Easy banana blender muffins are a healthy and delicious breakfast or snack. They taste so good, you won’t believe they are made without flour and oil.
Banana muffins never last long at my house. My kids love for me to make these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. Those are really yummy, but I wanted to see what would happen if I made a flourless, oil-less version. You know, a healthier kind of muffin.
This easy banana blender muffin recipe replaces oil with Greek Yogurt. It really works! And instead of flour, the recipe uses old-fashioned oats. Your blender will grind the oats up into a powder, so you are really making your own oat “flour.”
If you have ever made blender muffins, you know how easy it is to just dump all the ingredients in the blender and mix them up. Then, simply pour the mixture into the muffin pan and bake. There’s not a lot of messy mixing bowls to clean up, which is a plus in my book.
The real question is: Do these banana blender muffins taste good? Answer: Yes! My kids scarf them down just as quickly as they would if they were “regular” muffins. I especially like to eat them when they are warm! (Reheat muffins for a few seconds in the microwave if necessary.)
Three things we noticed about flourless muffins. One: The texture of these muffins isn’t quite as bread-like as a normal muffin made with white flour. It’s not a bad thing, just a slight difference. Two: The fresh banana flavor really comes through in these muffins, more so than in traditional muffins. I don’t know why. Three: These muffins are delicious! They disappear fast.
I have made these muffins several times already. The kids like them so much, I have even gone to the store to buy the discounted “old” overripe bananas so we didn’t have to wait for yellow bananas to ripen at home. The browner the bananas are, the better they taste in this recipe.
Give these banana blender muffins a try, and let me know what you think!
