Sweet Potato Banana Muffins

As you may know most of my baking inspiration is from what is in my fridge that needs to be used before it goes bad. I had sweet potato left over from the cookies and buns. So I began searching for a muffin recipe know I love muffins! I found these and I am very happy with them. Mike gave them to some guests just as they had come out of the oven, I was very nervous about that because I like to try them first. They are very nice and have a subtle flavour that actually gets better when they are cold.

  1. These sound so wonderfully healthy. I love sweet potatoes but never knew they could be used in a banana muffin. I want to try these.

  2. I love baking with was is in the fridge also. Great muffin.

  3. I have some leftover pumpkin in the fridge now. I'll have to try using it in muffins. Good idea!
