  • 1 large sweet potato cut in half


  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) chopped pecans
  • 45 ml (3 tbsp.) cold butter
  • 30 ml ( 2 tbsp) brown sugar
  • 3 ml (1/2 tsp) ground cinnamon

Dry ingredients:

  • 500 ml (2 cups) unbleached white flour
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) baking powder
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) baking soda
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) ground cinnamon

Wet ingredients:

  • 5 ml (1 tsp) salt
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) soft butter
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) applesauce
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) maple syrup
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla essence
  • 30-60 ml (2 to 4 tbsp) of milk


1 - Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F).

2 - Place the sweet potato pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 45-60 minutes (or until until the pieces are cooked). Remove from the oven. Leave to cool. Mash into a puree. Set aside.

3 - Increase the oven temperature to 200°C (400°F).

4 - In a bowl, mix all the crumble ingredients until you obtain a sandy texture and the cold butter is the size of a chickpea. Reserve in the cold.

5 - In another bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Set aside.

6 - In another bowl, place 375 ml (1 ½ cups) of the reserved sweet potato puree. Add the softened butter, applesauce, maple syrup and vanilla essence. Mix until you obtain a smooth texture.

7 - Add all the wet ingredients and half the milk to the sweet potato mixture. Mix until everything is combined but nothing more ( add the rest of the milk if necessary).

8 - Line 12 muffin molds with paper or silicone liners.

9 - Using an ice cream scoop, fill the muffin molds with muffins. Add the crumble to the top of each muffin. Mash lightly.

10 - Bake for 20-25 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean).

11 - Remove from oven. Let cool before unmolding. Enjoy! ot

    @Fernande : Bonjour Fernande! Une partie des protéines de la recette provient effectivement des pacanes. Toutefois, il est important de considérer qu’un muffin seul ne constitue pas un repas complet! Merci!

  • Fernande Martel

    Est-ce que ce sont les pacanes la protéines?

  • Isabelle Huot Docteure en nutrition

    @Linda : Bonjour Linda, merci pour votre commentaire! Certainement, il est possible de substituer le beurre pour une margarine sans produit laitier.

  • Linda

    Bonjour, pour cette recette (MUFFINS À LA PATATE DOUCE ET CRUMBLE AUX PACANES) peut-on remplacer le beurre par de la margarine sans produits laitiers et sans soya (intolérances) ? Merci
