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?
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!
