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!
    • yes you can throw the beets in the oven and roast them yourself!
  • 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?
  • If this is 6 "mini" muffins, how many regular sized muffins do you think it would be? Maybe 3?
    • 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?
    • Any egg replacement would work! Flax egg would work!
  • If I don't have any flax seeds will the recipe still work?
    • 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.
  • I don’t have flax either. Is there something you could suggest as a sub? Thanks!
  • What is the suggested product to grease the muffin tin?
    • You can use whatever your preferred method is!
  • Can you make this using canned beets instead of roasted beets?
    • We actually haven't tried that before. Canned beets may add a little too much moisture. If you do try, give them a good pat down to try to remove that extra moisture.
  • Where is the recipe? Would love to try these.
    • Thank you for letting us know! The recipe should be restored now!
