If you’ve tried any of my blender muffins (Spinach or Beet), you probably make them on repeat and you’re looking for other veggies and flavors to incorporate in your littles ones’ diets. Of all the recipes I’ve ever published (including the ones on Inspiralized), I think that these blender muffins are my most popular.

Why? They’re so easy! Literally, these blender muffins are made in a blender – all of the ingredients are combined in a blender, poured into muffin tins, baked for under 25 minutes, and enjoyed by all.

The key to these muffins is the banana. The banana has to be nice and ripe (even overripe works), because it gives these muffins that sweetness that our little ones naturally yearn for. This makes it easier to introduce new veggies like spinach, beet, or here, carrot.

With these blender muffins, I’ve included the delicious flavors of carrot cake that’s guaranteed to make your little ones experiment with carrots, if they haven’t yet.

You can make these into a dessert by topping with some chocolate chips before baking in the oven. Or, for a snack, I love smothering them in some almond butter. Otherwise, Luca enjoys them mostly at breakfast time. They’re so quick – I start them at 7:15am and by 7:45am, he’s eating them!

I added a sprinkle of pecans on top (finely chopped to avoid any choking hazards) to give the muffins a new texture and add some healthy fats. It’s also a tasty way to test allergens!

Tell me – does your little one love these blender muffins as much as Luca does?

  • Hi Ali, could we have a pin button for recipe. I found it finally on your pinterest page after a lot of hunting. Thanks. Lucy
  • Just discovered your website and I want to try out some of your recipes for my son, Luca. Just one quick question. I don’t have flaxseed. Can I just leave it out or should I replace it with something else. If so, what?
  • My toddler loves these, so I guess that makes them a success, but I could NOT eat them myself! They were much too bland and soggy for my taste.
    • So happy to hear they love them!
  • Made mine. They came out tasting delicious but on the darker side. I made some tweaks so thinking that it may have been that. Toddler loved it now just to have 7 month old try them.
  • So delicious! Natural sugar, just those simple ingredients. Made these 3 times
    • Yes! We love simple recipes!
  • My toddler loves these, and I'm glad to have a sugar free option for her. Bonus: I think they taste disgusting, so I don't touch her supply.
    • Haha, happy to hear she's loving them!
  • I made these today the kids ate them I put some cream cheese frosting on them to make them more appealing and that did the trick.
    • They're such a great treat! Way to go!
  • I’ve made these a couple times and really enjoy them. But they do fall pretty flat once they’ve cooled- any thoughts/suggestions on adding a leavener?
    • We haven't given that a shot but we always encourage experimenting to find the right consistency for you! Let us know if you give it a try.
  • Do these need to be refrigerated? Today is day 3 (I made them Tuesday and today is Friday) and they taste rancid today! I tried them when they were fresh and my infant and I loved them! I’m new to baking but I’m not sure why they’re bad today. Advice?
    • Hi! This is great question. Yes! Because of those fresh ingredients you want to refrigerate to keep them as fresh as possible!
