Want to hear the easiest muffin recipe in the world? Psst, its this one. No, really. These healthy blender muffins are the perfect recipe for the non-baker. I know many busy people like you don’t have much time to bake. Or maybe you just don’t like baking. Or heck, you might like to bake, but don’t have a lot of time to do it. That’s why this recipe is so awesome. I timed myself making them, and start to finish, it was done in 20 minutes.
The batter was done before my oven was finished preheated….and I have a “rapid” preheat option on my oven! 20 minutes, 12 muffins, a whole lot of snacks for the week. I’ve been primarily giving these to the kids. They contain all the ingredients you’d want them to have in a snack or breakfast: oats, fruit, greek yogurt, eggs, flax and an extra boost of protein.
I used my fabulous Blendtec to get the job done, which is a high powered blender similar to a Vitamix. It has a handy batter setting, so with one click of the button, about 20 seconds later, the batter was done. If you don’t have a high powered blender, I’m sure a regular one would work, it might just not get quite as smooth. A food processor should also be able to handle the job too.
You can’t tell from the other photo’s, but I did put in a bit of stevia chocolate chips in there to please the kiddos. They sunk to the bottom, so they were a bit of a hidden treasure! I think they taste just fine without, so its an option. But if you’re serving them to kids, a little bribery never hurt nobody 😉
I hope you give these a try really soon. I’m sure afterwards you’ll be just as baffled as I was with how easy is was!
- 1¾ cups oats (I used quick oats)
- ½ cup whey protein powder (I used Whey Gourmet Naturelle, vanilla) *could sub for extra oats
- ¼ cup flaxseeds (I used ground flax) *could sub for extra oats
- ½ cup stevia for baking (or sweetener of choice)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup non-fat greek yogurt
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1½ tsps baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ cup stevia chocolate chips (I used Krisda stevia semi-sweet chocolate chips) *could sub for regular chocolate chips, or omit (will change nutrition)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
- Spray or brush a muffin tin with a healthy oil
- Place ingredients except chocolate chips in your blender (I used my Blendtec)
- Blend until smooth
- Stir in chocolate chips by hand
- Pour batter into 12 muffin tins
- Bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean
* Healthy muffins tend to get dry out a bit once they're cooled and stored. To make them taste fresh out of the oven again, microwave each muffin for 25 seconds before eating.
