The Easiest Paleo Muffins EVER!
I. Love. Baked. Goods.
Cake, cookies, muffins, donuts, scones ... they are my thing. I'm having a bad day? Give me a cake pop and it turns my world around. Baked goods are the way to my heart, y'all. And that's a problem when you're trying to eat a nutrient-dense, whole foods diet. But I found something that totally satisfies my cravings! If you haven't had a variation of blender muffins before, they will ROCK YOUR WORLD. You're welcome in advance.
I know you're thinking that these can't possibly be that good if there's not any kind of flour, oil. or refined sugar in them, but I promise you ... they are amazing! Like so good you have to stop yourself from eating all of them at once.
A single batch makes about a dozen mini muffins or 6 regular sized muffins. I'm telling you right now, double this recipe. If you don't, you are totally going to be bummed out when you sink your teeth into the first one.
Feel free to experiment with the nut butters and toppings. All of the nut butters work well, and I've used dried fruit, fresh fruit, and nuts as toppings. Someone gave me this basic recipe a while ago, so I don't know where to give any credit. And I wish I did because these muffins have changed my life. Thank you, thank you, paleo blender muffin creator 🙂

- 1/2 cup of nut butter my favorite is cashew!
- 1 medium ripe banana
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2 T maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips FYI - technically not Paleo because of the cane sugar
Put all of the above ingredients (except the chocolate chips) into a blender.
Blend. (You can just as easily use a mixer but that just means more dirty dishes.)
Pour into mini or regular sized cupcake pan. (I recommend using cupcake liners!)
Sprinkle the tops with mini chocolate chips. (This is optional but COME ON.)
Bake mini muffins for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees.
Bake regular sized muffins for about 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
