Blender banana oatmeal muffins will enable you to make muffins so fast that you will be cleaned up 10 minutes before the muffins come out of the oven.
Yes, I am still making muffins this year. I have made whole grain banana muffins and Kodiak Cakes muffins. The Kodiak cakes are so fast because they use Kodiak Cakes pancake mix.
This time I used my blender. Why? Because there is simply no reason to buy baked goods when you can make healthy versions at home with stuff you have laying around.
How many of you have bananas, oats, and yogurt in your house right now? I can’t see your hands but I am guessing most of you. Toss them in the blender!
Right? This blends up fast and then you can just pour the batter into the muffin cups.
I found these a bit bland on their own so I added some chocolate chips that I found in the back of my pantry. What else could you find in there? walnuts, dried cranberries, coconut? How about some frozen blueberries in the bottom of your freezer?
I stirred my extra mix-in into the batter in the blender because I was afraid of what would happen if I turned it on.
My blender, Blendtec, is pretty amazing. The carafe broke after 2 years of use and they sent me a new one for free. I did not get this appliance for free (sometimes I get sent stuff like this). I bought it for myself and I have been known to share it with my family.
I keep it on my counter (prime space) and I use it almost every day (smoothies, soups, sauces). It is a workhorse and it fits in my dishwasher. LOVE!
Have you made banana muffins in your blender? Please share.
