Liz's Spinach Muffins

I am so so excited to share the first recipe sent in by another RasTafari Sistren!
Liz Johnson lives in Oregon with her Kingman and two princes, and she has been a supporter of RastaWifeLine and all my works for a while now. 
Liz grows a beautiful Ital Kitchen Garden when the summer comes around, she is always an inspiration to I with her green thumb. I love to see her photos of her harvests!

Here is a picture of one of her daily garden hauls!

I would love to make a salad with all this goodness!

Today Liz has shared her Spinach Muffins with InI. You can try it for breakfast or for a snack for the family! I have put some alternatives in brackets which I would use

Spinach Muffins:

You will need:

2 cups Whole wheat flour or flour of choice (Spelt)
1/3-1/2 cup raw sugar or sweetener of choice (try coconut sugar or 1/2 cup agave nectar)
2 tsp baking powder (1 tbsp flax meal/powder + 3 tbsp warm water,  mix and set aside)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 coconut oil
3/4 unsweetened almond or hemp milk
6-8 oz. fresh baby spinach
1/2 mashed banana
2 tsp vanilla


Whisk dry ingredients and set aside.
In a blender- blend oil, milk, & spinach. Then add mashed bananas and vanilla and blend until just mixed.
Pour spinach mixture over dry ingredients and fold in until completely combined.
Oil 2-3 muffin pans and fill cups 3/4 full.
Bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes.
Makes ~16-18 muffins.

Happy Baking Ital People!
Ila and Liz
