  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 16 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners; set aside. Prick sweet potato several times with a fork and place onto a baking sheet.
  2. Bake the sweet potato in the preheated oven until easily pierced with a fork, about 40 minutes. When the potato is cool enough to handle, peel and mash.
  3. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, the 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Stir in the vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla, honey, yogurt, and mashed sweet potato, just until all ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin cups.
  5. Blend together the oatmeal, brown sugar, almonds, and the remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a food processor or blender. Sprinkle topping over unbaked muffins.
  6. Bake muffins in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 12 to 15 minutes.

These were delicious. I would give them five stars, except I thought that a cup of honey is overkill (I cut it down to 1/2 cup), the timing was off (I had to bake for about 30 minutes), and they...

Sweet mama potato! Healthy, with spice quantities are just low enough not to overwhelm the naturally mild and pleasant flavor of the sweet potato. This is the critical point. Five stars, if not ...

I was so tempted to add some all purpose white flour...I thought for sure 100% whole wheat flour would be to heavy and earthy. I was wrong. This turned out wonderfully and you can feel pretty ...

These are delicious.. sooo moist! I used whole wheat pastry flour, which I prefer over regular. I used plain yogurt instead of vanilla. Next time I will cut the topping to about 1/3 the amoun...
