Ummm, I just put purple potato in my coconut butter cups… Did I just do a really weird, unforgivable thing? Can we still be friends? Please say yes. I promise they’re amazing.

I have been totally obsessing over purple potatoes lately and felt like doing something a little out of the ordinary… Especially now that I am back on the chocolate train. My post-Whole30 brain is saying “Give me chocolate! Oh wait, and some complex carbohydrates, please and thank you.”

During my Whole30 I probably ate a sweet potato (yam) every day for the first two weeks. And while I never really tired of them (evidence here, and also here) I just felt like maybe I could start adding other types of potatoes into my diet. Prior to starting my Whole30, I didn’t buy purple potatoes that often. I do most of my shopping at Meijer and I can’t recall ever finding purple potatoes there… And while have purchased purple potatoes at our Whole Foods, I *try* not to shop there too often because sometimes I have a hard time controlling my impulse purchases and find myself wandering the aisles a little too much…

Anyone else struggle with this?  When I was up at Trader Joe’s the other week, one of the first things I spotted was this giant bag of purple potatoes. I got so excited because finally I could get a giant bag and not just a few (pricey) potatoes at time from Whole Foods. So, naturally they found their way into my basket. And then I realized a cart would have been the smarter option at TJs. But I tell you what, grabbing a basket instead of a cart does wonders for those arm muscles… Well and the wallet, usually.

for the chocolate:

  • 10oz bag dairy-free dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  • 2 tsp extra virgin coconut oil

for the filling:

  • 3 TBS mashed purple sweet potato (see notes for how to prepare)
  • 3 TBS pure coconut butter*
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Line mini muffin pan with 12 paper liners, set aside.
  2. In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in about 20 second increments, stirring in between until chips have completely melted. (You can also melt in a small saucepan on stove over low heat, or a double boiler. Just be careful not to burn your chips whichever method you prefer!)
