I have a thing for sweet potatoes, I’d devour it anyway I can, so does my family <— happy mama.

I always have a stash of these in freezer, great as a snack in school lunch box. 

The amazing part of this particular recipe – It does’t require cooked sweet potatoes. So, it is ready to go when your craving strikes – a quick sweet potato muffin indeed. 

No planning needed or hoping for some leftover mashed sweet potatoes to make these. Just peel and grate a fresh sweet potato and you are off to the races. 

Simply whisk all dry ingredients. Whisk wet ingredients and then combine both. Stir in grated sweet potatoes. Transfer to the baking pan, sprinkle pecans and bake. Easy as that.
