HEALTHY OAT & BLUEBERRY BLENDER MUFFINS

Delicious and super healthy, these gluten free Oat & Blueberry Blender Muffins are so easy to make and nutritious enough to have for breakfast!

I promised myself that I was going to get better at breakfast time in 2016. Although I always have great intentions to encourage the kids to eat a wider and more varied diet at breakfast time, I still find myself falling back on the same breakfasts when we are in a rush during the week.

I have seen Blender Muffin recipes all over pinterest lately. This recipe in particular caught my eye and I decided to adapt it to make these super delicious and healthy Oat & Blueberry Blender Muffins. Perfect for busy mornings when I don’t have enough time to prepare a breakfast from scratch.

First of all I have to stress how easy this recipe is. All you need to do is chuck the ingredients into a blender or food processor and blitz until they are all combined. No hard graft needed in mixing or stirring!

These muffins are super nutritious too; made with oats rather than wheat flour and honey instead of refined sugar. They are perfect for breakfast, packed full of slow releasing carbs and fibre and make a great snack for kids too.

One thing I should point out is that because these muffins are made with oats, they are denser than normal muffins. So if you are expecting a super light and fluffy muffin then I don’t want to disappoint you. However, I really like the texture of these muffins and even though they are quite dense, they feel really hearty and filling.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups / 100g rolled oats
  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup / 125g fresh or frozen blueberries

Recipe adapted from Le Creme De La Crumb
INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 390f / 180c. Line a muffin tray with muffin cases and spray them with a little spray oil.
  2. Put all the ingredients except the blueberries into a blender or food processor and blitz until all combined. Stir in half the blueberries.

Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins

These moist, vegan, and dairy-free cinnamon sugar pumpkin muffins are 100% whole wheat (but can also be made with all-purpose flour) and naturally sweetened with maple syrup!

The past 5 days have been a baking frenzy getting ready for the next 10 days. After eating pretty much only sweets all day long for 6 months, I need a little detox. So Mr. Texanerin, a friend and I aren’t going to eat any grains, sweeteners, potatoes or other starchy-like stuff for the next 10 days. What does that even leave? Fruits, vegetables and meat? And cheese. I’m going to eat lots of cheese. 😀

First up we have these cinnamon sugar pumpkin muffins. When they came out of the oven, they looked kind of funky texturally but they were perfectly moist, not fluffy but a little dense (but in a good way!), which is exactly how I like my cakey goodies. If you want something a little lighter, try these non-vegan baked pumpkin donuts. And if you want something gluten-free, try these paleo cinnamon sugar pumpkin donut holes.

I coated some of these in pumpkin spice sugar coating but by the end of the day, I thought they tasted like zucchini. Really! Definitely go with cinnamon sugar unless you want zucchini cinnamon sugar pumpkin muffins, which is just weird. While I liked them without the cinnamon sugar coating, I thought that they were loads better with it, which I guess is kind of obvious because, well, it’s butter, sugar, and cinnamon.

ou know how you normally just plop the batter in the pan and if it’s not very even, neat or pretty, it straightens itself out while baking? That doesn’t happen here. How they look in the pan is pretty much how they look after baking. I smoothed the top of the one of the left. If you don’t do that, they’ll look like the ones of the right.

Ingredients

For the donut holes:

  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (109 grams) whole wheat flour, whole spelt flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 cup (56 grams) coconut oil, melted or canola or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup (182 grams) pumpkin puree, room temperature

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar (make sure to use vegan certified sugar for a vegan version)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoons (28-42 grams) unsalted butter (vegan butter or coconut oil for a dairy-free or vegan version), melted

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line muffin pan with 6 muffin liners.
  2. In a medium bow, mix together the dry ingredients (flour through cloves). Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oil, maple syrup and pumpkin.
  4. Add the dry mixture to the wet one and stir just until combined.

Spinach + Banana Healthy Breakfast Muffins Recipe for Toddlers

This is THE Healthy Breakfast Muffins Recipe for Toddlers you’ve been searching for!

I think I speak for many toddler moms out there when I say that trying to get your toddler to eat vegetables is hard work! I remember when my daughter was just starting to eat solid foods and she loved spinach, broccoli and carrot purees – it was glorious! Right as I got overly confident in her vegetable eating abilities, she became a toddler with preferences, and a certain ‘tude against all veggies! I did NOT see that one coming. Now, I’ve made it my personal mission to hide as many vegetables as I can into other foods that she will eat – smoothies, muffins, sandwiches, etc.

A few months ago one of my fellow mommy friends, Ashley (Founder of The Sharing Exchange — a website where you can rent children’s goods and get paid to share yours), sent me this Spinach + Banana Healthy Breakfast Muffins Recipe for Toddlers. Ashley is great in the kitchen and I knew if this recipe came from her that it HAD to be good (and nutritious) so we gave it a go and it has become a breakfast staple in our household ever since.

