Sweet Potato Oatmeal Muffins are tender and nutritious. The recipe is easy to prepare and are perfect as a grab and go breakfast.
This morning I felt the need to bake some fall muffins, this Sweet Potato Oatmeal Muffins recipe was the result. They taste so much like sweet potato pie and using ground oatmeal makes tender muffins that don't readily dry out. The oats of course, also add soluble fiber to the muffins as well.
The sweet potato muffins can be made with fresh grated or cooked leftover sweet potatoes.
Sweet potato muffins are super moist, even after a day or two. Eat these healthy muffins as is or slice and smear on a pat of butter, nut butter or sunflower seed butter. Drizzle with a little maple syrup if you like.

Seriously...can I invite you over
Hmmmm - these sound interesting. I normall don't buy sweet potatoes because none of us like them, but these actually sound pretty good.
This looks super good!! I'm going to have to make it soon!

I'll take a sweet tater as long as they're loaded with brown sugar - this sounds perfect!
These muffins look healthy....and inviting...even great for breakfast! Going to bookmark this recipe. Thanks!
I a like your daughter and LOVE sweet potatoes. I use sweet potatoes in a lot of my desserts. - I use it in chocolate mousse even.
Just made these for lunch! They were a big hit all around! I used melted butter instead of oil which I do for all of our recipes that call for oil; sometimes that affects the recipe, but these turned out perfect on the first try!

I'm glad they came out well, and thank you for your input about the butter swap. I'm sure it will help someone in the future.
