Kumara Banana Muffins

The New Zealand kumara I used is the red/purple-skinned sweet potato it has a white flesh which cooks to a golden colour and is very sweet. It is more of a starchy style of sweet potato, ie it is a dryer style sweet potato,  but you should be able to substitute the kumara for any sweet potato.
This recipe contains no added sugar/sweetener. I make it with very ripe bananas and the combination of the kumara and sweet bananas meant it is sweet enough for my families palates. If you need some extra sweetness try adding 1 Tbsp of honey or maple syrup, or a little sugar
I made this kumara banana muffin recipe dairy free by using coconut oil, but it also works fine with melted butter as well. My kiddos love them. I can send them to kindy, as we are not a nut-free kindy. But if you are a nut free school you could substitute the ground almonds for coconut flour.

  • 220g ripe banana (2 small)
  • 2 Eggs
