Blender Muffins

I mentioned last weekend on Instagram that I was trying a new recipe for blender muffins.  They sounded tasty, I had all of the ingredients and there was no flour or granulated sugar in them.  Win-win-win :)

The original recipe can be found here
and I made some changes to improve them!

My recipe:
3 ripe bananas
3/4 c your favorite peanut butter
2 eggs
1 t baking soda
1 t vanilla
sprinkle of salt
1 generous squeeze of honey
1/2 c chocolate chips

Put everything in the blender except for the chocolate chips and blend until smooth.

Scoop into mini muffin tins and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

 I saved a few chocolate chips to add on top of the muffins.

 My baking assistant was very helpful this morning.  She loves kitchen utensils and bowls so I usually make her a little station to do some cooking of her own.





 These were best fresh out of the oven and got a little chewy leftover.
Olive and I both loved them and they are much healthier than our usual muffin recipes.

 What do you make for your littles for breakfast??

My bloggy friend Kelley has done a whole series on super quick AND healthy breakfast options for toddlers.  Check out her breakfast ideas here - I am anxious to try the microwave eggs, muffins and baked banana pancakes she's shared.  She even sneaks veggies into breakfast and makes it look delicious.

  2. These look so simple! Yum! I've microwaved eggs before for Elizabeth. They turn out great! Just a little more eggy smelling then just cooking them on the stove.

  3. I love Kelley's series on foods to feed toddlers. It literally changed my life. We now have microwave eggs frequently. It is so much easier to cook one little egg in a microwave.

  4. Those look delicious! Like as good as cookies.

    Totally off topic...I got an email about an online sewing class (http://shop.abeautifulmess.com/shop/classes/sew-with-us). It sounds fun but never tried one. Thought I'd pass on the link in case you haven't came across any online stuff yet. I want you to start sewing because I know you'll make the cutest stuff and I want to see! :)

  5. I love breakfast muffins! We will have to try these! Kevin isn't a muffin fan so I'll have to make them a weekday when he's not home! :)

  6. Awee you are so sweet!! I can't believe I'm just seeing this a week later. (It's been a crazy week though!) I love this muffin idea! We've been doing a bit of paleo desserts to eat less sugar - and Olivia's been liking them, so I know she will love these! I think I'm going to make them for Easter morning.
