Green Monster Muffin

I am a big fan of muffins.

Not only are they delicious and satisfying, they are an extremely convenient snack you can grab on the run…which I am quickly learning is a necessity these days.

But a green muffin?! Now that sounds interesting…

This recipe is the muffin version of one of my all time favorite smoothies. Which means, yes…these muffins are made with spinach! No worries though, other than the bright green color of these lovely little muffins-the spinach is completely hidden by the sweet taste of bananas and cinnamon, mmm!

Not only are these muffins funky and fun, they are pretty healthy too! If you are looking for a creative way to sneak in your veggies, this one’s for you!
