A delicious, healthful vegan muffin that is crisp and golden on top, dense on and hearty on the inside, and all around addictive. The recipe is a recreation of my favourite muffins from a terrific vegan cafe in Toronto. Other tasty flavour combinations include: pear & walnut, apple & cranberries, or whatever else may tickle your fancy.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Wet Ingredients

  • 4 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup sunflower oil
  • Add to the wet ingredients

  • 34 cup unbleached cane sugar
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • Dry Ingredients

  • 3 cups spelt flour
  • 1 34 cups oats
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups cooked sweet potatoes, cubed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Combine the wet ingredients (mashed bananas and sunflower oil) in a bowl. Add the cane sugar and chopped dates. Set aside.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients.
  4. Bake at 375 for about 18 or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. It's normal for these to appear crispy and golden on top. That does not mean they are overcooked. The crispy top is part of what makes them so delicious!
