Charity Chomp: Yammy, yummy muffins for your tummy

Friday 27 January 2023

Who knew muffins could be packed with vitamins and minerals? Get your dose with this yummy, yammy recipe from a local charity.

Local charity Caring Cooks, which provides nutritious food to families across the island, as well as hot meals and cooking education in schools, has shared its simple recipe for sweet potato muffins with Bailiwick Wellbeing.

"Sweet potatoes are a rich source of fibre and contain an array of vitamins and minerals," the team explained.

"One medium sweet potato counts as one of your five-a-day, unlike white potato which does not."

ALLERGY ADVICE: Contains gluten, eggs and dairy.

(Serves eight)
