    Love this video! Chloe is a great helper and so cute. She's a great co-host! I'll definitely be trying these with my little guy.

      Chloe is so cute! My 2.5 year old son also loves helping around the kitchen. There's no way I could accomplish anything in the kitchen if I didn't let him play with some vegetables, mix stuff, etc.

      I'm waiting for my new muffin tin to arrive to try this recipe :)

    These are delicious! Definitely not too sweet and they don't taste like spinach for picky eaters. For an extra treat I put a little bit of strawberry cream cheese on top- yummmm!

    I made these last week, and my 18 month old daughter gobbles them up! I used my mini muffin pans, and the muffins are the perfect size for little hands. I was thrilled that she enjoyed them so much, since I have a tough time getting her to eat her greens. I will definitely be making these frequently :)

    I've made these twice so far. My 18 month old twins and my 38 year old \"boy\" love 'em. Oh, and I do too! I just made another batch yesterday and added blueberries. Thanks for the great recipe! This will be a weekly staple in our house.

    Delicious! My 3 year old loves(and I)! Also, put 1/2 a banana for a little more flavor.

    Hi,
    I made these and they are great my 22 month old is eating them up but I think they are pretty dry do you have any suggestions to cut down the dryness.
    thanks.

      You could add another tbsp of oil and they will still come out great. I try to keep them as healthy and low fat as possible :)

      I have added a bit more applesauce and/or a bit of milk to combat the dryness. I just add until the batter looks right

      A blender will work great!

    These tasted great and my 3 year old has eaten them up. Normally it's hard to get her to eat leafy greens.

    Fantastic way to \"sneak\" in some good stuff! I know several adult \"kids\" who could benefit from this recipe! :)

    I might have missed it, but at what temperature and for how long do you bake these?

    Thanks!

    Could you use almond flour and coconut oil as substitutes to make them gluten free??

    leave a comment

    • Stefani

      I have made these with coconut oil and they are great. I even added some shredded coconut to play on the flavor it leaves. I make all of Catherine's muffins gluten free with the following gluten free mix: In a really big bowl measure 100 grams each of the following flours: almond, millet, oat, sorghum, buckwheat, quinoa, arrowroot, tapioca, teff and sweet rice flour. Then mix them all together. Then measure cup for cup of the original recipe and remember to sift it. This GF mix works awesome for all the cookies and muffins on the weelicious site. Also I do not use the gums and the recipes always turn out wonderful. If the batter appears a bit dry, just add a touch of liquid until it looks right. (I made the pumpkin cupcakes this weekend with the frosting and it looked dry so I added a touch of milk and they were perfect.)

    These look so delicious !
    My kid has an egg allergy, with what other ingredient could I replace the large egg in this recipe ?

    leave a comment

    • Catherine

      The best egg replacement I have heard of is 1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed plus 3 Tbsps Water per Egg. The flax seed sometimes slightly changes the texture and/or color of the finished product, but usually it works like a charm and people can't tell the difference! Hope it works and happy experimenting!

    Made these today for St.Patrick's day and my two year old gobbled them up. The best part was how fast and effortless they were to make. Love!
