Mom’s Secret Spinach Brownies is a delicious way to sneak spinach into even the pickiest kids’ favorite sweet treat!

Spinach Brownies | Recipe Nomad

We are a brownie loving family. Even me, who doesn’t really care for chocolate can’t wait to bite into a corner piece of the brownie right out of the oven. It’s the best. But let’s not kid ourselves, dairy + eggs does not exactly equal a healthy snack- especially when you add lots of sugar and chocolate. Now we can kind of balance the unhealthy to healthy ratio by adding my secret ingredient- steamed chopped spinach!

Hold on now!

Don’t totally dismiss me- the spinach is steamed, then pureed and stirred into the brownie batter. The spinach becomes so well incorporated into the batter your kids wont even see it! Look at that batter! Can you see spinach?? I see little green flecks… just tell the kids you added some green sprinkles to the batter. I promise these Spinach Brownies DO NOT TASTE SPINACH-Y!

The spinach also adds extra moisture to the brownies so they definitely will not be dry! Added bonus! You can add up to 1 cup of spinach puree, but the more you add the moister it will be and not everyone .will like it. So stick with 1/2-3/4 cup

This little trick works perfect for kids who refuse to eat vegetables. They get to enjoy a sweet tooth and you can grin behind their backs as they gobble up one brownie after another. I experimented with my kids and several of our neighbors and everyone loved them! No one had any clue that these Spinach Brownies had spinach in them. How awesome is that?

I've never tried a chocolate and spinach brownie but I'd definitely try soon. This sounds healthy too.

I love hiding veggies in favorite foods! I use grated zucchini and carrots in my spaghetti sauce (add them with the onion and garlic), and avocados in brownies. Spinach would be AWESOME in this - the color would be hidden well, and I think it will actually ADD to the flavor!! Yum!!

I used to buy the canned baby spinach and do the same for my grandsons. My kids were easy to feed, they ate just about everything. Rule of house -- taste it and if they truly didn't like it they didn't have to finish. This only occurred when it was something new. We would always reintroduce it again at a later date. Your brownies look so good and moist - no child would refuse them!! Aren't we mothers smart?
