Cinnamon Sweet Potato Muffins with Dark Chocolate Chips and a Cinnamon Topping

It was a really busy week….filled with both some very difficult things and some very wonderful things. Things which kept me out of the kitchen and away from the craft room.

But in the midst of what happened to be a very good day today, though full from 7:30 am until 9:00 pm tonight, I found an hour to bake something for Fiesta Friday! I literally had just enough time to get these muffins done before I needed to walk out the door again. This girl just couldn’t miss out on the party!

When my friend and I walked in the door tonight, I loved the smell that greeted our noses. It smelled like Fall. It smelled like cinnamon. It smelled like sweet potatoes.

I had no idea how this recipe was going to work out…as usual, I was making it up as I went along. 🙂 Let’s just say this: my sweet potato-hating-hubby really, really liked them. My friend really liked them. And I really liked them!

Will you like them too?! I sure hope so, because I am bringing plenty to the party! 🙂

  2. Scrumptious looking muffins, Lori! They sing autumn to me…great seasonal flavors and I can almost imagine the wonderful aroma greeting you upon entering the house!

    I’m sorry to read your family is dealing with troubling times. Hoping your faith keeps you strong…please call on me if you need anything. ❤


  3. I’m so glad you didn’t miss the party! These muffins look delicious. I’m so intrigued at the idea of using potatoes (or zucchinis, etc.) in muffins and cupcakes. Very cool! Happy FF, and have a wonderful weekend. 🙂
