  • 2 whole eggs
  • ½ cup milk I used whole milk
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt 4% fat (using the higher fat adds more moisture)
  • 3 tbsp real maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 pitted Medjool dates
  • 12 oz cooked sweet potatoes ,cooled to room temperature and peeled. I used 2 medium potatoes.
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup oat bran
  • ½ cup unflavored whey isolate protein powder I used Isopure unflavored whey protein
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Add all ingredients, liquid first, into a blender (a heavy duty blender works best)
  • Blend on low-medium speed until mixture is smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides, until blended and smooth. I used a Vitamix with a tamper to push the ingredients down into the blades.
  • Spray a muffin tin with a healthy oil spray (I used walnut oil, you can also use a cooking spray for baking)
  • Pour batter evenly into 12 muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Muffins are done when a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool and enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container lined with a paper towel.


After muffins have cooled, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
