Recipe: Spanikopita Muffins (first try)

Base Savory Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg
1 cup whole milk
Special Muffin Ingrediants:
1 cup frozen spinach, thawed & squeezed “dry”
6 oz Feta cheese
1 cup pine nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Fill muffin tin with cupcake wrappers.
Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in one bowl.
Stir the melted butter, egg, milk, spinach, and feta cheese together in a separate bowl.
Add the flour mixture slowly to form a batter.
Add the pine nuts and give a final stir.
Use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to fill each cupcake wrapper.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Approximately 35 minutes. (Know your own oven.)

Future note: Try adding caramelized scallions with the spinach!
