  • For Blendtec: Press the BATTERS button. If using FOURSIDE jar pour batter into dry ingredients and use a spatula to gently mix until just combined. If using WILDSIDE jar, you can now add the dry ingredients and pulse until combined. Place all ingredients into WILDSIDE jar in the order listed and secure lid. Press the BATTERS button three times, scraping the mixture inwards with a spatula before the last cycle.
