This recipe came from Allrecipes. I tweaked it only slightly. I love sweet potatoes & honey! I don't think I have made a recipe with honey. But, I use it on things, like biscuits, waffles, etc. Anyway, I am looking forward to making them. I would like to put more sweet potatoes in the recipe, but don't know how that would be. Might be too heavy. So, might try that at a later time. Hope you enjoy the muffins!

How to Make Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 16 muffin cups, or line with paper liners; set aside.
  2. Prick sweet potato several times, with a fork, and place onto a baking sheet. Bake, until easily pierced with a fork, about 40 minutes. When the potato is cool enough to handle, peel and mash. Reduce oven heat to 350°F.
  3. Whisk together next 7 ingredients. Stir in the remaining items, plus the mashed sweet potato, just until items are moistened. Spoon batter evenly, into prepared muffin cups.
  4. TOPPING: Blend together the oatmeal and next 3 items, in a food processor or blender. Sprinkle topping over unbaked muffins.
  5. Bake, until golden and the tops spring back, when lightly pressed, 12-15 minutes. Makes 16 muffins.
