Healthier Green Cupcakes

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:




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.
