Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Puree the applesauce and spinach in a blender. You may need to add the spinach in batches. Using a hand mixer, blend the spinach mixture and vanilla into the flour mixture for 2 minutes. Divide evenly into 18 cupcake liners (in a cupcake pan, of course).

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool completely. Recipe recommends topping with buttercream icing.
