The ingredients are Whole 30 compliant, but combining them into a muffin is not compliant to the Whole30 philosophy. These are also a great post Whole30 muffin, or great with Paleo or gluten free diets. These Banana Almond Butter muffins are a huge hit with the entire family (special dietary meal plan or not!).

Banana Almond Butter Muffins in the Blender
Banana Almond Butter Muffins Recipe
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
- 1 cup almond butter
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tsp. baking soda (I updated this from 1/2 tsp. because I found they raise better)
- Optional: I like to add 1/2 tsp. of salt
Blend (if using a Blendtec blender I use the “Smoothie ” setting)
Grease muffin tin (we like to use Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil spray)
Pour batter into muffin tins
Cook for 12-15 minutes (muffins should be fluffy all of the way through and should not sink or settle)
Enjoy! We like to lay the Kerry Gold butter on THICK!
(I adapted this recipe from Thirty Handmade Days Mini Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins. Check them out – also super delicious!)

Similar recipe with my favorite secret ingredient! I love the texture and flavor of these muffins. They stay moist for days. Check out the recipe HERE.

Blendtec Blender Review
I was skeptical. How much could you really love a blender? The answer is a lot. Like really – more than a friend.
Here’s what I love:
- It’s digital. When fire it up the Blender takes you through a tour of the machine. It’s also intuitive to use.
- The settings! There are preset settings for Smoothies, Ice Cream, Soup, Whole Juice, Salsa . . . just press the button and it will work it’s magic!
- It can do, well, everything. Those settings I just outlined can knead bread, juice whole foods, chop nuts and cheese (dry chop), grind soaked grains and meats (wet chop), make ice cream, blend and heat soup, and of course . . . it blends things.
- There is a “Clean Cycle”! Just dump in 1 cup of water with a drop of dish soap, hit clean and it will take care of itself.
- It keeps track of how many times I’ve blended! Congratulations on your first blend! There are incentives for certain milestones built in!
- The spatula. I mean a spatula is a spatula right? But the one that comes with the Twister is the most amazing spatula I’ve ever used. It’s a silly thing to be pumped about – but I think you’ll see what I mean if you ever use one. It scrapes the sides of the blender perfectly.
- The Twister Jar perfect for homemade nut butters. We spend a fortune on almond butter and the fancy Jason’s nut butter mixes. I’ve got a couple of recipes I’m dying to try all ready. I’ll be back with a new post soon!
