These muffins are so moist and full of flavor. My husband pops one into a bag and takes to work to nibble on at his desk for a mid-morning treat with a cup of coffee.
How to cook sweet potatoes
Oatmeal Sweet Potato Muffins
Yield: 18 smallish muffins or 12 regular sized
- 1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 (15 oz) can sweet potatoes (yams), drained and mashed or 1 cup fresh sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 cup old fashioned oatmeal
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. butter, melted
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
In a bowl, mix together oatmeal, flour and sugar. With a fork, mix in butter and vanilla until crumbly.
Directions for muffins:Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In large bowl, combine oatmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in sweet potatoes, brown sugar, oil, milk, egg and vanilla, just until well moistened. Fill muffin tins 3/4 full. Sprinkle with Crumble Topping. Bake 15-20 minutes. Makes 18 muffins.
- I made 12 muffins and baked 25 minutes.They were average sized muffins so I assume the 18 per the original recipe would be very small.
