Green “Monster” Muffins

| 0 comments

I am constantly looking for different lunch options for Finnegan. He loves peas, so I try to incorporate them into most of the green items I bake for him. This is the newest addition to our healthy muffin stash. Finn likes them, Isla is questionable about them and my nephew didn’t like them at all. He doesn’t like peas. So you win some and lose some, but at least Finnegan has something new to take for lunches.

These pictures above have been frozen, but I wanted to include a picture so we could see how green these muffins really are.

Green Monster Muffins

2 cups fresh spinach
2 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
2 apples, cored not peeled
1/2 cup cooked broccoli (optional)
3 cups flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder

1 cup frozen peas

In a blender, mix spinach, eggs, sugar, and 2 apples. Puree until smooth. Pour  into a mixing bowl and add dry ingredients. Mix until smooth. Add in frozen peas and mix well. Prepare muffin tins. I use silicone muffin cups, but you can just grease the  muffin tins as well. The mixture is very thick and sticky, almost like a dough rather than a batter. Evenly split between 24 muffin cups and bake at 350°F for 15 – 20 minutes. Check them at 15 minutes but back longer if need be.
