Nutritious Blender Muffins

I have noticed….I haven’t been eating as clean as I used to and I am really trying to get back into it because it is just plain better for my body. It really makes me feel better overall. Sometimes you don’t notice when something is making a difference until you stop doing it as much 😉 Also, when I spend my time cooking or baking (this is the extent of my baking) I am happier. It is a hobby that I enjoy. I love to be in the kitchen! I know some of you feel pressed for time but if you just make it a priority you CAN eat less processed food and you CAN make meals and snacks ahead of time. No excuses 🙂 Just do it!

I made these muffins this morning and I wanted to share them with you! They couldn’t be easier as you place ALL of the ingredients into the blender and pour directly from there into your muffin pan.

Ingredients & how to:

  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup nut butter (I used peanut butter)
  • 1/2 c Plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 c old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup nuts (I used walnuts)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 c honey

I used liners but if you don’t make sure you spray or use oil to coat your muffin tins

>Place all ingredients into blender and pulse or blend until smooth

>Pour into muffin tins about 3/4 of the way up

>Bake at 350 for 18 to 20 min until tops are golden brown

Makes 12 muffins

Great for a snack or for breakfast (whatever-anytime!)-they are filling!

Hope you enjoy and feel free to make them your own by adding other goodies like berries or dried fruits, different butters or nuts.
