Spinach Oatmeal Muffins | Green Monster Muffins | Oatmeal Blender Muffins

Servings 12 muffins
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 22 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 cup Rolled oats/quick oats
  • tsp Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Baking soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 2 cup Baby Spinach/Palak packed
  • 2 Eggs, large at room temperature
  • 2 large Bananas (approx. 350 gms) chopped
  • ¼ cup Ground flax seed
  • ¼ cup Honey or to taste
  • ¼ cup Yoghurt/hung curd
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • ½ cup Fresh blueberries or nuts Mix-ins like chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Grind rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and transfer it into a mixing bowl.
  • Blend the spinach, eggs, bananas, yogurt, ground flax seed, honey, vanilla essence to a smooth puree.
  • Combine the spinach mixture with the ground oats.
  • You can add in 1/2 cup of mix-ins like chocolate chips, fresh blueberries etc or leave plain as is. I'm just going to top the muffins with some chocolate chips. Divide the batter into a 12 cup muffin tray lined with silicon liners or oil and flour the muffin mold.
  • Bake in a 375°F preheated oven for 20-22 mins until a skewer inserted comes out clean or with few crumbs. Cool in the pan for 5-10 mins, then remove from the pan and cool completely.
  • Super Healthy and Yummy spinach muffins aka "monster muffins" like our kids call it, is ready to enjoy for breakfast or as a snack.

Notes

  • To bake on the stovetop in a Kadai or Pressure cooker – Take a big pot, put a wire rack or inverted steel bowl, then cover with a lid and preheat for 5-10 mins on medium flame. Place the individual muffin mold with batter on a small tray or pan, cover the Kadai and bake on low flame for 20-25 mins until done. (if using a pressure cooker, do not use the rubber gasket and weight.)
  • You can use regular sugar, coconut sugar instead of honey. When using sugar use 1/4 cup more of yogurt to balance the liquid ingredients.
  • Adjust the sweetness to your liking.
  • If using paper liners for the muffins make sure to oil it well or spray with a nonstick spray since the batter does not contain any oil.
  • These muffins are perfect for meal prep and can be frozen for up to 2 months. To use, defrost in the refrigerator overnight.
  • I like to add blueberries instead of chocolate chips in these muffins and top it with chopped pecans.

Food for Soul

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-5,12

Joy is the last emotion you would expect when you’ve just been told that you no longer have a job, or when you’re in a hospital room and have just heard you have cancer, or when the laundry is piled high and the kids are sick and there’s little food in the house and the money is running low ….etc

Trials can make us feel despondent, helpless and out of control. Satan loves it when we let problems overwhelm us. Satan loves it when we forget to take our burdens to God in prayer, thinking that we must take care of everything by ourselves. Satan loves it when we put our energy into anger or denial. Then he can fill our minds with doubt and frustration, telling us we really don’t deserve anything better or asking us how our loving God can let all of this happen. He may even convince us to blame God for these trials. He creates a downward spiral that pulls us further and further away from God.

But according to James our trials are really sources of joy because they are signs that God loves us and wants to pull us closer to him. The writer of Hebrews (12:6-12) reminds that God disciplines those he loves for the same reason human fathers, in love, discipline their children. Trials are a good thing when they drive us to our knees to ask God for help. Our faith is strengthened as we relinquish control and put our trust wholly in God’s promise from Romans 8 that all things work together for our good.

God bless you!
