Superfood Breakfast Muffins

Green Breakfast Muffins

2 1/2 cups baby spinach
1/2 cup all natural applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract (or butter extract, either works)
1 1/2 tsp cardamom
3 tb sweetener (I used Truvia)
1/4 cup liquid sweetener (agave nectar or maple syrup)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
Flax seeds

Combine spinach, applesauce, extract, cardamom, sweetener, and liquid sweetener in food processor or blender. Pulse until spinach is completely smooth, and no pieces remain.

In bowl, sift flour, bran, oatmeal, soda, and powder until even. Stir into wet ingredients until moist throughout. Fill muffins tins 2/3 full, and top with flax seeds.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, until centers are cooked and tops are just browned. Let cool completely. Makes about 4 muffins.
