Hi. I’m back.

It’s been awhile since I last shared a recipe.

The truth is, I’ve been pouring my heart and soul into producing the podcast, working on a new digital product that will be all about harnessing the power of health mindset, and juggling all the other work-family-life stuff on top of it.

And, since I’m all about that #gentleisthenewperfect mindset, I’ve been letting a few things slide off my plate, at least for a moment or two.

Plus, to be honest, Pacific Northwest winters are pretty dark and dreary, making the whole food photography think a whole lot trickier.

The days are starting to get longer (and a tad brighter), though, and I’m determined to share a least a few recipe gems with you each month.

And what a better place to start than muffins.

Blender muffins, to be specific.

I feel like nothing describes my cooking philosophy better than these muffins.

Drop a bunch of real-food ingredients into a blender.

No junk or processed sweeteners, just wholesome goodness.

Turn on.

Pour into a muffin tin.

Bake for a few short minutes.

Serve and watch everyone gobble them up.

Done and done.

Since developing this recipe I’ve made these muffins exactly twice a week, since my family seems to have become addicted.

They make the best after-school or afternoon snack, and I’ve been packing them for work and school, too.

If you’re nut-free, you’ll want to go with the oat flour option, and if you’re grain-free/paleo, go for the almond flour.

You really can’t go wrong.

I hope you’ll make these soon. Share the muffin love with me on Instagram @realfoodwholelife so I can see what you’re making, or in the comments.

Now, let’s make some Maple Banana Flourless Blender Muffins!

Blender Maple Banana Flourless Muffins

Yield 12 muffins

Drop a few simple, wholesome ingredients in the blender, whiz it up, and you'll have homemade muffins in a matter of minutes. Naturally sweetened, gluten-free, dairy-free, and grain-free, Blender Maple Banana Flourless Muffins are sure to be a hit!

Ingredients

  • cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup very ripe mashed banana
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond or oat flour*
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ chopped walnuts optional

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 350F.
  • Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender, and blend until smooth. You may need to stop blending to scrape the sides once or twice. If you don’t want to use a blender, simply whisk together the coconut oil, eggs, banana, maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl.
  • Grease or line a 12-cup muffin pan with silicone liners. Spoon or pour 3-4 heaping tablespoons of batter into each cup. Sprinkle with walnuts, if using.
  • Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes, or until the tops are slightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of a muffin.
  • Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then cool the rest of the way on a cooling rack.

Notes

*Make your own oat flour for this recipe by placing 2 cups whole rolled oats in a blender and blending until a coarse flour forms. You can purchase pre-made oat flour at many grocery stores and natural food markets or online. If you are gluten-free be sure to buy oats that are specifically labeled gluten-free.
Skip the walnuts and almond flour for a nut-free option.
Use a blender or simply whisk in a bowl--whatever is easier for you!
