As much as I love green smoothies, I don't always want to sip on one. These green smoothie muffins are the perfect option! They're moist, fluffy and they have protein, fibre and spinach. Plus, if you have a high powered blender (such as a Vitamix) you can blend everything together in one container, meaning a lot less to clean up after too.
Almond milk: feel free to use any type of milk here (oat milk, regular milk, soy or coconut - the refrigerated kind)
Coconut oil: to keep these muffins moist
Rolled oats: use gluten-free if needed, or use oat flour
Eggs: to help bind
Banana: to sweeten naturally
Baby spinach: for added veggies, and to make these green
Maple syrup: for some sweetness
Protein powder (optional): I like adding a scoop of plant-based protein powder.
Vanilla extract: for flavor and taste.
Matcha powder (optional): for extra green colour and taste. The brand I linked to is my favourite matcha brand from Canada!
Baking powder/baking soda
White chocolate chips (optional): this was more of an afterthought, but they are delicious. You can leave them off if you'd like.
Making these blender muffins is SO easy, even easier if you do have a high powered blender as you can toss everything in there and blend. But even if you don't you can still make these spinach muffins.
If using a high powered blender (like a Vitamix), start by pouring in the wet ingredients and then the dry and blend on high. You can use the tamper to blend and combine everything.
Once it's completely smooth, pour into a lined muffin tin, top with chocolate chips (if you are using them).
Bake until cooked through and a toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 17 to 19 minutes.
Once you've let your green smoothie muffins cool, you can keep them room temperature for a day or so and then move them to a sealed container in the fridge.
To freeze: place them in a sealed ziploc bag and freeze for up to three months.
I've had my Vitamix for 10 years and I'm just as obsessed with it today as I was when I bought it. It's worth the price tag IMO if you use a blender a lot. I love it for making smoothies, soups, sauces and of course these green blender muffins.
This is the Vitamix I own and love.

Easy, portable blender muffins that are so easy to make and pack in greens and protein. They're everything you want in a smoothie, but blended into a delicious, moist muffin!
Blender: if you're not using a high powered blender, blend the oats first to make a flour. Remove and set aside in a large bowl. Then blend the almond milk, coconut oil, eggs, spinach, maple syrup and vanilla. To the bowl with the oat flour, add the remaining dry ingredients and stir. Then pour in the wet ingredients and mix well. Pour into the muffin tin and top with chocolate chips if using.
