Green Monster Muffins

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe yet!  I made these muffins back in March for St. Patrick’s Day.  I wanted green food and I will not use any artificial coloring so of course I used spinach to get a nice natural green color!  Don’t be scared by these green muffins, they taste very sweet!
