BBQ Meatloaf Muffins with Sweet Potato Frosting!

Cupcakes make everything better, right? Here is a fun way to serve meatloaf for your littles and maybe even trick your mind into satisfying that tiny cake craving you may have! Of course, you can substitute the sweet potatoes for a white potato, but there are so many more nutrients in sweet potatoes. Also, the sweetness of sweet potatoes is such a great compliment to meatloaf. Clearly, I’m Team Sweet Potato on this recipe!

1 1/2 lb. ground beef
2 tsp. avocado oil or olive oil
1 small onion, minced
3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1/2 cup Whole30-compliant barbecue sauce
1 tsp. dried thym
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 Tbsp. coconut oil (or butter)
1/4 tsp. salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place ground beef in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onions and sauté, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften.
  4. Add garlic, cook 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  5. Add onion-garlic mixture to ground beef. Add barbecue sauce, sea salt, pepper and dried thyme. Using your hands or a spoon, mix well to combine.
  6. Divide meat mixture evenly among 12 wells of a muffin pan.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in the center.
  8. While meatloaves are baking, steam sweet potatoes until tender, about 10-12 minutes. Drain and puree sweet potatoes and coconut oil or butter in a food processor, or mash well with a fork.
  9. Scoop topping onto meatloaves or fill a plastic zip-top with topping, trim the corner of the bag with a scissors and pipe topping onto meatloaves. Or use a spoon to top.
  10. Drizzle with additional barbecue sauce, if desired.
