Green Protein “Monster” Muffins

Raise your hand if you are a parent, always trying to “sneak” healthy ingredients into your kids food! It seems like it’s a constant battle trying to find snacks with nutritional value that children actually like. I used to make oat protein muffins for Bowen when he was just over a year old, and he LOVED them (I can’t actually remember why I stopped making them!) So I amended that recipe, and viola!

The best part about these muffins is that you literally throw everything into a blender, mix, and then pour into a muffin tin. Healthy ingredients, super simple process.. perfect for those of us with a million things going on!

Added Bonus- these muffins look like Frankenstein.. just in time for Halloween! These would be ideal for class Halloween parties- gluten free, dairy free and nut free for those with allergies!

Heres What you Need:

  • 2 Ripe Bananas
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 cups oats ( I used organic, old fashioned )
  • 1 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 cups packed fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Mini Chocolate Chips ( I used Organic semi- sweet)

Method:

  1. Preheat over to 400 F
  2. Blend all ingredients in blender (except Chocolate chips!)
  3. Grease muffin tin with coconut oil (or oil of choice)
  4. Pour blende mixture into greased tin
  5. Top with Chocolate chips ( Bowen loves to help with this part! If kids are involved they are much more likely to eat it!)
  6. Bake for 10-12 Minutes
  7. These also freeze wonderfully if you make a big batch!
