Sweeten up your muffins naturally with these Sweet Potato Muffins topped with a deliciously nutty walnut crumble. No one will guess they are gluten-free and vegan!One of the main reasons I love blogging is for this incredible community I get to be a part of. You guys may not see it, but behind the scenes we bloggers are always chatting, encouraging and supporting each other whenever we can. I would be nowhere without my fellow bloggers.

So when my good friend Kelly from Nosh and Nourish asked if I would check out her new cookbook (!!!!) I was overwhelmingly excited to say YES! I know how much heart and soul she put into the book, which was all the more apparent when I got it into my hands.

Sweeten up your muffins naturally with these Sweet Potato Muffins topped with a deliciously nutty walnut crumble. No one will guess they are gluten-free and vegan!This recipe for Sweet Potato Muffins with Walnut Streusel is straight from her cookbook Superfoods at Every Meal. Kelly did the impossible and found a way to incorporate 10 incredible superfoods in some shape or form into every single recipe in her cookbook. From breakfast, to dinner, to snacks to desserts, every recipe is nourishing in its own superfood way.

FYI “superfoods” are nutrient-packed foods that are suggested to be particularly impactful on your health. It’s up for debate what qualifies as a superfood and how many there actually are, but the 10 Kelly highlighted are the following:

Quinoa
Chickpeas
Kale
Sweet Potatoes
Eggs
Honey
Coconut Oil
Greek Yogurt
Walnuts

So basically my entire diet.

Sweeten up your muffins naturally with these Sweet Potato Muffins topped with a deliciously nutty walnut crumble. No one will guess they are gluten-free and vegan!It was nearly impossible to pick just one recipe to recreate for THM readers since all of them looked fab! In the end, the sweet potatoes stole my heart and I knew I had to make these Sweet Potato Muffins with Walnut Streusel.

The recipe sounds delicious just as is, but I ended up making a few tweaks to make it a bit more maven friendly. I swapped out the all-purpose flour for my gluten-free flour blend and used coconut oil in the streusel instead of butter. If you aren’t gluten and dairy-free, then no need to make these swaps!

This was one of the main things I loved about Superfoods at Every Meal, just how adaptable every recipe is. Though some recipes aren’t gluten and dairy-free, they can easily be made so and with a focus on superfoods you know that with each recipe you’re getting a nutrient-packed dish.

A huge congrats to Kelly on her amazing cookbook!
