Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Muffins

I hit the jack pot with the kids on this muffin recipe that my 4 year old not only told me how yummy these are but he also said "these are better than Eva Ruth's pumpkin muffins!"  Can I just tell you that he made my day.  If you have kids as picky as mine when they like something that you made it is a miracle and a day to remember.  Now Eva Ruth's in Newport, RI does have some of the best muffins I have tasted however this version is tad bit more on the healthy side but don't tell my son that. :)

Paleo Sweet Potato Souffle

I finally got around to using the sweet potatoes that have been sitting on my counter and wow I'm glad I did.  I loved the turnip soufflĂ© dish so much that I figured I would try a version of that with the sweet potatoes and yum a dum dum this is the best sweet potato dish I have ever tasted!  There is something about adding those eggs and baking it that gives it that light and fluffy texture.  I took out the milk that was added to the turnip dish and used a small amount of coconut flour instead of regular flour.  I tried everything to convince my kids to try a bite but as usual they refused.  They would both rather eat Gerber Organic Sweet Potato baby food.  At least it is healthier than eating a big bowl of pasta like so many other kids.  All I can say is "More For Me!"
