- 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup Vega Protein & Greens powder
- 1 Tbsp ground flax
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 container Silk Vanilla Yogurt Alternative
- 1 cup mashed bananas
- 1 cup Frozen Spinach
- 1/2 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk
- 1 bag vegan chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350. Prep your frozen spinach by measuring out 1 cup and then putting it into a food processor or blender. Mine was still somewhat frozen but you can thaw it completely if you have time. Blend or process down so that it’s close to a puree or very small pieces, it ends up being around 1/2 cup once processed. Set aside.
- In a large bowl mix or sift your dry ingredients together- whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, protein powder, cocoa powder & flax. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer cream your coconut oil and sugar together. Once combined add in the vanilla, yogurt, spinach & bananas, after those are mixed in add in the dry ingredients alternately with the coconut milk. Once completely combined add in the chocolate chips and fold in until they are evenly dispersed throughout the batter.
- Prepare your muffin tray with coconut oil spray or other alternative or use paper liners. Divide the batter between 12 muffin wells, filling 3/4 full. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, If you don’t use all the batter for 12 muffins you may want to reduce your cooking time so as to not dry out the muffins. Test the muffins with a toothpick at 20 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy for breakfast or snacks!
