Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins

I had a couple sweet potatoes lying around and was intrigued by a recipe I saw that replaced pumpkin with sweet potato.  So if you like these, but don't have canned pumpkin, give this recipe for some very moist muffins a try.

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into large chunks
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup apple sauce
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 to 2 cups chocolate chips

Steam the sweet potatoes until tender.  Mash until smooth.

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar, sweet potatoes, milk, and oil until smooth.  Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients, and stir just until combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full.  Bake 11 minutes for mini-muffins or 16-20 minutes for regular muffins at 350 degrees.
