Sweet Potato Muffins

The sweet potato crop in North Carolina is reaching its peak and I want to take advantage of this bountiful crop. I decided that the perfect pairing would be the spices I love for fall and some sweet potato puree baked into a tasty little muffin. This is the perfect mid morning treat with a cup of hot coffee. The Husband likes his with yogurt for breakfast. Either way this recipe is a winner!
