To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, I made green chocolate chip muffins! The green color comes from spinach, so it’s a tasty way to eat your vegetables in the form of a baked good! I brought them to my musical rehearsal (it was for the show Heathers) to share and they were a hit!
Here’s the recipe:
2 cups flour
½ tbsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
⅓ cup maple syrup
5 oz spinach
18 oz milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
In a blender or food processor, add the wet ingredients. Blend until smooth.
Add the blended wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well.
Fold in a cup of chocolate chips, and pour into a lightly greased muffin tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes, let cool, and enjoy!
P.S. In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, here's a throwback photo to when I was in the historic South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade when I was Miss Massachusetts Collegiate America!
