Green Monster Smoothie Muffins

These green monster smoothie muffins are pretty fun.

How often do you eat green muffins? Exactly.. it’s not very normal.

But I want you to feel really good about eating these because their full of spinach, strawberries and bananas!

They are called smoothie muffins because the basis of a lot of smoothies consist of bananas, a couple handfuls of spinach and some strawberries/other berries.

We just added in some egg and flour and viola – SMOOTHIE muffins!

Plus the base of the muffins are made in a blender, just like a smoothie!

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 Green Monster Smoothie Muffins

The recipe is simple to make – 10 ingredients: bananas, spinach, strawberries, all purpose flour, honey, an egg, greek yogurt, baking soda, salt and peanut butter.

You’ll blend the bananas, strawberries, spinach, greek yogurt, honey and peanut butter in a blender until everything is smooth, you don’t want chunks!

Then you’ll add in the egg, flour, baking soda and salt. These smoothie muffins bake up fast and I bet they will disappear fast too!

  3. OMG I have to make these for my picky eater son ASAP! Thanks!

  4. Very, very interesting! My kids love muffins and I am thinking that this would be a good way to get some extra “green stuff” in them. Not to mention, good for me too! Thanks!

  5. What a fun idea Beth! I don’t mind green muffins, it’s one of my favorite colors. ;)

  6. I never would have thought o try this 0 brilliant Beth

  7. I love this idea! I can’t always force myself to drink the green smoothies, let alone get my kids to drink them, but I bet I could get them to eat these! Thanks for sharing via Creative Princess Brandi’s link party.

  8. Very creative Beth!! I would like to give these a try. To make them healthier…I would use butter or good coconut oil instead of canola oil. Did you know that canola oil is pretty toxic? Most people have no idea.
    Again…I LOVE your creativity in the kitchen.

    Thanks for linking up at Project Inspire{d}!!

  9. What an awesome idea! Can’t wait to try them! Stopping by via SITS!

  18. I made these using whole wheat flour and maple syrup for the sugar. I also didn’t have any spinach, so I used kale. They are delicious! Thanks so much!

    • That sounds delicious Michelle, and a great fall take on the recipe! I appreciate you sharing how you made it your own with me!

  19. These have so much nutrition!  Great recipe!

  20. Can protein powder be added?

    • I would think so! Great idea! I’d probably do less then 2 tbsp to see how it affects the batter.

  21. Can you suggest a substitute for the peanut butter? I have a nut allergy. Thanks!

  22. thanks beth i like the idea i think i will give it a try but i do not have beanut butter can i not use it?

    • Hi Hoda, I believe omitting the peanut butter would be fine, but I haven’t tried it myself.

  23. Delicious! My little foodie loved helping to make these and eating them too! 

  24. These look great, do you use vanilla Greek yogurt  and I don’t have mini muffin pans, can I use regular size muffin pans?
