Butterscotch Banana Oat Blender Muffins

If you’ve got bananas constantly going bad on you, you’ve got to try these blender muffins! I personally don’t like bananas when they aren’t green anymore so I’m making blender muffins on the regular or throwing bananas in the freezer for smoothies.

Recipe notes

  • If you don’t have a food processor or blender, you can swap the 2 cups of oats for a cup and a half of oat flour (which you could make with a coffee grinder) or regular white or whole wheat flour.

Fueling notes

  • Per muffin, this recipe packs 25 g of carbs, 3 g of protein, and 8 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 ~3-5 grams of protein (for that 3-4:1 ratio of carbs to protein) within 1-2 hours of your session

The Stuff

  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups oats 
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips
  • Extra oats to sprinkle

The Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Put all ingredients (except butterscotch chips) in a food processor
  3. Blend for a minute or two until smooth
  4. Pour the batter into greased or lined muffin cups and sprinkle with butterscotch chips and extra oats. You can also use 13×9 Pyrex or bread pan as well!
  5. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
  6. Cool and then store covered in the fridge (these also keep well frozen)
