A blender, a pan, and a plan, and you’ve got pillowy muffins ready to be devoured in a 15-minute snap. We’ve been seeing different types of blender muffins pop up all over Pinterest, so we thought we’d give it a try.

The results are good, delicious even, and most-importantly completely, kid-friendly. They do not have the typical texture of muffins, but with the increasing variety of muffin recipes out there now, what really is the definition of a typical anyway?

We love the combination of whole grains, protein-rich eggs and yogurt as well. Top with your favorite ingredients, bake, and enjoy! Our favorites included the cinnamon-apple, strawberry-chocolate chip, and the almond-chocolate chip. (Can you tell we like chocolate?)
