Why not green! Or as my son asked when he tried these muffins, “Why?” 😂 “They are really good, mom, but why add spinach?”
He’s probably right but my response is “a wonderful boost of good-for-you nutrients and tastes great, right?!” Ok, well…I have my own opinion but I was impressed with the simplicity and wholesome nutrition theses little muffins provide.
I started by making a green smoothie. Spinach, banana, almond milk and monk fruit for extra sweeteness.
Blend together 1 cup almond milk, 2 cups spinach, 1 banana and 1 tablespoon monk fruit sweetener.
Next, I added 1 cup Kodiak protein pancake mix along with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring plus (not shown) 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips.
Blend together dry ingredients with the smoothie mixture. Place mixture into a greased mini muffins tin. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
This recipe makes about 30 mini muffins.
