I have a new green shirt and even painted my nails green. Its a different look from the usual red and do not plan to get used to it. Im not a fan of the color green but its fun to celebrate St. Patricks Day.
As the day approaches, I'll be adding more to the list.
Last night I decided to make these green spinach banana muffins. They are so good! I guess they are healthy since they include a whole bag of spinach and a couple bananas in the mix.
These muffins were delicious with the texture of a cupcake. The main flavor that tickled my tastebuds was the cinnamon. I really thought they would taste more like banana.
The spinach? You would never know its in there. You can not taste the spinach at all.
Know what that means? That means you can trick your kids into eating this healthy veggie.
Really! Do not tell them. Just call them monster muffins, frog cakes, or Leprechaun buns and enjoy watching the kiddos gobble them up.

They got the thumbs up from my husband and I wish my daughter was here to try them.
It was hard not to eat more than one.
I will be having a green muffin for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee. Yum.
