Are your kids picky eaters? Or do you not have time to eat a balanced breakfast? Then these spinach muffins are perfect!

Admittedly I’ve been running on little sleep and shoved in a donut or 4 just for some energy.

Since having Jack I stopped taking health coaching clients and have been devoting all my time to being a mom, but I can’t stop baking shit. Which is good for you guys and my husband but I am the one home all day scarfing things down. SO! Enter these healthy muffins into your life (and my life) and eat guilt free.

I also love that the color of the muffins are green which makes a fun Halloween theme or Christmas or St. Patty’s Day!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. Mix the vegan chia seed egg by adding the 1 TBSP of chia seeds to 3 TBSP of water in a separate dish and set aside for 20 minutes. This should form a gel like substance. DO NOT do this step if you are using a real egg.

  3. Add all of the wet ingredients into a blender. Blend on high until smooth and combined like a smoothie.

  4. In a separate bowl mix all of the dry ingredients together.

  5. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix/fold together until just combined. DO not over mix.

  6. Line your cupcake tin with papers and pour in the mix about ¾ of the way full in each liner.

  7. Bake for 16-18 minutes.
