Spinach muffins

I am always trying to find new ways to sneak vegetables in my foods without tasting them. I was so excited to try Popeye muffins from the green fork   My son loves everything so I decided to give these spinach muffins a try. 
They are amazing and you wouldn't even know they have a whole bag of spinach. I'm very much like a kid the color is more enticing to me. 

My body is excited with the extra nutrients.
