Streusel Topped Sweet Potato Muffins!

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Pretty much followed the recipe on down, & though it didn't state yea or nay, I DIDN'T peel the potato! Instead I steamed it, then diced it very small before mashing it, as I wanted the flavor & nutrition from the peel to come through! Anyway, after that the muffins were a breeze (pun intended!) to make & they WERE delicious, absolutely so! Thanks for the great recipe keeper! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday recipe tag]

  3. Combine sweet potato and the next 5 ingredients; stir well. Add the sweet potato mixture to the oat mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in 1/3 cup of the chopped pecans.
  4. Spoon the batter into greased and floured muffin pans, filling three-fourths full. Sprinkle topping evenly over the batter. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from pans immediately.
