Spinach Muffin Recipe

  • Ingredients to make 15 muffins:
    3/4 cup of pureed spinach
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup of oil
    1/2 cup of applesauce
    2 cups of flour
    3/4 cup of sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon of salt

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. This muffin recipe will make 15 yummy spinach muffins.

    You will want to start with pureed spinach. I puree mine ahead of time and then freeze it in an ice cube tray. Then when I need the spinach I just thaw it out and add it to a recipe.

  • To puree spinach, steam spinach for a few minutes and then transfer to a Ninja or an old school blender. We bought a Ninja blender since we made these muffins and it just makes pureeing veggies a breeze. A traditional blender will take a longer to puree the spinach. Once you have your pureed spinach, use 3/4 cups of it in a blender and add the vanilla, eggs, oil and applesauce. Basically, throw all your wet ingredients into the blender and blend until mixed together.

  • In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients - flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

    Mix the wet and dry ingredients until a batter forms and pour into muffin tins so each muffin is 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  • When I first made these muffins I was worried about how they would taste. Would they have a spinach flavor? Would my kids eat them or be freaked out by the green color? All my worries were erased when I tasted them. They are moist and delicious and you can't taste the spinach at all. My veggie averse kids loved them and request them all the time.

  • These are so good fresh out of the oven with a little butter. They also freeze well. The next time your child turns up their nose at the veggies you offer, try this easy spinach muffin recipe.
