Like most parents, I am always on the look out for new ways to incorporate veggies into Lyra's diet. For the most part she is pretty good about eating whatever I put in front of her...but OF COURSE I worry that she isn't getting enough of those important vitamins and minerals we all know we are supposed to be getting by the bushel full.
I found this awesome recipe for Spinach Muffins while searching Pinterest for Toddler snack ideas. They are basically banana muffins with a good hit of spinach. They don't actually taste like spinach, so it is no surprise that Lyra has been gobbling them up.
I substituted 1cup of frozen, thawed spinach (that I had squeezed all the water out of) for the fresh spinach, and chopped it finely instead of wizzing everything in a blender since I don't have one and Lyra is terrified of the hand held one.
The recipe made 12 mini muffins and 6 Mummy sized ones. We put a few aside to devour within the next couple days and froze the rest.
Give them a go...you really can't go wrong!
