Healthy chocolate muffins!? Is this a thing? Absolutely. I feel like I’ve been killing this muffin meal prep game. I love having these as a snack or before a workout.

I was also a day too late for National Spinach Day (who knew such a thing existed?), but nevertheless, this was worth the wait. The baby spinach adds zero flavor and one hundred percent nutrients to this not-so-green machine. Toss in bananas, almond milk, some almond butter and now you’ve got yourself a healthy Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie.
