Healthy Flourless Blender Muffins – Super soft and healthy muffins packed with oats and bananas, and whipped up in the blender. SO delicious, you won’t believe they are under 110 calories each!
Quick and super easy muffins for dessert! Err. I mean, for breakfast!! Well, actually… I guess they technically are a dessert since they are sweet, but they’re like dessert for breakfast, you know? I’m overthinking this, ain’t I?
Hello thare, friends! Hello thare, Wednesday! Today’s drool-worthy treats are brought to you by ME with the help of Braun Kitchen Collection!
Braun is back in North America with a brand new line of beautiful and reliable products that have been created to make food preparation easier for all cooks, and also coffee lovers. Evidence to follow:
Something odd happens when you become a parent, especially when said parent/s has kids that are JUST starting school, daycare, or preschool, etc…
Plain and simple, you find shortcuts. Lemme elaborate.
First thing is first. Let’s be real. Who has time to make freshly baked breakfast goods, 5 days a week? NOT this girl. I mean, if you are one of the few that does that with kids that are all under 8 years old, BRAVO! I applaud you! But that ain’t me. Well, it was me, but for about a whole 2 weeks and then I had to find a better, more efficient way that would benefit all of us.
Enter: Healthy Flourless Blender Muffins.
These are, what I like to call, the lazy girl muffins. However, before I knew any better, and before the blender, they were the muffins that took toooooo long to prepare, every other morning prior to bus pick-ups and school drop-offs. Also? They were the muffins my kids didn’t like because, texture. Sidenote: I learned that kids do not like texture! Odd. The oats – they hated them.
So, I started to do what some of my friends were doing: I threw all the ingredients in a blender and voila! No whipping, no stirring, no overmixing, NO funny, grainy texture, yet super soft and healthy muffins packed with all good for you ingredients. I felt like a true winner.
In line with the above idea, of preparing healthy, yet quick and delicious treats or meals, Braun is helping to make things easier for parents by eliminating some of the stress in the kitchen with time-saving kitchen technology. With Braun, you can conquer the expected and create the unexpected in the kitchen, much like our unexpected, yet darn amazing blender muffins. They are nibbles of love.
But if morning-parenting means eating more of this stuff? I mean… come awwwn. Gimme!
