How To Make Spinach Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  2. In a blender, puree the bananas, strawberries, spinach, greek yogurt, honey and peanut butter until smooth. You don’t want any chunks. Once blended pour the mixture into a bowl.
  3. Use a spatula to stir in the egg.
  4. Gradually add the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until just combined.
  5. Place muffin liners in a muffin pan. Scoop the batter into the pan, filling about three quarters full.

  7. Allow muffins to cool before removing them from the pan. Store in an airtight container.

Some of you might be skeptical, but don’t let the green color deter you. You can’t really taste the spinach, but lucky for you, you can know that it’s in there and healthy for you.

Plus if you eat muffins like I do (muffin queen right here!) you’ll feel great knowing that these are good for you! I even surprised myself and there are ZERO chocolate chips in this recipe.

But I wouldn’t put it pass me to add in some chocolate chips if I felt like I needed it :)

How to make spinach muffins gluten free

I’ve made these muffins with both regular and gluten free flour with AWESOME results on multiple occasions. I recommend King Arthur’s Gluten Free Measure for Measure Flour. Use it as a one for one substitute for regular flour.

How to freeze spinach muffins

Allow the muffins to cool completely first. I like to wrap two muffins together (the bottoms of the muffins touching) in plastic wrap, then place all the wrapped bundles in a ziplock bag.
