Savoury Spinach Muffins – Revamped!

This is a recipe I originally posted in 2010, but I’ve come back to make this a lot healthier. The trick is substituting Greek yogurt for half of the oil! It cuts down the calories in the muffins from 175 to 115 with way less fat. They’re just as moist, as well! The recipe originally had 1/2 cup of olive oil, and now only has 1/4 cup + 2tbsp of Greek yogurt. I think you’ll love them.

These muffins make a fantastic addition to any brunch, or a great side dish for pretty much anything. They’re incredibly versatile and I’ve also made this with zucchini, if you’re not a fan of spinach. They’re fluffy, hearty, and have a lot of flavour without a lot of work.

Coffee Banana Oat Muffins

Coffee and banana seem like an unlikely combination, but the flavors complement each other incredibly well. Simply leave out the coffee if you’re not a fan, but it adds a nice additional flavor that isn’t too strong. These muffins are simultaneously fluffy and also hearty due to the oats and make a great portable breakfast. With 265 calories for a big muffin (or 198 for a smaller one), they’re not incredibly unhealthy either. Everyone wins!

The Wonder Muffin

This is the most versatile muffin recipe ever. You can basically make these muffins any flavour you want, just by swapping out the vanilla for other extracts or essences. It could be for breakfast, it could be for dessert, you can seriously get creative. It’s moist on the inside, has a bit of crunch on the outside, and it’s hard to screw this one up. I’ll post the original recipe here, and list the successful variations I’ve tried so far.
