Spinach “Green” Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (about one single serving cup)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, packed
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Processes wet ingredients in a blender: applesauce, egg, vanilla, spinach, sugar and oil.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl: flour baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add the wet spinach mixture to the dry ingredients.
  5. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet until combined. You can use a spoon or spatula. The mixture will be very dense! On occasion, if it seems too dense, I’ll add a splash of milk to loosen it up, but the mixture should resemble a thick cookie dough. It won’t pour easily.
  6. Scoop the batter into greased muffin tins. This recipe will make 8-9 large muffins or 24 mini-muffins.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes for mini-muffins or 17 minutes for regular-sized muffins.
  8. Let them cool on a rack and enjoy!
