Happy (almost) St. Patrick’s Day!! Kaylin’s daycare class is having a party tomorrow and asked each of the parents to bring in an item. I signed up for cupcakes and decided to hunt for a healthier alternative. I found this recipe and decided to give it a go. I used slightly less spinach (~3 cups vs.. 4), and the results are delicious! We all (Josh, Kaylin & I) give this recipe 2 thumbs up:
- 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce (244g)
- 3 cups of spinach
- 1 box of store bought White Cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Classic White Cake Mix but you could also use a more natural cake mix)
- Sprinkles (optional)
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray.
Puree the applesauce and spinach in either a magic bullet or food processor (make sure all of the spinach is completely ground up).
Mix the spinach and applesauce mixture into the boxed cake mix using a hand or stand mixer. Fill the prepared muffin tin with the batter. Top with sprinkles (Kaylin did this part). Bake for ~15 minutes.
