These gluten-free & dairy-free muffins are a great way to sneak some greens in! They’re made with clean ingredients and are naturally sweetened.

I would totally make these muffins for myself even if I didn’t have kids – they’re SO good! Also any way I can get extra greens into my diet is a plus. HOWEVER, my kids LOVEEE these muffins! They can’t taste the spinach at all and I’m a happy mama knowing that they’re getting tons of spinach in their diet when they eat these.

I don’t love giving my kids sugar, so these muffins are naturally sweetened with just banana and a little honey. These muffins are also gluten-free as I used certified gluten-free oat flour. This recipe is also dairy-free.

I love making a batch of these muffins on Sunday to have for the week ahead. I put one in Emma’s lunchbox every day and give one to Jordyn as a snack. I even take these on-the-go at times for a healthy snack for me and the kids.

I can’t wait for you guys to make these! xo
