This is my recreation of the delicious muffins, voted best in Toronto, from a bakery in Kensington Market in Toronto. They’re vegan, made with spelt, and absolutely delicious!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
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.
Whisk together spelt flour, oats, baking soda, and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir together bananas, oil, and sugar in a separate bowl.
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.
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.

The quality of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as clear bread.
To made this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it yesterday , then clear it off the next day.
