Magic Green Muffins

Magic Green Muffins

These muffins are moist, delicious, completely fruit sweetened, and very green! What a fun and easy way for the whole family to pack in some extra veggies. Each muffin has a solid ā…“ cup of spinach, and you canā€™t even taste it!

If your muffins are coming out dense, try checking your baking powder freshness. Combine 1 teaspoon baking powder with ā…“ cup hot water. The mixture should bubble vigorously. We figured this out the hard way, after baking a batch of muffins and wondering why they turned out so dense. A quick trip to the store for some fresh baking powder remedied the situation. Happy green muffin making!



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Use silicone muffin cups, or lightly oil a 12-muffin tin, or 2 loaf pans.
  3. Blend the rolled oats and coconut shreds in a blender, or use already prepared flour.
  4. Mix the flours, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  5. Place the remaining ingredients (except the spinach) in the blender and blend to a smooth consistency. Then add the spinach and blend until smooth.
  6. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ones.
  7. Bake 30-35 minutes (muffins) or 45-50 minutes (breads), or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Yields: 12 muffins
