I’ve been wanting to create a sweet muffin recipe with spinach snuck in forever. The results… these are delicious and green! How stinkin’ adorable are they?! When I whipped up a batch, I ate them with a protein shake for breakfast otherwise they make a great take along item for any meal you’re eating on the go or outside of your home.
3 cups baby spinach
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup coconut oil, room temp
2/3 cup agave syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 very ripe banana, mashed
2 cups unbleached flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
Process the spinach and applesauce in a large blender until smooth.
In a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the spinach mixture, coconut oil, agave, vanilla, eggs and banana until smooth.
Add in the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until well blended.
Divide mixture between 6 large cupcake liners, and top with chocolate chips.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool on cooling rack.
