Instructions


Preheat the oven to 400°F. 

Grease each cup of a standard 12-cup muffin tin, and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. 

Set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix together the yogurt, egg, honey, coconut oil, and sweet potato puree. 

Beat until smooth.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet mixture. 

Stir them together, being careful not to over-stir. 

Gently fold in the chopped apples.

In a small bowl, stir together the packed brown sugar, pecan pieces, and melted butter to make the streusel.

Fill the prepared muffin tin cups 2/3 full. 

Sprinkle each muffin with a heaping teaspoon of streusel topping. 

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until muffins are golden and spring back when touched. 

Cool on a wire rack for several minutes, and serve warm.
