Flourless Peanut Butter Blender Muffins Recipe – the best blender muffins ever! Soft, fluffy and delicious! Make these muffins in just minutes right in your blender!
My kiddos love muffins. They also know by now what a good muffins is. It has to be fluffy, soft and it’s good if there is chocolate involved. 🙂 I agree! Domed tops are a sign of success when it comes to muffins. Every time I try a new muffin recipe, I always look for domed tops. The fact that these muffins have no white flour in them and use peanut butter in place of oil AND come out gorgeously – puts them right in my top 5 favorite muffin recipes ever.
This recipe is so easy, you will remember it after just a couple of batches. Also, it’s easy to divide so you can make 6 regular size muffins or 12 mini muffins. Love that! All you need is old-fashioned oats, bananas, peanut butter, two eggs, brown sugar, Greek yogurt or sour cream, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla. Blend everything for 20 seconds, scrape the sides of your blender jar, blend again for 20 more seconds until everything is well mixed. The batter will look slightly grainy because of the oats but it will bake into soft and fluffy muffins.
One important thing to remember is that there is not much sugar in this recipe (only 1/4 of a cup) and the main sweetness of these muffins comes from the bananas. That’s why I recommend using very ripe bananas, that already have brown spots on their skin. You can of course use any bananas, but just keep this in mind. The more ripe bananas – the sweeter the muffins.
I use my Blendtec for this recipe and I blend the ingredients on the batter mode. It takes about 23 seconds. If you are using a regular blender, blend until the ingredients come together, then scrape sides (peanut butter likes to stick to them) then blend again until is all smooth.
After the batter is well blender, you can stir in any add-ons. I only added chocolate chips by sprinkling them over the tops. You can use shredded coconut, chopped nuts or even cinnamon sugar! Whatever your heart desires!
This recipe makes 6 regular size muffins but you can easily double it to make a whole pan.
Since the warm weather arrived in Kansas, we have been going for walks almost every day. I love to pack these muffins with us for the kiddos to snack on. It’s a great healthier option that will keep them full and happy. 🙂
