How about a healthy recipe for you guys today?
Today’s recipe is inspired by the Paleo blender muffins my friend Danielle made for the adults and kids to enjoy during a play date at her house on Monday. I’m not sure who ate the muffins faster — my girlfriends or our toddlers — but everyone left asking her for the recipe because the muffins were so darn good.
Since Danielle and her family follow a gluten-free and dairy-free diet, I’m continually impressed by her kitchen creations and just how well they always seem to turn out. These Paleo blender muffins are made with a base of ripe bananas, almond flour and coconut flour and come together quickly without much work.
An added bonus: The dishes you’ll have to do after making these muffins are minimal since you simply throw everything into a blender to make your batter. Less mess = Win!
Quick question: Do you guys like it when I include nutritional information for my recipes? I’m happy to do so but wasn’t sure if it is something you guys would like to see when you’re browsing recipes on this blog. Please let me know if it’s of interest!
Made with a base of ripe bananas and almond flour, these Paleo Blender Muffins are a gluten-free and dairy-free treat, perfect for an on-the-go snack or breakfast. Paleo Blender Muffins taste fantastic topped with a smear of almond butter and come together quickly thanks to the use of a high-powered blender.
I added chia seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt to Danielle’s Paleo blender muffin recipe, but feel free to omit any or all of those ingredients if you want to keep the recipe as simple as possible. The muffins will still be delicious.
I also recommend baking the muffins in a silicone muffin pan if possible, as they tend to stick to muffin liners. (This is not a big deal and we didn’t mind the muffins sticking at all, but it’s still worth mentioning in case you have a silicone muffin pan on hand!)
Additionally, the muffins freeze really well, so feel free to double the recipe and pop some of the cooled muffins into the freezer. Simply microwave the muffins for 20 seconds to bring them back to life!
