Yield:
1 dozen muffins

Ingredients

  • ½ sweet potato, peeled and diced

  • 1 ½ cups spelt flour

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed

  • ½ cup sunflower seed oil

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • cup chopped pitted dates

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

  2. Place diced sweet potato into a small pan with enough water to cover, bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain sweet potato; set aside to cool.

  3. Whisk together spelt flour, oats, baking soda, and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir together bananas, oil, and sugar in a separate bowl.

  4. Stir banana mixture into spelt mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened; fold in dates and sweet potato. Divide mixture evenly into 12 muffin cups.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 18 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes; remove to cool completely on a wire rack.

Cook's Note:

You can replace the sweet potato and dates with other delicious combinations. Pear and walnut are also a particularly delicious combo.
