I am always looking to streamline my mornings because I get legitimately scary if I don’t eat breakfast, but mornings are busy! So… my latest go-to is muffins. I keep them in the freezer and pull a couple out each morning as needed. These green muffins are packed full of healthy ingredients – spinach, banana, applesauce, whole wheat flour and and even my toddler will eat them because we call them “monster muffins!” Somehow anything with a name like that is automatically accepted. (Except broccoli. Monster broccoli hasn’t worked yet.)

With the green color, these are fun for holidays like St. Patrick’s Day or Christmas too. I love when being festive is so easy. I topped the muffins with a simple glaze, but that is totally optional. If you’re eating clean, these muffins sans-glaze totally fit the bill!

But if you are into glaze… I recommend it. A little bit goes a long way!