These Spinach and Banana Breakfast Muffins are REALLY good – like TOO good…like, Mommy might eat 35 muffins this morning good. But they’re packed with spinach and contain low sugar so it serves as a guilt-free and perfect grab ‘n go breakfast for the whole family!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (one of the single serving cups)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh organic spinach – uncooked (could also add shredded carrots, shredded zucchini, or shredded
  • yellow squash (all raw) to really pack it full of veggies!)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup Maple Syrup, Organic, Grade A
  • 2 tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1.5 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  4. Add the wet spinach mixture from blender to the dry ingredients.

Blueberry Muffin Cake

Blueberry Muffin Bundt Cake! Simple and sweet blueberry cake loaded with blueberries and lemon zest, then topped sweet buttermilk glaze and crispy crumbly oat topping. This blueberry cake is a sensation any day of the week.

As we get closer and closer to berry season, my cravings for bright tangy nutrient-packed berries is uncontainable. I want them on cereal, in smoothies, in salads, in sauces, but most of all, in dessert. And I like to pretend that adding berries makes everything I eat super healthy.

Let’s just go with it.

Along the lines of healthy… Sometimes I want dessert for breakfast. Other times I want breakfast for dessert. Today’s recipe is an either-or recipe, I like to call Blueberry Muffin Cake.

It’s a blueberry cake with the rich and tangy elements of a good blueberry muffin recipe, like buttermilk and lemon zest. Then I topped the cake with a creamy buttermilk glaze and crumbled brown sugar oat topping, similar to streusel topped muffins!

The crumbly oat and nut top, tender decadent cake crumb, and dark juicy blueberries are simply more than I can bear. See how the berries are bursting out of the surface?

Ingredients:

For the Blueberry Cake:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all purpose Gold Medal Flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 pound fresh blueberries

For the Buttermilk Glaze:

  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

For the Oat Crumble Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons oats
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds

Directions:

  1. For the blueberry cake: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with flour. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Then beat in the eggs and vanilla. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the flour and buttermilk, alternating each, until all incorporated. Finally beat in the lemon zest before turning the mixer off. Use a spoon the stir in half the blueberries.
  2. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and sprinkle the remaining blueberries over the top. Bake for 60-80 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 20 minutes before flipping out onto a cooling rack. DO NOT try flipping the cake any earlier than 20 minutes, or the cake will stick. Promise! Waiting 30+ minutes is safer.

LEMON BLUEBERRY CUPCAKES

My favorite Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes! Topped with homemade Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting and Fresh Blueberries, they’re simply irresistible.

My friends!!!
The weekend is at our fingertips and I couldn’t be more excited… to do nothing. I’m talking a feet kicked up on the coffee table, delivery menus at arms length, and Law & Order on loop kind of weekend. After 4 epic recipe fails, an inbox that just won’t quit, and the return of allergy season, I just need it.

What’s on the horizon for your weekend? Relaxing? Adventuring? Baking some of my recipes? If you bake one recipe this weekend, may I suggest these beautiful lemon blueberry cupcakes?

They’re quite simple to make, but yield very impressive results. The cupcakes themselves are supremely moist, just sweet enough, and exploding with blueberries in every bite. The batter will be quite thick, but fret not, as they bake up beautifully!

The lemon cream cheese frosting is a breeze to whip up and compliments the lemon blueberry cupcakes perfectly. Start to finish, making the frosting should only take 10 minutes max, so you’ll have plenty of time to whip it up while the lemon blueberry cupcakes bake.

Tips and Tricks For Success:

  1. Before you begin assembling the batter for your lemon blueberry cupcakes, it’s very important all of your liquid ingredients have been brought to room temperature. For this recipe, this means the sour cream, milk, butter, and eggs. I find in these warmer months this takes about 30 minutes, but times will vary depending on your climate.
  2. I list lemon extract as an optional ingredient. If you prefer cupcakes that have a light lemon flavor, I do not think it’s an essential ingredient. If you prefer a very lemony cupcake, I highly suggest adding the extract to both the lemon blueberry cupcake batter as well as the frosting. I love Watkins pure lemon extract because it’s 100% natural, doesn’t contain any artificial flavors, colors, or additives, and just tastes like pure lemon. Btw, I’m not getting paid a cent to say any of that; I just really love their lemon extract!
  3. Lightly scoop and level your flour. Packed flour will lead to dry, dense cupcakes.
  4. Fresh or frozen blueberries may be used in the batter. If you’re using frozen, do not thaw them first. Frozen blueberries will likely make the cupcakes a little more purple than fresh, but both taste equally delicious.
  5. I do not recommend adding more blueberries than called for to the batter. Adding too many berries will weigh down the cupcakes as they bake, causing them to sink the middle and bake unevenly. You can add plenty of extra blueberries on top of the frosting 😉
  6. Speaking of the frosting, you’ll want to make sure your butter and cream cheese are very soft before beginning. I suggest getting them a little softer than room temperature; this ensures they beat smooth and no clumps are left behind.
  7. Keep an eye on your cupcakes as they bake. My cupcakes took exactly 20 minutes, but yours may be done as early as 16, depending on how your oven runs. You’ll know they’re done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, or with just a few moist crumbs attached.
  8. As always, you’ll want to make sure the cupcakes are completely cooled before frosting them. I used a Wilton Extra Large Round Tip to frost my cupcakes, but any tip – or even just a knife – will do.
  9. If you’d like your cupcakes to look exactly like the ones in these photos, simply top them with fresh blueberries (I find the smaller ones look better and don’t weigh down the frosting too much) and fresh lemon zest (I like to grate it onto a large plate and let it dry just a few seconds before sprinkling it).

