Sneaky Green Muffins

March 16, 2018

 

In class, we talk about the importance of dark, leafy greens in an expecting momma's diet. Here's a delicious way to sneak some of those in!

 

These muffins have so many ingredients to feel good about: a banana, honey instead of loads of refined sugar, whole wheat flour, and a WHOLE BAG of spinach. And you guys, this recipe was also approved by our two toddlers! 

 

I am a spinach eater, but I'll admit I was not sure about using spinach in baked goods. Turns out the spinach makes these muffins anything but dry - instead, spongey, cakey deliciousness!
