How to Make Chocolate Veggie Muffins:

Ingredients:

  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour (whole wheat or all-purpose)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 big handfuls of spinach
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Chocolate chips (because a touch of chocolate is essential!)

Tools:

  • Muffin tin
  • Muffin liners (optional)
  • Food processor or blender

Step 1: Blend Start by adding all the ingredients to your blender or food processor. Blend until the spinach is finely chopped.

Step 2: Chocolate Bliss Add a handful of chocolate chips to the batter. These chips will melt as the muffins bake, creating pockets of gooey chocolate.

Step 3: Bake to Perfection Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease it. Fill each muffin cup with the batter, leaving a little space at the top for the muffins to rise. Bake for about 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 4: Cool and Share Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack.

Substitutions:

  • Flour: Feel free to substitute the flour with whole wheat flour or a gluten-free alternative if desired.
  • Eggs: You can substitute flax eggs.

Storage:

  • After these muffins have cooled completely, you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. If you’re planning for longer storage, pop them into the refrigerator for up to a week, or freeze them in a zip lock bag for up to three months. To enjoy, simply warm them up in the microwave or oven.

    Can I omit the baking soda/powder in the recipe? Will it still turn out fine? And may I know if I can substitute the banana with sugar. If yes, how much should I put? Thank you
