My original intentions were to just make sweet potato muffins but my plans changed when I remembered I had just bought a big container of blueberries. Blueberries+sweet potato…it could work? They turned out moist and tasty but not quite as sweet as I would have liked. That’s when the magic happened…turn them into stuffed muffin sandwiches! The protein cheesecake filling adds the perfect amount of sweetness and totally balanced out the other two flavors.
