Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with these sweet spinach muffins. Thanks to the ground flaxseeds and almond flour, they are packed with gut-healthy fiber, satiating protein, and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.

Dry ingredients:

¾ cup oat flour

¾ cup teff flour

½ cup almond meal

¼ cup ground flax seeds

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

Wet ingredients:

¾ almond or dairy free milk

1/3 cup honey or maple syrup

1 large banana

1 5- or 6- ounce bag of fresh baby spinach

1/3 cup avocado oil, coconut oil (melted), or butter (melted)

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

¾ cup chocolate chips (optional)


Preheat oven to 350F.  Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Blend the wet ingredients in a blender or food processor until pureed. Pour the puree into the dry ingredients and fold together gently until just combined. Add chocolate chips if desired and mix well. Spoon the batter into a greased muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Store in fridge.
