Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 50 mins
Calories per Serving:


  • 1 large sweet potato, washed and cut into 1-inch slices 
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil 
  • 1 whole shallot, minced 
  • 2 whole garlic cloves, minced 
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried basil or thyme
  • ¾ teaspoon paprika 
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 
  • 12 large eggs, lightly beaten 
  • 2 cups spinach or kale


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (200°C).
  2. Line a 12-cupcake tin with liners (or lightly coat silicone muffin cups with coconut/avocado oil spray) and set aside. 
  3. Place sweet potato slices in a food processor and pulse until it becomes a crumbly meal, similar to the texture of rice. 
  4. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add the coconut oil. When oil is simmering, add the shallots and garlic. 
  5. Sauté for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant and translucent. 
  6. Add the sweet potato, salt, pepper, and herbs. Sauté for 5 more minutes until the potato has softened a bit. 
  7. Add the greens and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the pan with a lid and let cook for 2 more minutes, allowing the greens to soften. 
  8. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. 
  9. Combine remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add cooled sweet potato mixture and whisk to combine. 
  10. Divide mixture evenly among the liners.
  11. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges have started to pull away and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, but the top is still moist.
  12. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before removing liners.
