Flourless Chocolate Blender Muffins

Soft and healthy chocolate blender muffins for breakfast or snack.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 12 minutes
Yield 8 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 can black beans, or 1 1/2 cup cooked (for keto, try these Keto Muffins)
  • 1/3 cup mashed overripe banana, applesauce, or sweet potato
  • 1/3 cup quick or rolled oats, or 1/2 cup almond meal (or flour of choice, excluding coconut)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of choice or allergy-friendly sub
  • 3-5 tbsp mini chocolate chips, not optional – omit at own risk
  • 2 tbsp regular cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp dutch cocoa powder, or additional regular
  • 2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda

Instructions

  • *If you’re a visual learner like I am, be sure to watch the recipe video above!
    Preheat oven to 350 F and line 8-9 muffin cups. Drain beans and rinse extremely well, then pat dry. This is important because it gets rid of any bean flavor. Blend all ingredients except chips until smooth in a blender or high-quality food processor. (If using a blender with no tamper, stop occasionally to stir ingredients with a spoon so they blend evenly.) Stir in mini chips. Portion into the muffin cups – don’t overfill or they will rise and then sink in the centers. Add chips to top if desired. Bake 12 minutes. They will look underdone, which is what you want. Transfer the muffins to a container and cover overnight in the fridge. They firm up perfectly!  As with the non-chocolate version, these muffins are supposed to be super fudgy, not fluffy and floury like traditional muffins. Not everyone will love the texture, but if you like the original version, you will probably like these as well! Muffins last 3-4 days refrigerated or 2-3 weeks frozen.
