Sweet Potato Muffins

These muffins have quickly moved to the top of our list for muffins. There is just something about them that is absolutely wonderful. Technically, they would probably make an excellent fall muffin but we've been loving them in the summer as well! My only complaint is I'm out of sweet potato puree so no more of these for us for a while.
These muffins are no harder to put together than any other muffin. The only possible additional step is the topping but don't skip the topping! It really adds to the muffins and since I eliminated the butter and extra sugar when I modified it from the original recipe I don't feel it's too unhealthy. :)
