Our kids are just getting off of the Valentine’s Day chocolate high as St. Patrick’s Day is approaching! I have played around with this recipe for a few years now & this is the way I can sneak (a lot) of veggies into a muffin that is also fun for St.Pat’s & can be made in advance & frozen to make mornings easier! My kids call them leprechaun muffins…I call them genius muffins for the simple fact that they have an entire bag (6oz.) of organic spinach in them!

The cute shamrock topping is an edible wafer that makes them even more festive! (linked here)
