I feel that these are too sweet for a savory muffin. I also feel that this recipe could use more flavour. It's really bland/sweet as written. THX

I really liked these. You can hardly taste the spinach and the jalapeno added a nice little kick. I halved the recipe and it only ended up making 5 standard muffins.

The spinach adds a nice flavor (and vitamins) and it was moist. I would definitely bake these again.
