Whole Grain Yam-Banana Muffins

Today I made Yam Banana Muffins! They turned out really well! I was kinda nervous because frankly it was such a strange combination, but they tasted great! I have to admit, taking photos was the most fun part of it all :)

Makes 12 muffins

100 g all-purpose flour (about 3/4 cup)
100 g whole wheat pastry flour (about 3/4 cup)
100 g brown sugar (about 1/2 cup)
10 g baking powder (about 2 teaspoons)
2 g salt (about 1/2 teaspoon)

2 g ground cinnamon (about 1/2 teaspoon)
1/2 large sweet potato, mashed to equal 125 g (about 1/2 cup)
2 medium bananas, mashed to equal 100 g (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup oil

1 large egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Whisk together first 6 ingredients (through ground cinnamon) in a large bowl, making a well in center of mixture.

Combine remaining ingredients until blended. Add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.

Using ice scream scoop, portion batter evenly into lined muffin pans.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from pans immediately and let cool on a wire rack.
