Please forgive me as I haven’t been blogging as much as I normally do. You can blame the following recipe which is so simple that I’m making a batch every two days. What’s not to love? All you need is a blender and a few ingredients. I’m also loving the fact that there’s NO FLOUR, NO SUGAR and NO BUTTER in this recipe.
This recipe is saving me in the morning as I tend to sleep in till the last possible moment. As a result – there’s always a mad dash out the door WITHOUT eating anything. Now I simply grab a zip lock bag and enjoy these muffins in my car. Can anyone else relate?
I’m not going to keep you waiting much longer for the recipe. Here it is!
Recipe: Blender Oatmeal Muffins (original recipe can be found here – www.wellplated.com)
2 cups oats (quick cooking or old fashioned – I used old fashioned)
2 large ripe bananas
2 large eggs
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 to 3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cups of mix ins – chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, chopped dates – whatever you want!!
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Mix all ingredients in the blender. (how easy could this get?).
3. Drop batter into a well greased muffin pan. Fill no more than three-quarters of the way to the top. Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips or nuts as desired. Bake for 15 minutes, until the tops of the muffins are set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Place the pan on a wire rack and let the muffins cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
I tried this recipe yesterday morning and it was so delicious that I believe I’ve washed my Blendtec three times in one day! Oh how I hate cleaning up but I do love discovering new recipes.
This is one of those easy recipes that requires ingredients that most likely you have hanging around your kitchen.
OK here’s the recipe for your healthy frosty!
All you need is the following:
2 frozen cut up bananas
1 cup of milk (almond, regular, soya, rice – whatever you like)
2 tablespoons of real cocoa
2 tablespoons of all natural peanut butter
Put all ingredients into your mixer and mix till smooth.
We are totally addicted to this drink. However I would really like a cleaning fairy to help me rinse out my Blendtec. Not kidding – I really do hate cleaning up.
