Date Sweet Potato Muffins (Vegan)

Frances made these muffins for our 9th anniversary party at the studio. They were so good we were all asking her for the recipe. I finally got around to making them yesterday. They are delicious and nutritious! It makes a big batch of 20 muffins... since I only have one muffin tray, I cut the recipe in half.
delicious & nutritious

Date Sweet Potato Muffins

Wet Ingredients:

4 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup sunflower oil

Add to the wet ingredients: 

3/4 cup unbleached cane sugar
1 cup chopped dates

Dry Ingredients: 

3 cups spelt flour (or regular flour)
1 3/4 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!
