Here is a super easy on-the-go muffin to make at the beginning of the week, Spinach and Banana Blender Muffins.
Similar to making a smoothie, toss all of these healthful ingredients into a blender, blend away, pour into a cupcake tin, and voila! You’ll have delicious, nutritious muffins for the week!
I love that in this Spinach and Banana Blender Muffins recipe you can use ripe bananas (and you don’t have to wait for them to be over-ripe, like traditional banana muffins). While overripe is perfectly fine to use here, sometimes we just don’t want to wait and we want delicious banana muffins in our kitchen!
I also boost these muffins by adding in Rootz Nutrition Collagen Superfood, which has 15 grams of collagen and plant protein and brain-boosting MCT’s! It’s so tasty and healthy and really makes these muffins packed with nutritious goodies. This collagen superfood product is gluten-free, dairy-free, no sugar added and 100% paleo approved and I absolutely love tossing it in smoothies and baked goods! You can use my code THEDEFINEDDISH when shopping the Rootz Nutrition website for 20% off any of their products. [affiliate link]
