We love muffins in my house, especially ones we can make in a blender! These green monster blender muffins are packed with GREEN spinach for added nutrition.
And as a registered dietitian, I love when I can include nutritious super foods like eggs, omega-3-rich seeds, leafy greens, whole grains and fruit, all into one delicious snack. Bonus: when my kids can do it for me! Here’s the cutest video (if I do say so myself!) of my daughter and I making these muffins.
As parents, we all know that green vegetables can be a tough sell – most kids go through a phase (or several) where they won’t even touch them. This is normal, but it’s still important to continue re-introducing them in fun and creative ways. Just like in these muffins!
You see, I don’t “sneak” them in, I actually get my kids to put them in. But it shows them that green veggies aren’t so yucky after all, and can be used in lots of yummy ways.
These muffins pack a nutrition punch and include eggs, milk, bananas, oats, chia seeds, and spinach. They’re perfect as an on-the-go breakfast or a snack.
