  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbs. butter (half a stick), 56.5 grams
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. In a bowl, mix first 6 ingredients until well combined (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, chopped spinach, and cheese).
  3. In another bowl, mix milk, egg, and melted butter
  4. Mix cheese mixture with milk mixture (bowl 1 + bowl 2) until well combined
  5. Grease a muffin tin or use cupcake liners. Fill muffin tin about 3/4 of the way (enough to leave for rising)

Recipe Notes

1 half stick of butter = 4 tbs. = 56.5 grams

If using mini muffin tins, this will only take 8-10 minutes to make
