Spinach Muffins

My girls are pretty good eaters, but when it comes to dark, leafy greens, they do not like to eat them raw.  I saw this recipe on Weelicious, and gave it a try.  The ingredients were simple, they took no time to make and my kids gobbled them up.

Spinach + muffins + satisfied kids = sane & happy mom   

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup fresh spinach, packed
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Place the first 6 ingredients in a food processor and puree.
3. Place the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and combine.
4. Pour the spinach puree in a large mixing bowl.
5. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet until combined.
6. Scoop batter into a greased muffin tin, filling each cup 2/3 of the way.
7. Bake for 15 minutes.

FYI - Adults like these too :)
