Hey Gang~

This makes a great snack to grab-n-go.  I’ve kept them in the freezer and took out a few at a time.

Recipe comes from Weelicious:  http://weelicious.com/2012/01/04/spinach-cake-muffins/

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 flax egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, packed
