“Hulk” Muffins

Written by COA Nutrition Team On May 22, 2020

Got a picky eater? These kid-favorite muffins are 100% whole wheat, refined-sugar-free, and packed with fresh spinach!

INGREDIENTS

  • 18 standard cupcake liners
  • 2 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter, unsalted
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 large banana
  • 6-ounce raw baby spinach (by weight)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 ° F, and line a muffin pan with paper liners (or use silicone muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray).
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Heat the butter until just melted. Using a blender or food processor, blend the raw spinach, banana, honey, milk, egg, vanilla, and melted butter until completely pureed.
  4. Pour the puree into the dry ingredient bowl, and fold together gently until just combined. (Do not over-mix.)
  5. Spoon the batter into the muffin pan, and bake for 18-22 minutes, or until the muffins are firm to the touch on top, but not quite browning.
  6. Cool most or all of the way before serving.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Prep dinner in the morning

For easy weeknights, dinner plans should begin in the morning. Jean said that the best way to save money at the grocery story is to only go once a week. This means that some of your week's protein — raw chicken or beef — will be in the freezer. Start off your day by taking frozen meat from the freezer to the fridge for defrosting./p>
