Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Oat Muffin

These muffins are so moist and yummy they won't last long. If your trying to find ways to sneak in healthy foods for your kids, this is your muffin. Just tell them it's pumpkin muffins. It worked for my nephew. He didn't know a thing. You can use pumpkin if you don't have sweet potato or butternut squash.

1 cup pureed sweet potato
1/2 cup cane sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup softened butter
1 egg
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp homemade vanilla
