Invasion of the Frankenmufins!  These green goodies get their sweetness from the banana and their spooky color from spinach (that your kids can see but not taste). This is a great recipe to make for a kids parties.  Enjoy!  

Makes: 16 muffins

Olive oil spray (I use a misto olive oil sprayer)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup milk
6 ounces (6 cups packed) fresh baby spinach
1 large banana
2 tsp vanilla

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees

2. Spray 16 muffin cups with olive oil spray.  

3. In a large bowl whisk together whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt & cinnamon

4. In a blender puree canola oil, milk, spinach until smooth, then blend in banana and     vanilla.

5. Fold the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients.  Fill each prepared muffin two-thirds full. 

6. Bake the muffins until the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 16 minutes.

1.  Make a big batch a head and freeze some for your next party.  Or you can take them out one a time to enjoy!
