I have the Wednesday sleepies…


Good thing I have an awesome recipe to share!


This is a twist on last week’s Quinoa, Bean, and Greek Yogurt Muffins.  The recipe format is basically the same, but this is a yummy Spinach and Artichoke flavored mini casserole! 



Spinach and Artichoke Greek Yogurt Muffins


Ingredients (for 12 muffins):

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (I used thawed frozen Trader Joe’s rice and it made this recipe a snap)
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, drained
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 generous cups spinach
  • 1 cup 2% Greek Yogurt plain
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt, to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease 12 cupcake tins.
  • After draining artichoke hearts, press in between a clean dish towel to remove extra moisture.  Chop artichoke hearts.
  • Chop spinach and cook on stovetop in oil until it wilts.
  • Combine artichokes, spinach, cooked rice, yogurt, cheese, eggs, and spices in large bowl.
  • Pour mixture into cupcake tins and bake covered with tin foil for 25 minutes. Uncover and cook for another 5.
  • Remove, let cool for a few minutes, and serve.

    Can I ask if the frozen brown rice is comparable in price to dry brown rice?

    • Caitlin January 28, 2015, 8:28 am

      Yup! It’s a great product.

    These look delicious! I’m definitely going to try them soon!

    Yay! I made the quinoa and bean ones on Sunday and there are fantastic. They thankfully fueled me through 3 days with a sick toddler. As I finished my last one I was thinking about ways to modify the flavors.

    Ask and you shall receive! Thanks Caitlin. Can’t wait to give these a try! 😉

    Yum! I love this. I love Spinach and Artichocke dip at restaurants but I always end up eating a boatload of tortilla chips with it … this looks way healthier!

    Also, did you mean to categorize this as Book a Week? Hahaha.

    • Caitlin January 28, 2015, 10:54 am

      Hahah whooops, I originally planned to post my book review in this post 🙂

      • Jessi January 28, 2015, 11:03 am

        Oh yay I hope it is coming soon! I love reading your book reviews. They are totally inspiring me to read more!

    Hi Caitlin! I am a long time reader and I just LOVE your blog! I know you’ve read and recommended some parenting books on your blog before. I have an 18 month old little boy (named Henry!) and it seems that he may have hit the terrible twos early! Is there a particular book that you would recommend that talks about toddlers, their behavior, and how to properly deal with it? There are so many parenting books out there! It’s quite overwhelming! Thank you!

    • Caitlin January 28, 2015, 12:06 pm

      Yes!! Read “123 magic” and “how to talk to so your kids will listen and listen so your kids will talk.” Both are amazing books and have changed the way I parent.

        Thank you so very much! Your reply to my comment has left me a little star struck! Lol!

    This might be a nice change of pace from my usual egg white and veggie muffins that I have for breakfast every day. Yum!

  • Becky January 28, 2015, 11:17 am

    I love making egg bakes, but have never tried with Greek yogurt. On my to-do list! Although I go the lazy route (I hate cleaning muffin pans) and dump the mixture into an 8×8 pan and cook for 30ish minutes.

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats January 28, 2015, 11:40 am

    omg I LOVE spinach and artichoke dip! This looks amazing!

  • Alex @ True Femme January 28, 2015, 1:39 pm

    I was so excited when you posted these on instagram. I cannot wait to make them! Spinach artichoke anything is an amazing combination!

  • Julianna @ Julianna Bananna January 28, 2015, 2:35 pm

    these look so delicious! anything involving eggs and i’m game 🙂

  • Elise January 29, 2015, 1:58 pm

    These were really good! Perfect toddler lunch!

    • Caitlin January 29, 2015, 2:53 pm

      Glad you liked! I need to make another batch.

  • Danielle January 29, 2015, 10:17 pm

    I love these savory muffin recipes. Which muffin tin do you use? I am on the market for a non-Teflon pan.

    • Caitlin January 30, 2015, 9:56 am

      A teflon one 🙂

  • Victoria March 24, 2015, 9:38 am

    These are delish. But i am very curious what you used to grease your pan. Mine pretty much stuck like glue and my pan is a disaster. Yours look so perfect! lol

    • Caitlin March 24, 2015, 11:09 am

      TJ’s cooking spray!