INGREDIENTS :

For the Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes:

  • 1 and 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup full-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, if using frozen do not thaw first
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract (optional, but really amps up the lemon flavor)
  • 1 large egg plus one egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest

For the Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, very soft
  • (1) 8 ounce block full-fat cream cheese, very soft
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract (optional, but really amps up the lemon flavor)
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

To Decorate:

  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest, optional
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, optional

INSTRUCTIONS :

For the Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). *Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine 1 and 3/4 cups of the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the sour cream, milk, and 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice whisk well to combine and set aside.
  4. Place blueberries in a small bowl; add remaining lemon juice and toss to coat the berries
  5. add remaining flour and toss to coat the berries in the flour; set aside.
  6. In a large bowl using a handheld electric mixer, or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds.
  7. Add in the granulated sugar and lemon extract (if using) and beat until well combined.
  8. Add in the egg and egg yolk and mix well. Reduce the mixer speed to low.
  9. Add in 1/2 of the flour mixture and mix until just combined (this should take about 5 seconds).
  10. Add 1/2 of the sour cream mixture and mix until just combined. Repeat with remaining flour and sour cream mix, being sure to mix on low until just combined.
  11. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the floured blueberries (and any excess flour in the bowl) and lemon zest.
  12. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them 3/4 of the way full.
  13. Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  14. Allow cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  15. Once cupcakes are cool, frost and decorate. The cupcakes may also be frozen, unfrosted and stored in a freezer safe bag, for up to 2 months.

On a side note, there was an error in this recipe in the book. I contacted Chef Mani Niall through his website and he was super nice and very helpful with straightening things out. The recipe below is correct.

SKINNY OATMEAL BROWN SUGAR MUFFINS

Even though I feel like January is the anti-desserts month, my sweet tooth didn’t get the message.
Thankfully the muffins won’t jeopardize your New Year’s resolutions and are skinny jeans-friendly.
It’s a dump-everything-all-at-once into one bowl and stir recipe, my favorite kind.
The muffins are very soft, moist, super springy, have wonderful chewiness, and great texture thanks in part to the oats. But there’s no oil or butter, no dairy, and just 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar in the entire batch. Really. Most of the sweetness comes via sugar-free pancake syrup. If you want to use real maple syrup, feel free, but the muffins won’t be as skinny since real syrup is packed with calories.
I used Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk and it’s tied with Silk’s newer Unsweetened Cashewmilk as my two favorite milks for baking. Very low in calories, high in calcium and protein, very smooth, and irresistibly creamy.
I get great results every time. Switching to Silk is an easy, delicious way to start adding more plants to your diet. Like the plants Silk is made from, when your body gets everything it needs to be healthy, it blooms. Sign up for the Silk newsletter to receive recipes and healthy tips.
To keep the muffins dairy-free, I used Silk Vanilla Dairy-Free Yogurt although you can substitute with your favorite Greek yogurt or lite sour cream if that’s what you keep on hand.

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned whole-rolled oats (don’t use quick cook or instant; they’re finer and act more like flour and batter will be too dry)
  • 1/2 cup Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk (Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk or another milk may be substituted)
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free pancake syrup (lite syrup or real maple syrup may be substituted)
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed (strongly recommend dark, although light brown may be substituted)
  • 1/4 cup Silk Vanilla Dairy-Free Yogurt (Greek yogurt, sour cream, or lite sour cream may be substituted)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray 10 of the 12 cavities of a Non-Stick 12-Cup Regular Muffin Pan (note you will not use all 12) very well with cooking spray or grease and flour the pan; set aside. (I don’t prefer the cosmetic look of muffin liners.)
  2. To a large bowl, add all the ingredients and whisk until smooth and combined, without needlessly over-mixing.
    Using a large cookie scoop or 1/4-cup measure, evenly distribute the batter into 10 of the cavities of the prepared pan, filling each cavity no more than 3/4-full or muffins will overflow while baking.
  3. Bake for about 20 minutes or until tops are set, springy to the touch, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter.
  4. Use your judgment when evaluating doneness because muffin pans, ovens, ingredients, and climates vary. Start watching closely at about 16 minutes.
