In looking for a little something to give mom’s at our playgroup St. Patrick’s Day party, I decided a little sweetness would be perfect.
Again, I love Pinterest for the inspiration. I found some cute cupcakes out there. Like…..
Isn’t that a visual beauty?
Yeah, I thought so too!
Spinach in a cupcake? My little non-vegetable picky eating 2 year-old will never….
Well, I was wrong. He loves them.
Now admittedly I first tried her recipe, but it didn’t work for me here at altitude (Colorado) and was just a little too dense with a uncooked middle.
So then I decided to try her inspiration’s recipe. You can find the recipe here at Green Lite Bites.
It is so easy a boxed cake mix, applesauce, and spinach. Knowing that I can alter boxed mixes well enough for my altitude was a good bet.
So here you have it.
A whole 4 cups of raw baby spinach that tastes like applesauce!
Now I have healthy, green, tasty, cupcakes.
Let’s make it cute!
A few rainbow candies from the dollar spot at Target. A bag of Cinnamon-Bun Marshmallows and some vanilla frosting is all you need.
A little bag, shredded green packing and some ribbon and you have a cute little Pot of Gold sweetness to give.
