Skinny GF & Fat free Sweet Potato Apple Muffins

I wanted something yummy this morning for breakfast,  so I put my thinking cap on and threw together the healthiest ingredients that I could find in my pantry!  Originally I felt like a sweet potato pie...but that was way too much work and calories.  So this is what I came up with and you know what? sometimes little miracles happen and you get to reap the rewards.  I ate two right out of the oven and they are delish!!

  2. Hi Linda, Thanks so much for featuring my muffins on your site! I hope the boys like them. I heard a long time ago that a little carbs won't make us fat if there's no fat in the recipe, but when I smear on peanut butter that totally ruins my whole fantasy :) xx
