Don’t let the green hue of these muffins fool you.... they are delicious! By blending leafy greens into these muffins, you can incorporate more vegetables, especially if you have picky kids at home! We eat these for breakfast, as a snack and even for dessert. These muffins are dairy free and can easily be vegan. Simply omit the egg and use the flaxseed meal already in the recipe, add 3 tbsp water and let sit for 10 minutes)
