Paleo Green Smoothie Muffins
Whether they are your out-of-the-box way to get veggies in at breakfast, your go-to healthy after school snack or your sneaky way to make sure your kiddos have greens in their lunch boxes, Paleo Green Smoothie Muffins are going to become staple recipe in your house!
"Mom, lets cook some muffins for breakfast," my 5 year old daughter said to me one night, dangerously close to bedtime and clearly an adorable stalling technique. My daughter knows I am a sucker when it comes to baking with her....and she was using that against me.
Well played, kid. Stalling or not, this would make breakfast in the morning way easier, so I was game.
"Okay, but something quick and that you know that you like," I said, getting the muffin tin out and tying my apron on.
"Ummmm...how about Oatmeal Green Smoothie Muffins!?" Alice said, with all the excitement and enthusiasm a young kid can muster at 7:30pm.
My Oatmeal Green Smoothie Muffins have been a household favorite since the first time I took them out of the oven and a TNN reader favorite since they hit the blog! And my daughter isn't the only kiddo who loves and adores them. You guys are always sending me *adorable* pictures of your kids gobbling them down. It truly warms my heart that they help you guys get veggies into your kiddos....and I live for those green smoothie muffin pictures.
"Sorry kid, but we are out of oatmeal. But how about we try making them without oatmeal? Maybe we can make them Paleo?" I said, hoping I wasn't ruining my easy-peasy breakfast plan.
While you guys love the original recipe, there have also been many of you asking for a Paleo version of the green smoothie muffins. My lack of oatmeal was the perfect oppertunity to experiment and to hopefully get Green Smoothie Muffins into all the little (and big) mouths!
Besides tweaking the recipe to make it grain-free, I also added a punch of Paleovalley Supergreens to the mix! Since it is back to school season, they are the perfect thing to add whenever possible to help boost you and your little ones' immune system against those gnarly school germs! Plus, Paleovalley Supergreens are jam packed with oodles of other superfoods (like Organic Spirulina and Organic Chlorella to name a couple) that I probably couldn't get into my family otherwise (they are adventurous eaters, but they have their limits). It also has digestive enzymes to help keep my family's bellies working the way nature intended!
