The sweet potatoes in these muffins give them a ton of sweet and savory flavor. A touch of cinnamon added to the batter is the perfect accent to the sweet potato and gives the muffins a nice warming flavor. These are best served the day they are made, when they are still a little warm from the oven. If you have leftovers, you can freeze them to enjoy later or cut in half and grill up with a little butter for an indulgrent treat.
