Banana Bread Green Veggie Muffins (GF + VG)

 

Hmmm, green muffins? Don’t know what to think of it? Well think again, these muffins are gooooood! Packed with veggies and still has the sweet taste of banana bread. You can eat these for breakfast, lunch or take them as a snack!

I wanted to back some healthy snacks for myself, but didn’t knew what. So I went looking in my fridge and pantry, I still had some spinach left and really ripe bananas. And thought why not combine these two, so I went for it. And after I ate breakfast I had some leftover sweet potato, so I threw that in as well. And I must say; it came out pretty good.
