Sweet Potato Oatmeal Muffins

These delicious, moist muffins came from the Practical Produce Cookbook. I played around with some of the ingredients(mainly because I was too lazy to go down in the basement to get the other bag of all-purpose flour) substituting some whole wheat flour and quick oats for some of the all-purpose flour it called for, and using light brown sugar in place of half of the white sugar. This is a kid-pleaser, with or without the topping. The original recipe states it makes 12 regular-sized muffins. I got 36 mini muffins from it.
