These 5-ingredient blender muffins are like magic! You won’t believe how tasty they are and they are made with NO flour, NO oil, and NO refined sugar!
Heads up! This post was first published in 2011. These blender muffins are a family favorite and have been one of Happy Healthy Mama’s most popular posts through the years. Updates were made February 2018.
When I first heard someone talk about “blender muffins” it sounded too good to be true. You really just put 5 ingredients in a blender, blend it up, bake it, and it becomes a muffin?
Can’t be. Wait–what? No flour, either? No oil? Come on. I was skeptical.
I’m not skeptical anymore because I’ve made these 5-ingredient blender muffins almost a dozen times (probably hundreds now!) and they are the easiest muffins ever. Not only are they easy, but they taste wonderful, too. My family gobbles these up as quick as I can bake them.
I first saw blender muffins here and then after a little searching found this recipe. I started out making the plain variety: peanut butter, banana, eggs, vanilla, a liquid sweetener (honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar) and just a touch of baking powder. They were heaven.
Then I started adding things here or there, trying new variations. That brings me to today where I present to you 15 different variations of these super easy blender muffins.
I’ve had a lot of fun experimenting with these flavor combinations and I think you’ll like what I’ve come up with. I’ve got a nut-free version.
Don’t do eggs? There’s a vegan version.
Do you avoid peanuts? There’s an almond butter version.
There’s a few sinful versions and of course some fruity variations. There is truly something for everyone.
Tips and Tricks for Flourless Blender Muffins
- When these first come out of the oven, they will be puffy with a domed top like regular muffins. They will not stay this way, which is normal. Don’t be alarmed when they become flat. Without flour, they don’t have the structure to keep the lift, but they still taste delicious.
- You can make these into mini muffins or full-sized muffins. See the recipe notes.
- You must let these cool completely before removing them from the muffin pan. They WILL stick if you try to remove them before they have cooled.
- Options for reducing sticking include spraying with cooking spray, butter the pan and sprinkle with flour if you don’t mind using flour, or use silicone baking cups like these or these. (affiliate links)
It’s amazing how these bake up like muffins without any flour. They don’t have the exact texture of a regular muffin, but they are very muffin-like.
I love these all so much I don’t know if I can pick a favorite. The ones that top my list, however, are sunbutter crunch, peanut butter and jelly, chocolate chip, plain almond butter or peanut butter, and blueberry. Meghan loves the cinnamon version.
These also freeze well, so you can make a big batch and have them on hand whenever you need a quick breakfast or snack. These healthy blender muffins are a great lunch box addition, too. (Check out my Instagram stories to see what I pack my kiddos each day!)
So what are you waiting for? Get that blender ready!
