Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup pureed spinach (see notes)
  • ½ cup unsweetened Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup unrefined coconut oil melted
  • 2 tablespoon whole milk (plus more if needed)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • assorted ingredients to decorate see notes

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F (175C) and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray of choice or butter (I use fractionated coconut oil)
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, pureed spinach, coconut oil, Greek yogurt and vanilla
  • In a medium bowl combine the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well until a batter forms. It is quite a thick batter but if it seems too thick add more milk as needed 1 tablespoon at a time
  • Pour the batter into the muffin tin so that each one is about ⅔ full
  • Bake for 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the tin and let cool completely on a cooling rack before removing from the muffin tin and serving
  • Store in an airtight container or freeze for later

To Decorate

  • Use your imagination to decorate. I use a combination of mashed up wheat cereals, googly eyes, currants, pumpkin seeds for teeth and melted dark chocolate.

Notes

To puree the spinach just pop raw spinach into a high speed blender and blend until smooth. You may need to add some water to get it to come together. Add 1 tablespoon at a time until you get a smooth mixture.
Use whatever you have in the cupboard to decorate. I like to use googly eyes, currants, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, crushed wheat cereal and melted dark chocolate to stick them all on.
