Spinach Vanilla Muffins

These little green muffins are delicious, light and taste like vanilla. Going to be made very often as I love spinach, but not everyone in the household is a fan of eating it boiled.


  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 egg substitute (either 1&4 cup applesauce or 1 flax egg)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup spinach, packed (I usedfrozen)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (1/3 if like sweet)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (I use gluten-free mix)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 180 C. Place the first 6 ingredients in a food processor and puree, pour into bowl. Slowly add remaining ingredients mixing well. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 of the way. Bake for 12 minutes.

Loved them.

Note: I didn´t puree the spinach a lot to keep the fibre content, this gave small clumps of spinach but they weren’t noticeable.
