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

Makes 8 muffins

  • 1 cup flour (whole wheat, spelt, AP)
  • 5 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (or can substitute with more applesauce)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup spinach, packed


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

Whisk dry ingredients in large bowl. Place the milk, applesauce, oil, vanilla, and spinach in a blender, and blend until pureed. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients, and stir until just combined.


Fill muffin cups, and bake for about 18-20 minutes (use a toothpick in the centre to test!). Enjoy πŸ™‚
