This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

The perfect way to start the day. Get a batch of these made up, then grab and go on those mornings when you’re in a rush. Free from dairy and eggs, these muffins are gooey in the middle and the walnuts give a lovely crunch on the outside. The freshly baked smell of these will fill your kitchen with pure deliciousness.
