5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Muffins

Where have these been all my life? These are delicious. And easy. Muffins in a blender?! Yes.

I was actually planning on making some other muffins – I will not say from what source – and they were a TOTAL AND COMPLETE FAIL. I hate failed recipes. They make me discouraged. They make me frustrated and angry. So. I calmly left these failed muffins, grossly molded to the muffin tin, there to deal with later.. and made these.

And oh holy moly was I excited. 5 ingredients. 1 blender. Unlimited future options.

Since these are all healthy ingredients (besides the sprinkles; and the honey is optional), these are basically like.. a fruit. Or a healthy bread. Or totally acceptable for breakfast, snacks, AND dessert. Did I mention they only make about 5 muffins? Aka all for you and no fears of overeating or worrying about them going bad before you finish them.

    Reblogged this on The Seated Cook and commented:
    I was excited to see this simple (no flour!) and delicious-looking muffin recipe posted, and made a batch of my own recently.
    I made mine with chocolate chips, and just stirred the ingredients rather than put them in a blender, but otherwise followed the recipe. They came out great!
