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!

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
