Spinach Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Local track cyclist Sarah Orban shared her Spinach Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe with us.


  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup palm sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a muffin tin.
  2. Combine dry ingredients (oats, almond meal, ground flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda,cinnamon). Set aside.
  3. Add almond milk, bananas and coconut oil to the blender followed by 2 cups of spinach. Blend together until smooth. Pour into separate bowl and beat in vanilla, eggs and coconut sugar into the spinach mixture.
  4. Pour wet ingredients to dry mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Fill muffin tin with ¼ cup of batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

These muffins are perfect to tuck in you bag for after long training rides. Another delicious post-ride fuelling option are the Whitewater Granola bars.

Thank you Sarah!
