Another week, another blender muffin recipe!
Seriously, I am on a roll and there’s no signs of stopping! I can’t believe baking a few batches of deliciousness every weekend wasn’t my norm a month or two ago.
I guess I’m going to have to transition to frozen yogurt bars once the warmer weather hits, but I’m going to ride out this baking wave as long as I can.
My favorite thing about breakfast muffins or breads or cookies is how easy they are to make and how they make meal planning that much easier. I need a lot of snacks, and having these around is one less thing I have to put together the day of. Plus they are so yummy!
- This is a blender muffin recipe but if you don’t have a food processor, you can use 1.5 cups of regular flour (or your own homemade oat flour) and mix everything in a bowl! You can make ~1.5 cups of oat flour by blending 2 cups of oats in a food processor until find and powdery.
- Per muffin, this recipe packs 28 g of carbs, 3 g of protein, and 6 g of fat, and 2 g of fiber
- Pre-workout: eat these in the hour leading up to your session. If more than an hour before, pair with some extra protein/fat (like a cheese stick, nut butter, yogurt, etc) to keep you satisfied.
- Post-workout: pair each muffin with ~5 grams of protein (for that 3-4:1 ratio of carbs to protein) within 1-2 hours of your session
- 1 cup pumpkin purée
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- ⅓ cup plain Greek Yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 cups of oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon cloves
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ½ cup raisins
- Oats to sprinkle on muffins
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease muffin tin (you can also make this in a 13×9 Pyrex or bread pan)
- Put all ingredients except the raisins and extra oats into food processor and blend until smooth
- Once done blending, stir in raisins (you can also fill the muffin cups halfway full, add a sprinkle of raisins, and then top them off—up to you!)
- Scoop batter into muffin tin and sprinkle with oats
- Bake for ~25-30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool on rack before removing from pan. Then store in an airtight container or freeze

When I first started working at Yale New Haven Hospital, I was eating some pretty boring breakfasts. I needed something quick that I could pack the night before and eat in the atrium a few minutes before starting my day. I was packing things like dry shredded wheat (*cringe*) and cold oatmeal (*double cringe*). WellContinue reading “Apple Breakfast Bread”
