Recipe : Sweet Potato Muffins

I used up the last bit of leftover sweet potato from the holidays to make these muffins.  Everything else was already in my pantry.  They are SO good!!!  (And the kids are happier to have muffins than another meal of turkey & sweet potato. LOL)

Sweet Potato Muffins

1 1/2 cups sweet mashed potato
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 tablespoons molasses
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup milk
semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin tin.

Combine mashed sweet potatoes, brown sugar, oil and molasses in a large bowl. Mix well to combine. Add eggs and mix well.  Add baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice and mix.  Add flour alternately with milk until combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into muffin tins to about 3/4 full. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick, when inserted into the middle of the muffins, comes out clean.  Makes roughly 18 regular-sized muffins.
