Spinach & Apple Muffins

Why are they green? No colouring. You’ll be amazed that there’s spinach in these bad boys. I wasn’t sure what to expect either. But these were a perfect way of using up some leftover spinach that was becoming soggier and about to go bad. Plus, why not have some iron-y green goodness for breakfast on the go? At least you’ll have a source of some veggies to start the day πŸ™‚

Adapted from these spinach muffins

Ingredients

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and line muffin pans with liners.
