Sweet Spinach Muffins II

Alana

It’s been a while since I initially tried this recipe for spinach muffins, so I decided to give them another shot!

As I mentioned in my last post, these muffins make a great snack or quick breakfast in the morning. I used a jumbo muffin pan, so one muffin was the perfect amount of food.

I found the first time that they didn’t rise very much, so I actually filled my muffin pans to just below the brim rather than the standard 2/3 full. Perfect! I also made a couple minor changes to the ingredients. I’m not sure how much of a difference it actually made considering I made a few mistakes last time around, but I think they turned out really well 🙂
