Spinach & Cheese Toddler Muffins


This is a super quick and easy recipe, and a great way to get spinach into little mouths. Sometimes I'll take some of the spinach and blend it in a food processor before adding it to the mix, as it turns these muffins green! 

You can also use frozen spinach for this recipe – we chop and freeze spinach to keep for the off seasons, so we can add it to our recipes all-year round.
