Prep time

20 mins


  • Egg: 3 large eggs
  • Oil: drizzle of flavourless oil, such as vegetable or sunflower
  • Sweet Potato: 1 sweet potato (about 200g), peeled and chopped into small chunks
  • Avocado: 1 large avocado, peel and stone removed, roughly chopped (about 150g prepared weight)
  • Feta: 50g feta, crumbled, optional
  • Bicarbonate Of Soda: 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Maple Syrup: 80ml maple syrup
  • Baking Powder: 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Ground Almond: 100g ground almonds
  • Mixed Seed: 2 tbsp mixed seeds
  • Semi Skimmed Milk: 100ml semi-skimmed milk
  • Polenta: 100g fine polenta
  • Sweet Paprika: 1/4 tsp sweet paprika


  1. Place the sweet potato in a heatproof bowl, cover with cling film and microwave on High for 8 mins, or until really soft. Leave to cool completely. Grease 9 holes of a muffin tin with a little oil (or line each hole with a square of baking parchment.)
  2. Chop 1/4 of the sweet potato into even smaller pieces and set aside. Place the sweet potato, avocado, almonds, polenta, maple syrup, eggs, baking powder, bicarb, milk and 1/4 tsp salt in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until completely smooth. Divide the mixture evenly between the muffin tin holes, then top with the reserved chopped sweet potato, feta, seeds and a dusting of paprika. Bake for 22 mins at 180C/160 fan/ gas mark 4, or until risen, browning on top and cooked through - check by inserting a skewer to the centre, it should come out dry. Cool in the tin for 5 mins, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.Store in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
