Fall is in the air! After a summer of record heat and humidity, the cooler temperature is a welcome change. The green leaves are starting to turn gold, and cinnamon flavored treats are front and center at markets and coffee shops.
Fall is also the peak season for one of the world’s most versatile vegetables, the sweet potato. Unlike pumpkin, sweet potato is naturally sweet, and requires little added sugar when baking. One of my family’s favorite ways to eat this super veggie is in muffins.
These comforting muffins are soft, buttery, and perfumed with the spicy flavors of fall. Kick off this autumn harvest with a cozy sweater, a hot cup of chai tea, and a Cinnamon Sweet Potato Muffin. Happy fall and Bon Appétit!
