Green Muffins!

And we aren't talking about earth day, people!  I've always heard this and that about green smoothies - but i just saw this spinach in the fridge and .. ta-da!

In person, this looked kind of a horrible color
Green Muffins!

Here they are next to the regular muffins, they don't even look that different - I added about 1 cup of packed fresh spinach to my muffin recipe.  Added the spinach to the wet ingredients and used an immersion blender to puree it all together - this also seemed to help make the muffins light and fluffy, because of the extra well beaten egg (i guess?)  No other changes in baking time or anything. 

I've been adding spinach to a lot of things lately,  green scrambled eggs are a big hit with the kids! (and of course i forgot to take a picture!! they look awesome!, same technique with the blender! )
