Help! Too many knots in my engineered wood flooring

I recently purchased engineered wood for my new house’s flooring. The sample looked clean without much knots, but the real ones had too many knots, and they are also very dark… I was aiming for a minimal/ scandinavian look, but the result was so disappointing. Does anyone know if there are ways to lighten the dark knots in engineered wood? Mine is white oak. Is doing a demo and getting new floors the only way to fix this problem? Thank you!
