Blender Chocolate Chip Beet Muffins

Welcome to muffin week! In partnership with Bob’s Red Mill, we’re bringing you FIVE new muffin recipes, based off of my smash hit blender muffins (you can find the original recipe here.)

As a parent, you’re constantly making decisions that affect the whole family. Choosing real, whole, and premium ingredients to use in my meals for my family is one decision that’s easy. If you have been following me through my main Inspiralized channel, then you know I’m a huge Bob’s Red Mill fan and now, as a mother of two, I feel even better about the ingredients I use in my cooking, thanks to Bob’s.

Blender Chocolate Chip Beet Muffins

These blender muffins have a super easy base recipe: 1oz (or about 1/3 cup) of cooked vegetable, 2 eggs, 1 banana, 3 tablespoons of Bob’s Red Mill Organic Rolled Oats and 1 tablespoon of Bob’s Red Mill Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal. And to note, make sure the banana is very ripe. Not browned and bruised, but ripe, so that the muffins are sweet enough, since there is no other sweetness added.

My favorite version of blender muffins in general is ones made with beets. There’s something extra delicious about adding beets, and I don’t eat enough of them outside of these muffins (they’re messy and kind of a hard vegetable to fit into your diet unless you’re making big salads.) And, to save myself so much time, I use pre-cooked organic beets (I love the Love Beets brand.)

I’ve added vegan chocolate chips here to add extra sweetness and look like a sweet treat, when really they’re a nutritious, protein and veggie packed muffin!

  • Need substitute for eggs and oats. Could you use chia eggs and quinoa?
    • Definitely give it a try! Those are great substitutes. We haven't tried those yet so please let us know how it comes out!
  • How many muffins does this recipe make?
  • So good! I made a double batch to have in the fridge for snacks and breakfast. Can’t wait to try more blender muffins recipes!
  • Can you use frozen beets?
    • We haven't tried that yet but give it a shot! It should work fine!
  • Can you sub golden beets for red beets?
    • We haven't tried that yet! If you do go for it, let us know how it comes out. It should work the same!
  • Hi! I’ve made a few of your blender muffin recipes and they’re all great. I cook for the amount of time you suggest and they definitely look cooked when I take them out. The only thing is the inside is very wet. Is this normal?
    • They will be more moist because of the use of real veggies!
