Bacon Sweet Potato Muffins Recipe – From A Paleo Restaurant!

Hey folks. I wanted to let you guys know about a paleo restaurant called Blooming Beets opening in Boulder, CO in April 2014.  It’s being launched by Iva (the girl behind PaleoFlip). It’s great to see actual paleo restaurants popping up! Can you imagine having 100% paleo restaurant options? Being able to go to a restaurant that focuses on local meats and veggies, where you don’t have to worry about asking if foods are gluten free, requesting they be cooked in healthy fats/oils, etc? A restaurant that serves recipes like the one Iva sent in listed below? (Yes, these Bacon Sweet Potato Muffins will actually be on the menu). Check out the crowdfunding campaign to help them get started at a central downtown location.

Now for the recipe Iva sent in to us to share with you all, enjoy:

 Bacon Sweet Potato Muffins


Ingredients (4 muffins)

6 slices of bacon

1 large sweet potato

1 egg

1.5 tsp minced dried onion

Robb Wolf’s 30 Day Paleo Transformation

Have you heard about the Paleo diet and were curious about how to get started? Or maybe you’ve been trying Paleo for a while but have questions or aren’t sure what the right exercise program is for you? Or maybe you just want a 30-day meal plan and shopping list to make things easier? Then Robb Wolf’s 30 Day Paleo Transformation is for you.

    Just put these in the oven. I used two eggs instead of one and ended up with 12 muffins. The ‘large’ sweet potato should be changed to a MEDIUM or SMALL sweet potato if you just want 6.

    Nicole – The SP I used probably weighed about a pound(?). It produced about 6 cups(?)worth of SP gratings.

  2. Wendy says

    Hooray!!! I work in downtown Boulder and will be frequenting this place when it opens! It’ll be great to have a Paleo option in a sea of vegan restaurants.

  3. says

    Those look delicious! I’ll have to try that recipe this weekend. Trying to combine paleo with carb backloading (after hearing the DH Kiefer interview) while staying grain/gluten free and this looks like it will be a nice addition to my current carb meals.
