Units Scale
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (organic, virgin unrefined)
  • 2 1/3 cups baby spinach
  • 2 bananas (ripe)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 2 TBSP pitted dates
  • 3/4 cup whole milk (organic, or non-dairy unsweetened milk of choice))
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups oats (rolled or steel-cut or old-fashioned)
  • 1 TBSP baking powder


  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (177ºC) and line a muffin tin with liners. Brush the liners with coconut oil or use silicone cups to prevent the muffins from sticking.
  2. In your blender, combine the baby spinach, bananas, protein powder, dates, and milk. Blend until smooth, then add the eggs, oats, and baking powder. Blend again until a batter is formed.
  3. Scoop the muffin batter into the cups. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
  4. Let cool and enjoy!
