Spinach Muffins

Alana

Unfortunately baking ended up on the back burner for the last couple months. In January I was taking a critical care course in light of my new job in the ICU (yay!), so that and adulting took up a substantial amount of my time. During my last week of class, I was cruising through some recipes and found a neat one for spinach muffins.

I have to admit that the first time I made these muffins I forgot to add the butter, and they still turned out quite good (albeit a bit chewy). The recipe is really simple (I can’t believe how often I say that for recipes I screw up), and fast to whip up. These muffins made an awesome snack, and a quick breakfast in the morning when you’re rushed for work.

I don’t think that these muffins are quite as sweet as the original blog post implied, despite a rather large amount of honey. I’ll definitely be making them again, but I think with a little bit more cinnamon.
