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!

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?
