I didn't know if these would be good or not. I mean spinach? In a muffin? Eh, let's give it a try. After all, I had all the ingredients on hand. I'm very glad I did, they are moist and wonderful.
Recipe was found at The Chic Life and my only modification was on the kind of sugar and flour used. You should check out her blog. She's super cute and posts some killer healthy recipes and tips.
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup dehydrated cane juice
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup baby spinach, run through food processor
3 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Heat oven to 350. Whisk your dry ingredients together (flour through baking soda).
Whisk egg and sugar together and proceed to whisk in remaining wet ingredients (including your chopped spinach).
Pour dry ingredients into wet and mix. Add walnuts if desired. Pour into prepared muffin cups (I got 10 out of this batter) and bake for about 15 minutes or to desired doneness.
Cool (or not) and eat! Yum! These will make a great pre- or post-workout power breakfast.
