Flourless Blender Muffins

I’ve made these SEVERAL times and added my own twists to them…  ~ use your imagination and MAKE these today!

FLOURLESS BLENDER MUFFINS ~ These are a healthy version for muffins!!!!

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups dry oatmeal
Single serving container of any type or flavor yogurt (your favorite!)
2 organic eggs
1/2 cup coconut sugar or regular sugar (coconut is best for health)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 ripe bananas

Directions:
Use non-stick spray or grease with coconut oil (do not use paper muffin cups, they will stick to the paper).

Blend all the ingredients in blender on your highest setting until smooth. You may need to blend the oatmeal first if you do not have a high powered blender like a VitaMix and then add the remaining ingredients. If you do not have a high powered blender you will need to stir by hand in between blending to make sure all ingredients are mixed thoroughly. ***I use my NutriBullet!! 🙂

Note: You can also add a cup of chocolate or peanut butter chips into the batter (mixed in by hand) the kids would love this!

Pour batter into muffin tins dividing equally
Bake in pre-heated 400°F oven for 20-25 minutes until toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean.
Remove muffins carefully and let cool. Enjoy!
This recipe makes 10 – 12 Yummy muffins.
