  • 2 cups raw spinach
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 large bananas
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 1.5 cups quinoa flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a 12-cup nonstick muffin pan with paper liners.
  • Using a blender (my favorite is Vitamix), blend the spinach, eggs, bananas, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and avocado oil until liquified.
  • Add the quinoa flour, oats, baking soda, and sea salt. Blend until dry ingredients are well mixed. You may need to use a spatula to scrape the sides to make sure all ingredients are properly mixed.
  • Fold in the raisins.
  • Using a spoon, scoop out the batter and fill each muffin cup 3/4 full.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Muffins are ready when you stick a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.
  • Let muffins cool for 5 to 10 minutes and enjoy!
  • Freeze half the batch and save for future use. Once frozen, consume within 3 months.


These muffins are made with simple and nutrient-rich ingredients. For one, quinoa flour is a good source of plant-based protein, great for gluten-free baking, while maple syrup is a natural sweetener that has more minerals and antioxidants than refined sugar. Plus, spinach, raisins, and bananas are all a solid source of fiber to keep you feeling full. And clean up is super easy since you only need to wash the blender!
