These are nutritious and healthy indulgences, if you crave for desserts and want to have them guilt free. Due to the addition of spinach and whole wheat they are rich in dietary fibers and iron and also make you fill full.  You can use them as breakfast muffins with any beverage or pack them as snacks.I thought my kid won’t touch it, knowing about spinach but to my surprise she had two of them and asked for more to pack in her tiffin-box . For kids I added a dark chocolate piece at the center which took the dessert to a different level altogether. I tried this dish for the first time , and so was not sure it will come out so well . Now planning to improvise it and make many more variations and take videos and click more pictures. Do let me know in comments if you try this dish.
