Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Grease a muffin tin or line with paper muffin cases.
In a large bowl, mix eggs, sugar, sweet potato, oil and water. Combine flour, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients along with the nuts. Fold gently until just moistened. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done. Do not overbake. Cool on wire rack.
Above, rebeccakb mentions she wouldn't try olive oil in this recipe. I wanted to respond by saying that I use olive oil in all of my muffin recipes and it definitely works! I brought these muffins to colleagues and they loved them; certainly no one could 'tell' there was olive oil in there. All I'm saying is, don't be afraid to use olive oil in your baking - it's healthy and it works! - 07 Feb 2009
