How is my blueberry muffin? 

How is my humpty dumpty? 

That is how one of my auntie’s would refer to my sister and I growing up. 

Ten guesses as to who was the blueberry muffin and who was the humpty dumpty. 

Sure, I was quite the chumbster as a kid. However, I’m pretty sure I never sat on a wall.

Walls are too uncomfortable.

It’s all about the bass couches.

Anyway, this aunty of mine who gave us these ‘affectionate’ names were not on my list of favourite family members. Besides giving us ridiculous nicknames, she had a warped concept of fun. I remember Niki and I dreading the school holidays when my aunty would force offer to spend a day with us. Before you think these days involved trips to the park, eating fish and chips on the beach or reading stories- Think again.

Instead of trips to the park- We tripped over her garden picking out weeds. 

Instead of eating fish and chips- We ate soups….in Summer. 

Instead of reading stories- We learnt how to read…in Chinese. 

Blueberry muffin and humpty Dumpty were not impressed. When we complained to our mum, we were told off for being disrespectful. Lose/Lose situation.

While I have an aversion to the name blueberry muffin, the edible form of it- I’m all game.

Today’s recipe paired perfectly with this month’s Recipe Redux theme which involves using up your pantry items.

As I’m about to embark on an international move, cleaning out my pantry has been one of my main endeavours. You may have noticed an increase in recipes involving the same base with multiple variations. Case in point- The easy couscous paella and the Greek Couscous Salad. Also, there has been the healthy Apple Cinnamon Rice Pudding and the healthy Tiramisu Rice pudding.

Why is it always the grains which are the last things utilised from the pantry?

 Well today’s pantry find were blueberries. Dried blueberries.

While I won’t be officially changing my blog name to ‘The No Bake Boy’, I’ll embrace the traits and continue the trend with…..another no bake recipe. After the poll I asked on Facebook and on Monday’s post, there was a clear winner- These No Bake Blueberry Muffin energy balls

These healthy no bake blueberry muffin energy balls taste exactly like blueberry muffin batter- Doughy, sweet and sinfully satisfying! Compared to their baked counter parts, this no bake version is much healthier and the perfect snack between meals or if you like, a small batch for a meal in itself! High in protein, vegan and gluten free, most bases are covered. I also tried a batch out which is completely paleo too! Both delicious, both like blueberry batter, no complaints. 

As always, when it comes to a gluten free baking blend, I stand by the several options offered from Gluten Free Mama– Use it in all my recipes for the consistent outcome across the board. It can be bought via their online store, through their Facebook store or even though Amazon. It is available in over 15,000 stores, including some outside of the US.

  1. Mmm blueberry muffin is my favroite kind, right next to apple cinnamon, banana walnut & lemon poppyseed…ah how can you make me choose just one favourite ! It’s funny, I always buy raisins, dried apricots & dried cranberries but never even thought to look out for dried blueberries. As soon as I get my hands on a packet, I know what I’ll be making- these look great buddy!

    PS I think I’m going to hang on to the ‘Blueberry Muffin’ nickname- it’s rather endearing ;)!

  2. Not going to lie, it is kind of badass to read in Chinese. And maybe she called you Humpty Dumpty because she knew you would be a) such a stud and b) a foodie and c) you were egg-cellent.
    Blueberry muffins have to be one of the most nostalgic American foods, period. Especially with the crumb topping. gah. sooooo good.

  3. You are definitely a creative genius!! I looove blueberry muffins..think I’ll make these today. Travel safely!!!

  4. My aunt also had nicknames for me and my cousins…I was Cupcake (often shortened to Cups), one cousin was Punky, and the other was Sweet Pea. And actually she’ll still sometimes call us by those nails. I don’t really think too much of it until someone unfamiliar is nearby and then I realize it’s kinda weird to call a 25-year-old Cupcake. Haha.

  5. Haha I’ve decided I’m going to be the crazy aunt for my 5-year old niece. Once she’s old enough I can’t wait to put her to work in my garden!
    My last name is Scallion, so all my friends in college used to call me Onion. Not a flattering nickname at all, but I couldn’t get them to stop.

  6. Woohooo! This means that I won the Facebook contest! #Right …or was it #Left? Either way, I’m all about the blueberries, too. Blueberry muffins have long been a morning favorite of mine…and I’m digging the energy ball version you created here. Hmmm…collecting dust in my pantry right now? I’d say several spice blends that I picked up along the way. I love spice blends, but they’re difficult to use when trying to write up a recipe since I don’t know the exact proportions of spices that went into said blends. Also, my nickname in college was Diggity. Not sure exactly why. It just was. Glad that one fell by the wayside.

  7. My grandpa used to call me, “Bridget Gidget”…
    My mom STILL calls me “Little Bridget”
    I have canned green chilies collecting dust in my pantry. I haven’t needed them in a while, and it’s kind of driving me crazy.
    My favorite muffin is definitely banana nut!

  8. These look delicious! Your photos always make me drool, it’s not very attractive haha. Aww I feel your pain with that aunt of yours, my nana is like that too! For Christmas one time she gave me women’s weeklys from the year dot…. the usual no present situation was preferable!

  9. These look awesome and the fact that they’re no bake is amazing! I just want to pop and handful of these bad boys in my mouth. On a side note, your auntie reminds of character out of a Roald Dahl story 🙂

  10. Blueberry is my favorite Muffin <3 I am going to try these for our "road trip" on Friday. I guess it sweetens the 7+ hours in the car 😛 As a child I had all kinds of silly nicknames but luckily not one of them stuck.

