Green muffins Invasion of the Frankenmuffins

These green goodies get their sweetness from banana and their spooky color from a bowlful of spinach that kids can see but not taste. Heat the oven to 350 degrees and coat 16 muffin cups with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup each all-purpose and whole wheat flours, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon each baking soda and salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. In a blender, puree 1/4 cup canola oil, 3/4 cup milk, and 6 ounces (6 cups packed) fresh baby spinach until smooth, then blend in 1 large banana and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Fold the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. Fill each prepared muffin well two-thirds full. Bake the muffins until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 18 minutes.
