~ Family Fun magazine - October 2014

1 c. flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 c. canola oil
3/4 c. milk
6 oz. (about 6 c.) fresh spinach
large banana
2 t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray muffin tins

In a large bowl, whisk two flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. In a blender, puree oil, milk, and spinach until smooth. Add banana and vanilla to puree and blend thoroughly. Pour liquid mixture into dry mixture and stir until combined. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Makes 16-18 muffins.

Notes: These are sweet, have a mild banana flavor, and have a fun color because of the spinach, but no spinach flavor. All the Ws like them.

Kami - Aren't you guys egg-free? If so, then this recipe worked out even better for you than you planned. :)
