I was hosting a women’s bible study group in my home today, so I didn’t get a chance to take photos of filling the pan but this was the remains of my freshly baked sweet potato mini muffins. So, I’m glad that these sugar-free muffins were adult approved too 😛

*Quick Tip: For a mess-free way of filling the mini pan. Scoop the mixture into an icing bag and pipe the mixture into the muffin wells.
