A delicious and healthy muffin recipe using spinach and feta cheese
Author:
Recipe type: Muffins
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 cup milk (I used low fat almond milk)
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp agave syrup
  • 1¾ cups flour
  • ¼ cup ground flax meal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups chopped spinach (as finely chopped as you can)
  • 1 cup crumbled feta (or cut into small cubes)
  • Icing:
  • Laughing cow cheese or cream cheese
  • Dried chives
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix all wet ingredients together in a bowl (applesauce, milk, eggs, agave syrup).
  3. In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients (baking powder, baking soda, flour, flax, and salt)
  4. Mix the dry into the wet and stir until coated. Mix in spinach and feta and stir until well mixed in. Do not overmix.
  5. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups (I used the silicone ones, but paper lined ones are fine too) and pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes. The magic time for my gas oven was 22 minutes, so check at about 18 minutes to see how far along they are. Once you can stick a cake tester in and have it come out clean, they are done!
