My kids love to eat bread type stuff for breakfast. Toast, bagels, muffins, waffles, croissants, you name it. They’ll eat fruit but my littlest guy will barely eat any veggies. I wanted to make something that they would love but that would still be packed with goodness. So I came up with these spinach banana berry muffins. They are super easy to make and the kids love them.

We call them superhero muffins actually, and they keep asking “Can I have another superhero muffin?”

Genius! They think that superheroes eat these muffins because they’re the color of the Hulk. Now they all want to eat them. 

I really wanted to make these with whole wheat flour and add chia seeds, but I think that would have been past the point of return for my kids. They’d think these were way too healthy and never eat them. For some strange reason kids and healthy food can be a little bit of a challenge. So sometimes you’ve got to just improvise and sneak in a little bit of healthiness. You can’t even taste the spinach in these muffins, so they’ll never know (enter evil laugh).

The green from the spinach is so vibrant and makes them really fun looking. You’ll definitely be eating your colors with these muffins.

My little guys are so eager to help me in the kitchen. Good thing I had them around for the above photo. I needed an extra set of hands and Pacey was happy to help. I seriously cannot stop staring at that muffin. Such beautiful colors.
