Green Muffins


Yippy, (jumping up and down) my Weelicious Lunches cookbook finally arrived!!!!!!!

That means I am headed down the road to becoming a slave to my kitchen, which I’m totally not complaining, and Holden’s class will be treated with scrumdiddlyumptious goodies!!!!!

Calling all Spinach haters, I have a challenge for you!!!!!!

I dare you, in fact I double dog dare you to make, bake and eat these Spinach Cake Muffins.


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup packed fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbl spoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

I dare you to…

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and use paper liners or greased mini muffin pan.
  2. Place the applesauce, egg, vanilla, spinach, sugar, and oil in a food processor and puree until smooth. If you don’t have a food processor I’m sure a blender will work out fine.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Pour the spinach puree into the flour mixture and stir until combined. Scoop the batter into the muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 full.
  5. Bake for 12 mins, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. transfer to wire rack to cool.

Now eat one and thank me later because you couldn’t taste the spinach, could ya?.
