Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Muffins

I have a family member with special dietary needs, so I came up with these gluten-free sweet potato muffins that we could all enjoy. These are just as good as any traditional recipe, maybe better! If you don't have sweet potato on hand, canned pumpkin may be used instead. —Kallee Krong-Mccreery, Escondido, California

    Mildly sweet with a warm and cozy flavor from the sweet potatoes and spices. These make a great coffee treat on the go!
