Servings 12 muffins


  • Blender
  • Muffin tin


  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup flavorless oil avocado or vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice or see sub in post
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp fine salt
  • 2 1/3 cups rolled oats gluten-free if desired
  • 1/4 cup optional toppings such as mini chocolate chips or chopped nuts


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners.
  • Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender in the order they are listed above. Blend until oats are finely ground and all ingredients are well incorporated. Scrape the sides and bottom of the blender one time and blend again for a few seconds to make sure all ingredients are mixed into the batter.
  • Fill prepared muffin tin with the batter using a scoop or a large spoon. Fill each muffin cup almost to the top. These muffins will rise a little then fall back down after baked. Top with any additional toppings as desired.
  • Bake until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer muffins to a cooling rack. Cool completely then enjoy.
