We bake these Sweet Potato Muffins with an Oatmeal Crumble Top anytime there is an extra sweet potato after dinner. They taste AMAZING! My kids love them for breakfast and in their lunchboxes!
SWEET POTATO MUFFINS WITH A YUMMY TOPPING!
If you have read my blog more than… well, ever. You know that I really hate to throw anything away. I attempt to channel my grandmother. She never threw anything away that she could make something useful from. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I appreciated that about her.
So there I was standing in my kitchen looking at my leftover sweet potato from these Stuffed Sweet Potatoes – wondering, what do I do with these? It was about the same amount of stuff that I would have put in banana muffins – if only these sweet potatoes were bananas. If it were fall, I could make pumpkin muffins – if only these sweet potatoes were pumpkins. Hmmm… Muffins. Sweet potatoes are sweet like bananas and orange like pumpkins. Good enough for me!
THIS OATMEAL CRUMB TOP IS THE BOMB!
To top these muffins off (literally), they received my favorite oatmeal crumble topping. Usually, I reserve it for rustic apple pie or these individual Whole Grain Apple Crumbles but these muffins are special! So pull out your leftover sweet potato (or bake some fresh – these muffins are worth it). And turn something ordinary into something mouth-watering and so fabulous!
Just a note, I used a LOT of cinnamon and nutmeg in these. I almost panicked thinking I had overdone it but they turned out really good. Also, the batter is thicker and denser than banana bread batter but it cooked up light and soft. YUM! GO MAKE THESE RIGHT NOW!!
Looking for the Stuffed Sweet Potato recipe? This is one of our favorite family meals. Just a quick tip, try cooking the sweet potatoes in the slow cooker while you are out or in the pressure cooker to save time!
If you love this Oatmeal Crumble Top as much as I do, try this Whole Grain Apple Crumble for dessert. It is so simple to put together – you might even want to surpirse your family on a weeknight!
