Make These Healthy Chocolate Banana Flax Muffins in a Blender

Last week I made some incredibly indulgent breakfast muffins almost by accident. I was in the mood for chocolate cake (pregnancy problems at 7 am), but wanted something more nutritious and not full of sugar. Then these healthy chocolate banana flax muffins were born! And I made them in my blender! In under 10 minutes!

You Have to Try These Chocolate Banana Flax Muffins in a Blender

Why I haven’t been making things in my blender until lately is beyond me. The mess is much less, and it’s simply waaayyy more convenient. If you’re in the market for a high-quality blender and have yet to bite the bullet, I recommend getting a Vitamix. (And no, I am not being paid to say that.) I have the Vitamix Ascent A2500, and it’s awesome.

Now, muffins can be a bit tricky. If you over mix them, they are tough. And if you over bake them even in the slightest, they can be too dry. Make sure you are paying careful attention to how much you pulse them and babysit them while they bake in the oven. My oven takes about 14-15 minutes to bake these chocolate banana flax muffins, but yours might take 12-14 minutes. You want a toothpick to barely come clean. Note that they will continue to set up and bake for a couple minutes after you pull them from the oven, too.

I realize these muffins look extremely decadent and rich. And full of evil sugar and fatty ingredients. But they are refined sugar-free and include wholesome ingredients! Can you even believe it? I still can’t! Also, if you’re in the market for some yummy, refined sugar-free chocolate chips, I use these.

Now, quit muffin around and go make these for breakfast for the week. Grab the recipe below and enjoy.
