  • 18 standard cupcake liners
  • 2 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, unsalted
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 large banana
  • 6 ounce raw baby spinach (by weight)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 F, and line a muffin pan with paper liners (or use silicone muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray).
  • Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Heat the butter until just melted. Using a blender or food processor, blend the raw spinach, banana, honey, milk, egg, vanilla, and melted butter until completely pureed.
  • Pour the puree into the dry ingredient bowl, and fold together gently until just combined. (Do not over-mix.)
  • Spoon the batter into the muffin pan, and bake for 18-22 minutes, or until the muffins are firm to the touch on top, but not quite browning.
  • Cool most or all of the way before serving.