  11. hahaha so whenever someone is complaining to me about something, my response is usually “awww, muffin!” Maybe I need to start throwing ‘blueberry’ in there too?

    As for something collecting dust in my pantry – my almond flour. I haven’t used it in forever! I guess I just haven’t been baking much lately?

    1. Hahaha do it. You better call me muffin when you come to NYC. We can even meet outside the Magnolia Bakery!

      I read on a blog that they sprinkle almond flour on their toast and it’s ‘just like peanut butter.’ Gross.

  12. You know I’m a fan of anything with fruit in it. I love the sound of these balls, er I mean bites.

    I need to tackle my pantry items before the CSA season kicks off and I’ll about produce. I just so happen to have like 20 bottles of oils and vinegars, not to mention all those grains. 🙂

      1. 1) Lettuce smoothies happened out of sheer desperation. You get that much lettuce; you’ll try anything.

        2) I’ve been making and guzzling smoothies since I’ve been blogging, long before it was cool to do so. The chocolate ones and sharing a recipe is new though. I’ll give you that.

  13. Blueberry muffin is seriously my favorite flavor of anything! Like to the point where i would have my dad drop off a bakery blueberry muffin for me practically every morning before school =l probably not the best choice for a daily occurrence. Andddddd I’ve had to change my schedule to be able to workout in the mornings and searching for something quick (yet still delicious and breakfasty) that i can grab at 530 AM and hold me over 😉 Aka I think i need to make these this weekend.. as well as some rice pudding.. and oatmeals.. and no bake cookies. p.s. how did you get your balls to stand on top of each other.. NO PUNS INTENDED. I’m mesmerized.

  14. Haha lame nicknames? Well my last name is Lehocky so so many people said things like “LeBasketball” and “LeSoccer” and dumb stuff like that. My dad called me pumpkin head because my head is so big 🙂 I love blueberry muffins! And as we’re getting into summer (kinda?) blueberries are getting in season and I can’t wait.

  15. THEEEESE look so good. I need to get some dried blueberries asap! I’ve been wanting to try them, but have been a little worried that the entire would just “mysteriously disappear” in a short amount of time.
    My aunt used to make big long nicknames for me like “Loua Leah Hucka Lucka” then add on like ten more rhymes. I also got “Leah Leah Ballerina” a lot even though I don’t dance and couldn’t if I tried.

  16. The nickname my mum used/uses still will stay a secret for as long as possible. It was embarrassing enough when she called me that way in front of my whole class in 6th grade.
    Dried blueberries are one of the few kinds of dried fruit I actually enjoy so safe to say you created a balling recipe here 😉 .
    My favourite kind of muffin is worth mentioning because it’s still the most requested in my family: chocolate with a sweet cream cheese filling and obviously covered in chocolate.

  17. I think you should thank your aunt for teaching you to read in Chinese! That’s very cool. But the making you pick weeds, not cool at all.

    These look really good. Dried blueberries must be in right now because I just drooled over another recipe with them.

  18. These look fantastic! I’m thinking I might try making a batch with the dried cranberries in the cupboard that I can’t seem to use up elsewhere. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  19. Humpty dumpty LOL. Wouldn’t have been my favorite nickname either. I ran xc and track in college and one year one of my teammates and I came back with a few extra pounds (mind you, we definitely were still plenty skinny) and our coach called us the Double Bubble Twins. My teammate was quite offended, I laughed. It was kind of funny. Anyway, your muffin energy balls look fabulous!

  20. What?!! To make children work in the garden during their summer vacations? It’s…it’s….it’s outrageously cruel! I’m that impressed with this fact that I’m speechless now:) Needless to mention, the muffin bolls look great (even though I don’t like protein powder). Good job!

  21. My mom used to call me sausage if that makes you feel any better.
    My friend just told me that he hates blueberry muffins, so we’re not friends anymore. Just kidding, but seriously, how could you hate them!? I’m a fan of blueberry, corn, pumpkin, and banana muffins. So any muffin except chocolate chip.

  22. YUM’d! This looks delicious. A definite must try! Please come share your blog posts over at the Home Matters Linky Party! We’d love to have you for a visit. The Door OPENS tonight at 9pm Pacific Time. 🙂

  23. How many balls does this recipe make?!
    and to answer your question my nickname growing up from my dad was pumpkin.. don’t ask me why but I still to this day get called it! Favorite muffin has to be the Tim Hortons fruit explosion, so much fruit in one muffins, amazing.

  24. Looks great, especially for foodies like myself who don’t have easy access to an oven. Is it possible to use banana in this recipe without making the mixture too moist or crumbly?

  25. These look great! And I Will probably make them, and I love your art and photography. But I had to close three different pop-ups and an autoplay video with sound. I know you want to monetize, but that’s too much! I probably won’t be back. I’m sorry, but that’s too much trouble to go through.

  26. I love that you have a paleo option for this recipe! That is where my question comes in though…should there be nut butter in the paleo recipe?
    Love your site 🙂

      1. Thanks Arman. I realize that and would not have made it this far in my paleo journey had it not been for nut butters! Cashew is my personal fav. Your paleo version of this recipe doesn’t list nut butter and I didn’t know if that was just a slip or intentional. Thanks for all these wonderful recipes! Happy Eating 🙂

  27. Do you know the nutrition information and serving size for these? I’m a big meal prep person so this would help me to portion for the week
