How to make blender baked oatmeal muffins
These oatmeal muffins are so easy to make and sure to become a go-to breakfast or treat for you and your family. Here is how to make the best ever blender oat muffins.
First, start by preheating your oven to 350°F and line a muffin tin with liners.
To prepare the muffin batter, add the rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt to a high-speed blender and blend together for 30 – 45 seconds until they reach a flour-like consistency.
Next, add in the eggs, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, bananas, almond milk, and vanilla extract to the blender. Blend the mixture again for 20 – 30 seconds until fully combined. Do not over blend, or the muffins will not be fluffy!
Next, transfer the batter to a mixing bowl or keep it in the blender and use a spatula to gently fold in your chosen mix-in: either blueberries, chocolate chips, or walnuts. Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups and sprinkle extra blueberries, chocolate chips, or walnuts on top.
Bake the muffins for 22 – 24 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean and golden brown. Let cool before enjoying!
