Tim here again. I'll be posting all this week. I don't have a lot to say about this one. The only substitute is that I replaced apple sauce for the yogurt. It turned out great. The muffins are great as leftovers and didn't dry out in the microwave when you reheated them. I think the chunks of sweet potatoes keeps them moist.

It isn't uncommon for Tiffany and I to have breakfast for lunch or dinner so we had these through out the week. If fact I'm not sure if we had them once in the morning.
