Pumpkin Spice Carrot Blender Muffins

These nutritious unsweetened muffins are mixed in a blender, poured into muffin liners, and baked for a healthy, seasonal muffin that is just sweet enough, thanks to ripe bananas. These firm muffins are meal prep friendly and can be packed as a breakfast or on-the-go snack! 

Pumpkin Spice Carrot Blender Muffins

If you know me, you know I love my blender muffins! But seriously, these muffins have been such a blessing with my picky toddler Luca. Some weeks, it feels like he won’t touch a single vegetable, but I know that he’ll crush a full batch of my blender muffins and that’s multiple servings of vegetables!

If you have a picky toddler or if you’re just looking for something new to make and serve to your little ones (or yourself – they’re one of my favorite snacks!), you’ll love these seasonal blender muffins, made with pumpkin spice, because…. well, fall = pumpkin spice, right?

Pumpkin Spice Carrot Blender Muffins

The key here is really finding ripe bananas, so they’re sweet and add that needed sweetness to the muffins. These are meal prep friendly, packable, and honestly, there’s always about a dozen in my freezer!

I love these muffins slathered with nut butter or sun butter and served with a side of fruit for breakfast. Flaxseed, oats, eggs, and a veggie, these are the kind of muffins that make you feel like a supermama!

For an extra spin, pour the batter into a sheetpan, bake them, and use cookie cutters to make fun shapes! Or, add some chocolate chips and serve these as a healthy dessert! Heck, stick a birthday candle in them!

What would you substitute for the eggs if you wanted it a vegan recipe. Applesauce?
Meaghan says:
any vegan egg substitute will do! Flax egg even!
Teri says:
Any way I could add crushed pineapple? Adding more dry to counteract the extra liquid?
Meaghan says:
We haven't given that a go but we certainly encourage experimenting. If you do add it in let us know how it goes!

Can somebody fix this recipe? Some time in the last week, the "recipe" section has changed from being the Muffin recipe at the top of the page to a butternut squash recipe. I'm sure this is a simple error that someone can easily fix, but I was hoping to make these muffins- and can't find the recipe!
Meaghan says:
We are working on getting this fixed. Thanks for the heads up!
Rachel Tsadok says:
Hi! New to your website and printing out some of your awesome recipes! Which rolled oats do you buy? Can I use Quaker quick oats? Thanks!
Meaghan says:
You can use whatever you have on hand!
Lindsay B says:
Followed the directions but they didn’t turn out. Any thoughts on what went wrong? Over blending? I cooked an additional 5 minutes and they were still thin and undercooked sticking to the muffin liners.

Meaghan says:
It's possible no enough oats were used! Maybe give that shot!!!

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...
