Popeye had the right idea with all that spinach he ate. It’s full of vitamins, iron, and even protein. You don’t have to eat spinach right out of a can to get those benefits though. Make these Popeye Muffins for breakfast instead and start your day ready to tackle all the bad guys. Or at least your to do list.

These naturally colored muffins are basically a green, protein smoothie in a muffin liner. They get their intense color from a few handfuls of spinach. Don’t worry though, they don’t taste like a salad. They’re sweetened naturally with bananas and maple syrup. You’ll also be able to build muscles like Popeyes’, since some of the flour has been replaced with Brown Rice Protein Powder. The protein and carbs from the bananas make them a great option as a pre or post workout snack.

Forget your overpriced green juice at the store and make these your new to-to portable breakfast. These muffins make a great meal prep option. They’re easy to make, since the blender does most of the work for you. They also freeze well and can be reheated in the microwave with a damp paper towel.


With all the goodness these green muffins pack, even Popeye would ditch his can of spinach to have these muffins for breakfast.
