These muffins break the mold of traditional baking by incorporating spinach – we all can use more vegetables in our diet. Spinach and oats, both celebrated superfoods, are rich in iron, fiber, vitamins A, C, and K, and many other essential nutrients, making these muffins a nutrition powerhouse.

But the magic doesn’t stop there. These muffins are thoughtfully designed to be allergen-friendly, ensuring that they can be enjoyed by almost everyone, regardless of dietary restrictions. Whether it’s a busy morning rush or a leisurely afternoon snack, these spinach muffins offer a perfect blend of convenience, health, and flavor.

As you bite into these soft, moist muffins, you’re not just enjoying a delicious snack; you’re also partaking in a inclusive, health-conscious journey.

Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup oat milk or milk or other milk alternatives
  • 3 cups spinach leaves packed
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 large bananas ripe
  • 1/2 cup applesauce unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips dark

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or line a muffin tin.
  • Place oats in a blender and blend until they achieve a flour-like texture. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl.
  • In the same blender, add oat milk, spinach, ripe bananas, honey, unsweetened applesauce, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. Blend until the mixture is completely pureed.
  • Sift and combine all the dry ingredients (flour, blended oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt) in another medium bowl.
  • Gently fold the spinach mixture from the blender into the bowl of dry ingredients until just combined. Avoid over-mixing.
  • Fill each well of the muffin tin with approximately 3/4 cup of batter. Fold in chocolate chips if using.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean, and the top of the muffins springs back when touched.
