Sweet Potato Breakfast Muffins

I absolutely love whipping up foods that can be taken on-the-go for breakfast or as a snack! We all lead busy lives and some mornings you choose an extra 20 minutes in bed over having breakfast before you leave! But why not have the best of both world and prepare yourself with a batch of nutritious muffins that you can grab and go!
