Sweet potato & Cinnamon Muffins

I have to say it: I love muffins. Starting the day with a good, fluffy, sweet and healthy muffin always makes me feel better. It is also a versatile sweet since it adapts easily to the season simply by changing a few ingredients. These muffins, for example, are perfect for fall since sweet potato is seasonal at this time, and the combination with cinnamon is absolutely perfect.

I hope you like these muffins as much I do.
