coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Puree until smooth.
  6. Use silicone muffin liners for best results. If you don't have those, use 5" parchment paper squares pressed into the muffin liners. If you don't have parchment, use regular paper muffin liners (these stick a lot more).
  7. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out and pour ingredients into each cup. You're going for about 3/4 full here.
  8. Sprinkle each souffle with the shredded coconut.
  9. Bake souffles for 25-30 minutes or until the tops are a nice golden brown. The inside might still be a little soft.
  10. Try to let them cool a bit before you eat them, it will help them firm up a bit more and be less mushy.

    LOVE these! Making them for tomorrow’s WOD–a delicious Monday treat at the box! Thank you so much! Love this blog! Hoping to snag some goodies via the give-away! Happy Mother’s Day 🙂

    These are great! I made them without any flaxseed and the texture was fine for me. I added an extra egg this time and poked a few cranberries inside!

  3. Jenny Rainville

    Made these for the second time tonight… loved them so much! This time I tried tossing in 1/3 cup of dried cranberries for an extra zing. Looking forward to my afternoon snack at work tomorrow!

    Hi! Trying these tonight – they look amazing!
    What’s the best way to store them so that they keep for a few days?

  5. Anne

    Could you substitute pumpkin for the sweet potato to change it up? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the original, but just thinking of ways to change it up a bit.

    What if we need nut free? What do you think I could replace the nuts with? Is it ok to just leave them out or will it affect baking?

    1. Kendra Benson

      I wouldn’t leave them out, it’s what makes up part of the bulk of the muffins. You could try subbing an equal amount of sunflower kernels (though I haven’t tried this). I think that would work though. If you try it, I’d love to hear how it turns out.

    These are baking in the oven now. I probably ate half the batter before I got them in the tin! I used almond meal because it’s what I have on hand and it (the batter at least!) is delicioussssss.
