1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1 tsp chipotle chile powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 375˚F. In a small saucepot, add potato and enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes, until fork-tender. Drain, transfer to a large bowl and mash until smooth. Add buttermilk and stir well to combine. Stir in egg and cheddar and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk remaining ingredients. Sprinkle half of mixture over top of potato mixture and fold in with a rubber spatula. Repeat with remaining flour mixture.
Spoon batter into muffin tins, measuring about 3 tbsp per muffin. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes. Serve warm or cool completely before storing. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
