  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.

Soooo good. I bake this for my bed and breakfast. I use a whole sweet potato and add a pinch of salt.

This was a very delicious, moist & satisfying muffin...vegan or not! I did use a whole sweet potato, instead of a half. My husband, who is not vegan, loved these!
