These ‘muffins’ are a staple in our house. My husband grabs them for breakfast on his way out the door, and my one-and-a-half year old daughter LOVES them (if they’re fresh she can easily polish-off 2 mini and 1 regular sized.) I’m hesitant to even call them muffins because the only thing they really have in common is the muffin tins in which they are cooked in—these are much more moist, delicious, nutritious, and gluten-free!
This recipe could not be easier to execute, and takes about 5 minutes to whip up once you’ve gathered the ingredients—perfect for the busy mama! They’re also a great way to use up the almond or coconut pulp that’s left-over from making milk.
I’ve never really followed a recipe when making these, but since a couple friends have been asking me for it, I finally decided to sit down and write it out, and now I’m ready to share! The perfect, filling snack for anytime of the day–I hope your whole family enjoys them as much as mine does!

Here you go, Alexis…
Delicious, nutritious and gluten-free, mock-muffins that the whole family will enjoy!
Put all ingredients in a blender (expect whatever optional ingredients you’re using) and blend until smooth—about 30 seconds. It should be about the same consistency as pancake batter
Stir in the optional ingredients. I usually use blueberries because they're my daughter’s favorite.
Pour into silicone muffin trays--the silicone makes it easy to pop these guys out after they're cooked.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Once cooked, do not take them out of the tray. Let them rest for 30 min—this gives them a chance to firm up.

Note: Unlike regular muffins, these don’t rise and get a fluffy “top”. Actually, don’t even compare them to muffins.
