Popeye Spinach Muffins
[Original post here]
1 C all purpose flour
1 C whole wheat flour
3/4 C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (I only had cinnamon sugar, so I used that)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C canola oil
3/4 C milk
1 (6 oz) bag fresh baby spinach
1/2 C mashed banana (about 2 bananas)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 and line two 12-muffin cups with liners. (I did't have these, I just sprayed them with Pam).
Whisk together dry ingredients in large bowl: flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
In blender (I used my magic bullet), place oil, milk and spinach. Blend on high for about 30 seconds or until completely pureed. Add banana and vanilla, blend on low just to mix.
Pour green mixture into dry mixture and fold together with rubber spatula until completely combined.
Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full and bake 18-20 minutes.
