Spinach Muffins

Jessica Braider
When I first started making these a couple of years ago, my then-5-year-old asked if he could have them as his birthday cake because he loved them so much! I have used this recipe in kids cooking classes with many a spinach-hater and have yet to find one who didn’t love these.
