Blender Banana Nut Muffins

These easy Banana Nut Muffins are made in a blender, flourless, and a tasty portable breakfast or snack. They’re meal-prep friendly and packed with protein and vitamins, thanks to ingredients like eggs, veggies, and Bob’s Red Mill’s Rolled Oats and Flaxseed Meal.

Blender Banana Nut Muffins

Welcome to muffin week! In partnership with Bob’s Red Mill, we’ve brought you FOUR new muffin recipes, based off of my smash hit blender muffins (you can find the original recipe here) and now we’re ending with the fifth recipe for Luca’s personal favorite, Blender Banana Nut Muffins.

As a parent, you’re constantly making decisions that affect the whole family. Choosing real, whole, and premium ingredients to use in my meals for my family is one decision that’s easy. If you have been following me through my main Inspiralized channel, then you know I’m a huge Bob’s Red Mill fan and now, as a mother of two, I feel even better about the ingredients I use in my cooking, thanks to Bob’s.

These blender muffins have a super easy base recipe: 1oz (or about 1/3 cup) of cooked vegetable, 2 eggs, 1 banana, 3 tablespoons of Bob’s Red Mill Organic Rolled Oats and 1 tablespoon of Bob’s Red Mill Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal. And to note, make sure the banana is very ripe. Not browned and bruised, but ripe, so that the muffins are sweet enough, since there is no other sweetness added.

Blender Banana Nut Muffins

So technically these blender muffins are banana muffins, because the ingredients literally include a banana, but stirring in nuts and adding that extra slice of heavenly banana on top seals the deal as a Banana Nut flavor. Also, my son is obsessed with bananas, so whenever he sees these with the banana on top, he gets very excited – and it’s a fun way to sneak in nuts without worrying about choking hazards (make sure you really finely chop up those nuts!)

You can make these extra special by stirring some chocolate chips into the final batter to make these Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins, but I think they’re perfect as is! I hope you’ve enjoyed muffin week here on the blog and if you make the muffins, please use the hashtag #inspiralizedmuffinweek so we can share!

and since we all appreciate a good lu review, he thought these were buffalo chicken wraps when I first served them to him! 😜 ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! 🙌🏼⁣

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

Ingredients⁣
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Directions⁣
Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
