by Nicole Gulotta for Thrive Market

Start the day with our vegan and gluten-free power muffins—a little bit sweet, a little bit savory, and the perfect way to get some extra greens into your diet. Every bite stays moist thanks to apple sauce and banana, salted caramel protein powder (so delish!) adds indulgence, and a handful of spinach ups the nutrition factor.

Yield: 12 muffins
Active Time:

Ingredients

2 cups spinach
1 ripe banana
1 cup apple sauce
1 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup coconut oil, melted

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a muffin tin with liners. Pulse spinach a few times in a food processor, then add banana, apple sauce, almond milk, brown sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla; process until well blended.

Add almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt in a large bowl; whisk. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined. Portion batter into prepared muffin tin.
