Toddler Approved ! I would go as far to say Lucy begged for them.. but she definitely liked them and ate quite a few.

I get inspired (and such a thrill) when weelicious moms send me their ideas for new recipes, though occasionally some of the suggestions can seem out there. Not too long ago, a mom sent me a recipe she had seen on a blog that was for Spinach Muffins....

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, packed

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  2. 2. Place the first 6 ingredients in a food processor and puree.
  3. 3. Place the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and combine.
