  1. Can you leave out the hemp hearts or substitute with something else? I have all the other ingredients on hand…

    1. Try substituting about 1 cup of applesauce for the banana. I haven’t tried that substitution – but 1 cup is a decent guess. Let me know how they turn out!

  2. In your description of the muffins you say applesauce is one of the ingredients but do not see it in the recipe itself. Is there applesauce in it? Thanks, can’t wait to try them.

  3. These came out too sticky in the middle , even after putting back in the oven , the bananas maybe ?

  4. I made these today not sure what I did wrong. I cooked the sweet potatoes in the microwave. Anyway my muffins did not turn out. It is like they have to much moisture. Can you give me an idea of what I did wrong. They did nor rise.

  5. Mine tasted great, but didn’t rise at all. The only thing I left out was maple syrup (not allowed it right now). Any ideas why they didn’t rise?

    1. The 1/2 cup of flax seeds has 15.5 grams of protein and 1 egg has 6 grams of protein, so I think you’re probably good from a protein standpoint with the flax!

  6. They look amazing! Is there any other flour you’d use instead of oat flour please?
    Thank you x

  7. What am I missing.. I’ve made these twice recipe twice exactly as written and both times they completely sank in and didn’t bake. They smell delicious but what a waste of ingredients to not turn out. Why is this happening?

    1. I love chia seeds in muffins – but beware that they will “suck up” some moisture. This is a dense, moist, almost fudgy type muffin anyway – so you could try about 1/2 a cup of chia seeds to replace the hemp hearts. Let me know how it works!

  8. I followed this recipe and I was disappointed with results. They didn’t seem to ever get cooked even though they were in oven for about 30 min.
    Took them out finally but they didn’t rise very much. I did add a heaping tsp of baking powder as in recipe. Any suggestions?

  9. Hello,

    I tried this recipe and although they tasted very good, they didn’t look like a muffin or resemble the picture whatsoever. They actually were sunken in the middle. I used almond flour instead of oat flour, and I left out the oats. Perhaps there could be some modifications for high altitude? I’m about a mile high for altitude and would love to try these again in the hopes they would be more like a muffin. Do you have any suggestions for me please? Thank you!

  10. I am finding that they aren’t baking through(?) and they aren’t rising like the picture(?) the batter is delicious though! But just hoping they aren’t all soggy in the center. I use a toothpick to check and have doubled the baking time.

  11. Do you bake these for a total of 15 minutes …. or 30 minutes?
    I’m not clear from the description in the last step! Thanks!

  12. Anyone tried this with canned sweet potatoes/frozen sweet potato puree to make it come together more quickly? Sub for sunflower butter? PB? Tahini? Just curious. Interested in making this for an office brunch as a healthier alternative. Thanks all!
