Beet and Oat Banana Muffins

Beet and Oat Banana Muffins

These 5-ingredient blender muffins are a busy mom’s favorite – they’re easy to make (literally put everything into a blender and then pour into muffin tins!), freezable, portable, and packed with important nutrients for your little one.

These are totally customizable and small batch, so they’re meant to be made for just a week of breakfasts (or snacks!)

And if your little one loves nut butter, slice into pieces and spread a thin layer of peanut butter on top for added protein, texture, and flavor. If you’re an adult, add globs of nut butter!

The beet here adds a lovely pinkish flavor, more nutrients, and a little hint of sweetness! And an added bonus: you don’t need to worry about your baby’s fingers reddening from touching beets!

Beet and Oat Banana Muffins

These are very customizable too – the batter can actually be used as pancakes, if you want to switch it up. If you’re doing baby led weaning, make sure to slice into strips!

Or, you can switch up the veggie – just use the same amount of veggie (butternut squash, kabocha squash, or sweet potato could work really well too!)

Hope you give these a muffins a try! They’ve become a staple in our household (and I love snacking on them too – with that glob of nut butter, of course!)

thanks for sharing your recipes! I've tried quite a few for my extremely picky two year old. Do you roast the beets yourself? Making this for the first time tonight and didn't realize the recipe called for roasted beets. just peeled and threw them in the oven. fingers crossed!
Carly Glazer says:
yes you can throw the beets in the oven and roast them yourself!
Melissa says:
looking forward to trying these! How do we know how much 1oz of beet is with no food scale? Will a 1/4 cup of roasted beet work?
Stephanie says:
If this is 6 "mini" muffins, how many regular sized muffins do you think it would be? Maybe 3?
Meaghan says:
It definitely depends on the size of the tin but yes 3-4 larger muffins.

Hi! I would love to try this simple recipe! I like simple food :-) However I don’t eat eggs. Anything I could replace them with?
Meaghan says:
Any egg replacement would work! Flax egg would work!
Anonymous says:
If I don't have any flax seeds will the recipe still work?
Meaghan says:
We actually haven't given that a try before but it should work! If you give it a go, let us know how it comes out.
Sharlenne says:
I don’t have flax either. Is there something you could suggest as a sub? Thanks!
Meaghan says:
Chia seeds work as well!
Nicole says:
What is the suggested product to grease the muffin tin?
Meaghan says:
You can use whatever your preferred method is!
So pretty and yummy looking!
Meaghan says:
That's so kind! Thanks!
Rachel says:
Can you make this using canned beets instead of roasted beets?
Meaghan says:
We actually haven't tried that before. Canned beets may add a little too much moisture. If you do try, give them a good pat down to try to remove that extra moisture.

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
