Sweet Potato Date Muffins – delicious vegan muffins made with spelt

This is my recreation of the delicious muffins, voted best in Toronto, from a bakery in Kensington Market called the Urban Herbivore. The muffins are vegan, made with spelt, and absolutely delicious!

Inspired by the Urban Herbivore in Toronto

This is a fantastic recipe, however, it’s not yet sugar-free. I’ll be adapting it sometime soon. This is a recipep that I sought out before I went completely sugar-free. It’s vegan, made with spelt, and absolutely delicious!

You can also make a great low calorie version by replacing the oil with apple sauce.

1 cup of rolled oats
1.5 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 very ripe bananas, mashed

.33 cup chopped dates

Directions
1. Combine spelt, oats, baking soda, cinnamon.
2. In a separate bowl, blend bananas, sunflower oil, sugar.

4. Fold in dates and sweet potato.
