A green microwave muffin? Are you intrigued? We were! We tried it and turns out that it is a delicious and simple way to add veggies to your kids’ diets.

1 egg
2 TB milk (or coconut milk)
1 TB vanilla
1 C spinach
1 banana
1/3 C frozen peaches (strawberries work great too!)

2 TB whole wheat flour or coconut flour
2 TB coconut finely shredded
1 TB chia seeds or ground flax
2 TB oats
1/2 tsp baking soda

Easy Peasy Directions:
1. Blend egg, milk, vanilla, spinach, banana, and frozen fruit in a blender. Make sure it’s all nice and smooth.

2. Next mix your dry ingredients in a bowl. Once combined, add your wet ingredients on top and mix.

3. Then take a larger-sized mug (or two small mugs) and spray the inside with cooking spray & pour your batter right in.

4. Place mug in microwave for 4-5 minutes.

5. It’s done! Plop on a plate and make it pretty with some tahini or peanut butter, coconut flakes, and fresh berries…or just scarf it down as is, as fast as you can!
