FAQs about these Sweet Potato, Bacon and Chive Muffins
Can I use pumpkin instead of sweet potato?
I haven’t tried myself but this substitution should work. I would recommend using sugar pumpkin which is creamier than canned pureed pumpkin. You could also try roasted butternut squash puree.
Is bacon AIP?
It can be. Dr. Sarah Ballantyne includes bacon as an option for folks looking for breakfast proteins on the AIP. As noted above, you want to ensure that your bacon is naturally cured and contains no artificial ingredients. Eileen Laird from Phoenix Helix writes more about bacon on the AIP here.
How do I store these?
Store in an airtight container in the fridge and reheat before serving.
Can I freeze these?
These freeze well but I would always recommend heating them up before serving as the bacon is best when hot.
