Happy Monday! I spent my Sunday cleaning & baking. Two of my favorite things πŸ™‚ Another random fun fact about me is that I’m pretty anemic, so, I’m always trying to incorporate things like Spinach into my diet, because I don’t like taking iron pills ( they bother my stomach ). So when I found a recipe for spinach banana muffins I was immediately intrigued. I added my own twist with a handful of walnuts, and added the dark chocolate for a little sweetness, but they are delicious & the perfect on the go breakfast for the busy week ahead!
