Sweet potatoes muffins… yes please!!!

Having friends for the weekend is always fun as it allows me to be a bit more creative in the kitchen. However my son and guest did not feel my excitement on the new muffins that I was going to prepare for them.
Me: I am going to make chocolate chip sweet potatoes muffins
Son: Sweet potatoes?? Really!! I don’t think that will taste that good, potatoes muffins!!!
Me: You must expand your food repertoire and I would like for you to try them. I know once you bite into one, you will love them.
Friend: I do not like chocolate chip muffins.
Me: You do not like chocolate chip muffins?
Son: my mom can’t have them either as she gave up chocolate for lent, so you are in luck.
Me: I guess it will be sweet potatoes muffins.
Son and Friend: Oh!!
I have not made this very old recipe, which it was handed me down by someone ions ago, was delicious with the chocolate chips, and now without them, I was in unknown territory and had no idea what to expect.  Not too sweet, light and just delicious was the final verdict. we enjoyed them also with butter and jam.
We hope you will enjoy them as well as much as we did.
