cherry blender muffins
easy blender muffin recipe using frozen or fresh cherries to provide a pop of color and surprise in the middle!
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 2 eggs
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup cherries fresh or frozen + 12 more cherries to pop into the middle of each muffin
preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin tin with baking spray
put all the ingredients except for 12 cherries into the blender
blend together until all ingredients are well incorporated and the oats are broken down a bit (1-2 minutes) - the batter will be on the thin side
pour the batter into the prepared muffin tin
plop a cherry into the middle of each muffin and push down just a bit
bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes
once done, let cool about 5 minutes in the pan, then move to a cooling rack to cool completely
these freeze really well. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 month. When you are ready to eat, leave out to defrost for 30 minutes, or microwave for 15-30 seconds.
these are a funny color, brown on the outside, purplish on the inside...don't be alarmed :)
these muffins will be beautifully domed when they come out of the oven, but will likely fall in a few minutes. this is totally normal.
