Sweet Potato Corn Muffins

This is a quick muffin recipe that takes traditional corn muffins and packs in some extra fiber, vitamin A and protein. The natural sweetness and moisture of the sweet potato allows you to cut down on the added sugar and oil. Serve alongside your favorite soup, stew or chili or as a quick grab-and-go breakfast.
