We tried the Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950 Blender with one of our favorite, low-carb, gluten-free, and dairy-free muffin recipes. I want to tell you about both of them. Hamilton Beach sponsored this post, but the recipe is real and our opinions are our own. Plus, I have to share a great little story about what happened with this blender the day after we made our post.
Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950 Blender
Sometimes eating low-carb, gluten-free, and dairy-free can be hard. Not with these Peanut Butter Flourless Muffins! They are so good and just as easy to make. The batter can be simply made in your blender and you probably have all the ingredients at your fingertips right now.
I like to get up early and surprise our kids with these Peanut Butter Flourless Muffins in the morning. However, when I wake up to surprise the kids, I don’t want to wake them until after the muffins are ready. Enter the Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950 Blender; this thing is a game changer. With the Sound Shield 950, I can whip up a batch of these muffins and no one in the house is any the wiser as it is up to 55% quieter than traditional blenders and it has 5 speeds plus has 3 preset buttons for ease of use.

Peanut Butter Flourless Muffins
These muffins are moist, full of flavor and surprisingly fluffy for being made without flour. If you like, you can also add supplements to this batter such as whey protein to add a little extra nutrition, but they are great just they they are.
Back to the Peanut Butter Flourless Muffins. Pull out your Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950 Blender and add in your Peanut Butter, Ripe Banana, Egg, Honey, Vanilla, Baking Soda, and Salt.
Blend the ingredients together until the batter is smooth and creamy. Go ahead and really test out the blender… you won’t wake the kids.
Gently fold the mini chocolate chips into the batter by hand.
Pour your batter evenly into your mini muffin pan filling each mold to 3/4 full. This image shows how to bake them with and without the paper cups. Without the cups, we just spray non-stick spray on the pan.
If I remember, I like to sprinkle a couple extra mini chocolate chips on top before baking to make them look fancy. Clearly, this time I forgot! Bake in your preheated oven for 7-9 minutes until muffins are set and rounded on the top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. If you use muffin liners, it usually takes an extra minute or two to bake your peanut butter flourless muffins than if you just spray your pan.
Serve and enjoy. These usually don’t last a day in our house, but if you do find you have a few left over from the initial devouring, they will keep for about 5 days in a sealed container.
These easy to make flourless muffins are a big hit and can be made quickly!

A Funny Little Side Story
We made this post outside of our own house because my father has a much nicer kitchen and we thought the blender would look better in the pictures over there. So we had packed up all the ingredients, made our post, and then left to go to a school function with our second-grade son.
The class was learning about the pioneers and were making homemade butter and applesauce. Well, as it turned out, the butter project they did was working fine, but the applesauce was a bit chunky. The pot that was stewing the apples just didn’t have quite enough time to melt them down into sauce. The teachers’ problem was how could they process the applesauce without disrupting the class?
We told her we might have a solution to the applesauce problem. We ran out to the car with the blender and set it up in the corner of the room. We were able to quickly process the apples and hardly any child in the room had a clue we were there.
Thanks to the Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950, we saved the day! Within a few minutes, the kids were happily eating their applesauce.
