Green Muffin Madness!


Happy St. Paddy’s Day POPsters!

Are you wearing green? If not, I’ve gotcha covered…because if you’re eating green, you are good. I just came up with a super easy and ultra healthy muffin recipe for you! As you know, I always like to keep it pretty simple (who has time!?) and this recipe is no exception! Ready for it? First take a look…and imagine a sniff!
green muffin

Oh yes oh yes oh yes! That’s pistachio topped oat flour muffins! Here’s the recipe:


– 1 banana

– 1 cup oat flour (take dry oats and blend them up until they become flour)

– 1 egg

– 1 TSP nonfat plain greek yogurt

– 1 Cup spinach

– 1 tsp cinnamon

– 1/8 to 1/4 cup Stevia

– 1 TSP of crushed Pistachios


Mix it all up in a food processor or blender (except for the pistachios), then pour into a muffin tin sprayed lightly with oil. You may add fruit chunks if you’d like. I added whole blueberries. Then top with the nuts. Bake for 10-15 min at 350F. Easy!

Go food processor go!

Right before going into the oven!

While I was waiting for the muffins to bake, I poured the same batter onto my dear waffle maker and this gorgeous beauty came out. It was DELISH!!!

I was soooo excited for the muffins to finish…and when I heard the ding, I couldn’t have asked for more! My heart shaped muffin tin made them so cute 🙂

Finally after instagramming…tweeting…and facebooking…I was like OMG please let me eat this. It was so worth the wait. For those of you worried about the spinach, no worries, you can’t even taste it. All it does is give you that gorgeous green color and a ton of nutrients (it’s an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, magnesium, folate, manganese, iron, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin B2, potassium, and vitamin B6). So…eat up!

These muffins are great as a breakfast treat or an hour before working out. Will give you lots of good carb energy to go hard. I hope you give this recipe a try. I’d love to see pics and what other green concoctions you come up with! Please share with me on Instagram #blogilates!

Okie dokie.


I forgot to tell you!

Today (Sunday) I am getting my hair did! I am so excited.


I am going to go for the whole ombre look as you can see here on Mila Kunis! I will try to keep as much of my length as possible, but I have major split ends so I think at least 2 inches will be chopped off. I was fortunate to read up on some very positive Yelp reviews on hair artist Guy Tang and got in touch with him immediately! We’re gonna do a lil makeover video so you can see the transformation. I’m super excited! So watch out for that!! Will be instagramming the 6 hour process. Yes. 6 HOURS!!!! Guy and I will be BFF after this hair appointment I am sure 🙂

Alrighty guys! Happy St. Paddy’s Day! Be safe and eat green!

<3 Cassey

    I made these and found them spongy — any way i can make them a bit fluffier? Still Tasty 😀

    Can you please post the nutrition information for those of us who are counting calories?? Thanks!

    Just a tip… If you are planning on doubling the recipe make it in two batches! I just tried doubling all the ingredients and mixing it together and my poor little blender couldn’t handle it! It started to smoke and my mixture did not get blended properly.

    What can I use to substitute greek yoghurt as I’m dairy intolerant.


    1. Lynsey says:

      Try using coconut yoghurt or any non-dairy yoghurt, worked well for me!

  5. Karla says:

    can i use egg replacer instead of an egg? would the final result be just like the egg one?

  6. Johnny says:

    Can I substitute stevia with honey or brown sugar?

    1. Kayley says:

      ya i was wondering that too

  7. Marissa says:

    Just tried this… Oh my gosh delicious!!! I used two egg whites instead of one whole egg and worked perfectly 🙂 also adding the blueberries really gives them that sweetness! Thanks for sharing, will be making these again for sure!

  8. gopika says:

    hi i like u and follow ur excersises sincererly. i have changed my self a lot….. wanted to thank you for generating my interest in pilates….love u

    How many muffins do these make?

    1. Malak says:

      Hi! I made these today, and they made six regular-sized muffins. The same size that is generally used for cupcakes, since i used cupcake tins.

  10. Mary says:

    So good! I used honey instead of Stevia and walnuts instead of pistacios (b/c those were wut i had in my pantry) and added both whole blueberries and dried cranberries. Delicious!

  11. Dee says:

    what can i use intead of stevia?

    1. Joselle says:

      agave nectar or honey perhaps

    2. Malak says:

      You can also use regular sugar! I didn’t have stevia on hand, so that’s what I used and they turned out great 🙂

  12. Mel says:

    How many calories are in a muffin? (:

    1. Signe says:

      Hi Mel – if we assume that the batter makes about 6-8 muffins, it’s about 100 calories per muffin, I think. Not bad at all! 🙂

  13. Naomi says:

    Can you taste the banana, because I don’t like bananas. Or is it possible to make them without a banana? 🙂

  14. Ralph Blunk says:

    Thanks for this recipe! I introduced this to my wife and she loved it! Actually, we already made this immediately after reading your article. This is so yummy and nutritious too! Again, thanks for sharing. 🙂

  15. Devon says:

    These are sooo good! I added a pinch of natural salt to make it even sweeter (weird the way that works right??). I also substituted kale in for the spinach because i was out but it’s all good! So thank you for the recipe!

