Mashed Potato Muffins
Mashed Potato Muffins 1 1/4 cups almond milk 1 cup mashed potatoes 1 egg 1/3 cup safflower oil 1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheese (I used 1/2 cup Cheddar & 1/2 cup Monterey Jack) 1 2/3 cups almond flour 3 Tablespoons granulated Swerve, Truvia or Stevia 1 Tablespoon baking powder 1 teaspoon sea salt (optional) Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan. In a saucepan, heat milk until it is just starting to steam and then add mashed potatoes. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 2 minutes (mash the potatoes inside the milk so there are no large clumps). Beat in the egg and oil. In a medium sized bowl, combine cheese, flour, sweetener, baking powder and salt. Pour in potato milk mixture and stir just until moistened. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick test shows done. Cool for 5 minutes then remove from muffin tin to rack. Serve warm. Makes 1 dozen *For variety, add in a couple tablespoons of snipped chives or onion flakes and a tablespoon of parsley.
