Magical Blender Muffins
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 result? 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 anyways? We love the combination of whole grains, protein-rich eggs and yogurt as well. Top with your favorite ingredients, bake, and enjoy!

Chickpea Cookie Dough
Who doesn't love scraping cookie dough out of the bowl? Dairy-free, egg-free, and no-bake, this recipe can be enjoyed straight from the mixing bowl or frozen into cookie dough balls or bars. Even better, using blended chickpeas mixed with almond butter and sweetened with honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and dark chocolate chips keeps calories, fat, sodium, and sugar low while boosting protein and fiber. For an extra indulgent treat, drizzle them with melted chocolate and sprinkle flaked sea salt on top.
Greek Yogurt Bark
Acting as a blank canvas, this Greek yogurt bark can take on any flavor profiles you prefer. We chose strawberries, cacao nibs, hazelnuts, shredded coconut, and dried cherries. Make this ahead of time and always have it in your freezer for a fast, protein-packed snack, grab-and-go breakfast, or late-night treat. Simply mix yogurt, honey and vanilla extract. Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle desired toppings and freeze for at least an hour.
Maple Pumpkin Blender Muffins
Gluten-free, completely clean, and less than 100 calories per muffin. After discovering the magic of our blender muffins made with bananas, we had to see if they could work just the same with pumpkin instead. They were even better than we imagined—light, fluffy, full of pumpkin-spice flavor, and incredibly satisfying. While store-bought or café muffins can range from anywhere to 300-600 calories, and add more than 20g of fat, 70g of carbs, and 50g of sugar to your day, these magical muffins pack in almost 5g of protein for less than 100 calories, 3g of fat, 6g of sugar, and 16g of carbs.
A blend between frozen yogurt and ice cream, "nice" cream is the easiest and healthiest way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Made with just a frozen banana, your choice of milk, and any toppings, you'll never be limited to the ice cream flavors at the grocery store. What makes "nice" cream so sweet is the amount of calories and saturated fat you'll save instead of eating ice cream while still enjoying the familiar and comforting flavors of dessert.
