Hawaii Mom Blog: Spinach Banana Muffins

Spinach Banana Muffins

A friend of mine recently posted a picture of spinach muffins on Instagram, and she sent me the recipe from Green Forks so I could give it a try too.

I made both mini muffins and regular muffins with slight adaptations to the recipe, and they turned out delicious!

I could taste the spinach, but my kids could not.  My friend called them "Hulk" muffins, so I called them that too since my kids love all things Marvel.  They loved the muffins!

Although I slipped a couple times saying they were "spinach muffins," I don't dare tell the kids that spinach is inside the Hulk muffins.

They taste like bananas, are really delicious, and they make a great afterschool snack!

Spinach Banana Muffins (recipe slightly adapted from Green Forks)

  • 2 c flour
  • ¾ c sugar
  • 2 t baking powder
  • ½ t baking soda
  • 1½ t ground cinnamon
  • ½ t salt
  • ¼ c vegetable oil
  • ¾ c milk (I used rice milk)
  • 1 c fresh spinach
  • 3 bananas 
  • 2 t pure vanilla extract
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. 
  • In a blender, combine oil, milk, spinach, bananas, and vanilla until pureed.
  • Pour puréed mixture into dry mixture and combine.
  • Fill prepared muffin cups about ⅔ full and bake 18-20 minutes (9-11 minutes for mini muffins).
