  1. Do you steam the spinach before adding it to the rest of the wet ingredients and blending it? Also would you recommend using bagged small leaf baby spinach for this or would this even work with regular fresh bunch of spinach? Thanks

    Tried them today morning. Amazing texture and taste. Subbed Maple syrup for Honey and eyeballed the Spinach as I only had frozen (put in 1 cup plus a handful).
    I am a silent member of Bento moms as well. It’s amazing how your recipes toe the line between healthy and tasty. As a full time working outside mom, incredibly helpful to have such recipes on hand!!!!

    1. Thank you for trying and leaving a positive comment ? I am so glad that you loved the recipe. Being a mom always experimenting to add some healthy factors in my recipes. If you happen to try more recipes, would love to hear your feedback. Keep cooking ?

  3. Hi Rupali, Love your presentation and recipes that were made in a healthier way. Wanted to try this recipe, but when I check baking soda link it takes me to baking powder, could you update the link. And can I switch maple syrup with organic or brown sugar. Please post more baking recipes as wanted to try them for my son who loves cakes and cupcakes.

    1. Hello Indu,
      First of all thank you so much for visiting my blog and liking it. Second yes you can substitute brown sugar in the recipe. First try substituting little more than half of the maple syrup quantity and see if muffins come out enough sweet. Lastly thank you for bringing the glitch regarding baking soda in my notice. I’ll fix it.

      Thank you ?
      Rupali

  4. Hi Rupali,

    Thank you so much Rupali for this recipe. It turned out so delicious. Today I sent it for my boy’s lunch box and they just loved it. I added organic sugar instead of maple syrup. This is going to be in my fav list hence forth??

    1. Thank you for trying this recipe and I am so glad that it worked out for you. Thank you for taking out time and writing this feedback as well. Feedbacks are really very important to me. Hope you try few other recipes as well.

      Thank you

  6. 1 Can we use all purpose flour instead of oats flour?
    2 can we use normal sugar instead of maple syrup or brown sugar?
    Reason is being that I love this recipe n give it a try.
    Plz reply me soon …

    1. Yes you can use regular flour and regular sugar in this recipe. But then the quantity of liquid needs to be adjusted as well, because all different flours absorb liquid differently. Batter should not be very thin or thick otherwise they would not rise properly. Regarding sugar, maple syrup is three times more sweeter than sugar. So the sugar quantity would also be needed some adjustments. In sort that would be a total new recipe with new ingredients quantity.

  7. This is such a great recipe. And very flexible too. I have tried with and without cocoa powder, all kinds of nuts, and it’s always a hit. Only regret is that even a double batch doesn’t last a week.. gets consumed quick!

    1. Thank you for trying this recipe Rima! I am so glad that it worked out for you. Thank you for taking out time and writing this feedback as well. Feedbacks are really very important to me and for my blog!!! Hope you try few other recipes as well.

      Thank you
