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!!!
Albertina says:
This recipe is easy to make and very delicious! I have already made it 5 times in 2 weeks. I would have given you 10 stars if it was possible.

Does this recipe use pumpkin puree or just pumpkin spice? When I look at it the recipe doesn't show pumpkin puree as an ingredient.
Meaghan says:
It uses pumpkin spice!
Nikita says:
What can I substitute for bananas? Thanks! I love your baby blender muffins!
Meaghan says:
Sometimes apple sauce can be used as a substitute - we haven't tried this, so if you do, please let us know how it comes out!

the soup that broke the internet! 😜🥣haha, just kidding, but after posting this on stories, my DMs were flooded with, "share the recipe!" and then dozens of you made the soup solely based off my story videos (which is why I shared it!)⁣ 👏🏼

I'm still deep in the newborn fog to take proper photos and build an SEO-friendly blog post (it's an hours-long process), so I'm sharing it here in the meantime - just save it to refer back to! you're going to want to make this alllll winter long.⁣ ❄️

potato and brussels sprouts white bean soup w/ or w/o chicken sausage⁣ 👇🏼
serves 4-6

ingredients⁣
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
1/2 red onion, diced⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
2 carrots, diced⁣
1 large celery rib, diced⁣
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme⁣
4 cups vegetable broth (I'm using @bonafideprovisions and it's honestly a game-changer! code INSPIRALIZED for 15% off!)⁣
salt and pepper⁣
1 1/2 pound bag creamer potatoes, halved⁣
1 pound chicken sausage, sliced⁣
12 ounces shredded brussels sprouts⁣
shredded Parmesan cheese (I'm loving @foragerproject's vegan Parmesan shreds)⁣
red pepper flakes to garnish⁣

directions⁣
heat half the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. add the onion, garlic, carrots, and celery and cook for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. add the cannellini beans, rosemary, thyme, and stir. add the broth, 2 cups water, and season generously with salt and pepper. bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. use an immersion blender to blend the soup. add the potatoes, bring back to a boil, and reduce heat to a medium-simmer and let cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.⁣

while potatoes cook, heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. add the chicken sausage and cook until browned. add the brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until sprouts are tender and chicken is cooked through. keep aside. if you're vegetarian, just simply omit chicken sausage.⁣

once potatoes are done, add the chicken and sprouts to the soup, stir, and serve. top with cheese and red pepper flakes.