  16. Ness says:

    Hi! What can I use to substitute the stevia?

  17. Joselle says:


    I used almonds instead of pistachios as I had them in my cubby, and they do the justice just as well 🙂

    I used 1/4 of a cup of stevia, kinda on the higher range of what she posted — the stevia gives a nice after taste that complements the banana 🙂


    Sooo trick your kids 😀

    1. Chrissy says:

      I used almonds and a 1/4 cup of stevia too! hahaha.

      Did yours not come out as… pretty? Mine are like dark green and look like they belong in a horror movie hahah

    2. Kayley says:

      lol trick your kids

  18. Chrissy says:

    Anybody calculated nutrition info?

    1. Hikari says:

      You can use Spark People’s recipe calculator!

  19. Emily says:

    So delicious!! I added some protein powder about 2 oz or 6 tablespoons, i don’t know how that translates to scoops because I use the Natural Grocers protein powder since it is one of the few that didn’t have fake sugar (I’m so allergic to it) or anything else fake in it. Since my bananas are a bit small i had two in the mix, and when that seemed a bit too liquidy I added a tablespoon of flax. Also, since I’m at high altitude, I added 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. I found this really helps at high altitude, otherwise my muffins just come out like little hockey pucks.

    LOVED the pistachios on top!!!! These were the perfect little on the go snack after my workout.

    Thanks Cassey!

  20. Omg, I just made this and they were amazing!!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  21. Omg, I just made these and they were amazing!!! Thank you for sharing 🙂

    Cassey pleaseeeee help me I am pregnant and I am really really happy but I don’t wanna stop my pop pilates routine…….so…can you made some POP PRENATAL WORKOUT????



  23. I love how simple and easy your recipes are…thanks again for an awesome post! I can’t wait to try making a protein waffle instead of a pancake:) I hope you had a fun St. Patty’s day!

  24. paulina says:

    I just have to say how much I love you!

    From the beginning, I have always hated youtube exercise, BUT I have like 500 training DVD that I love and do every day. But after I stumbled onto your blog about 67,879 times in three years, I felt that I had to read it. AND now I’ve realized how damn good you are. I just did a few of your workouts (3) and burned 300 calories. And i am a big workout lover!!

    You are awesome!!

  25. aiyana says:

    I love this Cassey, thanks for always posting such great recipies!
    xo, aiyanajane

  26. Green, green! Green! I see green everywhere! Can’t wait to try this for myself.

  27. rachel says:

    Cassey can you please stock more “beast mode” shorts on your ogorgeous website please!!!!

    1. blogilates says:

      yes they are coming!

  28. krissy says:

    I made these last night after I saw you post it, since I had all the ingredients on hand. I kinda like them! They tasted more spinach-y than banana-y, probably because I used (a lot of) frozen spinach.

    Can’t wait to see your new hairstyle!

  29. Tiffany Tang says:

    That looks delicious, Cassey! I just started blogging and since you’re my biggest inspiration for staying fit and eating right, I’ll make this the first blog to comment on. Keep posting delicious and healthy recipes! And I think the ombre will look awesome on you 🙂

  30. therese says:

    Wow! I want to make these! How long will they keep for?

  31. Caroline says:

    If I were to substitute honey for the stevia, how much would I use?

  32. Gillian says:

    These were sooooo yummy! Made them a couple hours ago. I actually used CARROTS instead of spinach! I know, it sounds weird, but I didn’t have any spinach on hand, so I just chopped up some carrots and threw them in the food processor. Thanks for the recipe!

  33. Thanks for sharing the recipe, it looks delicious!

  34. Carli says:

    Almost sounds like a smoothie in a muffin! I always have a banana with my spinach to keep from tasting it.

    Love the hair! Not sure that I have the patience to go through a six hour process though. 🙂

  35. Sally says:

    I can’t decide which looks better, the muffins or the waffle! Thanks for sharing the muffin recipe. I love healthy muffins for a quick breakfast or snack.

  36. Lori- O says:

    Omg those look amazing, I think I will try them out this week. Thank you for posting such fun healthy recipes all the time!

  43. Jenn says:

  44. Georgina says:

    just made the muffins….i used 1/4 cup regular brown sugar and added a tbsp applesauce for extra moisture and sweetness. They are really filling and delicious! thanks for this great recipe! also, i have a question: do you still cook with miracle noodles? I ordered some a while back and once i opened the package I could not get over that fishy smell…anyway, thanks for your great contribution to the blogosphere!

    1. blogilates says:

      Oh! You must wash them first!! Rinse them thoroughly under running water. Then cook 🙂

  45. Galina says:

    Luck with your new hairstyle, Cassey 😉 You’ve inspired me to change my hair, too. I’ve just googled for many Mila’s photos and it turned out that she has a haircut I was looking for!! Many thanks for the tip!! :))

  46. Fion says:

    Hi, can I replace oat flour with almond flour?
    Is it of the same portion too? Thanks!

  47. Jen says:
