Gingerbread Blender Muffins

Servings 12


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup milk or milk alternative
  • 2 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grab a 12 cup muffin tin and spray or grease each cup.
  • In a high powered blender, add eggs, brown sugar, molasses, Greek yogurt, almond butter, milk, oats, baking powder & soda, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and salt.
  • Blend. It. Up.
  • If you're adding chocolate chips, mix them in here by hand but save a few for the top of the muffins.
  • Pour evenly into muffins tins.
  • Bake for 18 - 22 minutes. Watch for muffins to start to pull away from the edge of the pan and brown on the side. Or, when a toothpick comes out of the center clean. Remove from oven. Remove from pan and allow to cool on a rack. Watch them - they get dry is you overbake them.
  • Enjoy warm! Store on the counter for 2 - 3 days, in the refrigerator for a week, or freeze for up to 3 months. Warm in the microwave for a couple seconds before you enjoy!


Other Thoughts
  • All the blender muffins use oats as the 'substance' of the muffins. This means they can very easily be made gluten free with gluten free oats, if needed. 
  • You can also make them dairy free with plant based yogurt.
  • And, we've have many people use flax eggs in the other blender muffin versions. I have to imagine it will work here too. 
  • If you don't have a blender, but you DO have a food processor, this will work. Process the oats first until they form a flour. Then, add the rest of the ingredients and process well. If your food processor isn't big enough for this - process the oats and stir in the rest in a large bowl. 
Athletes: Like all the other Blender Muffins - these make a great snack between solid meals. I've also had many clients toss two muffins into a bowl, pile it high with Greek yogurt, and add some fruit + almond butter drizzle for a solid meal. The options are endless! 
Healthy Eating: Who says healthy eating has to be boring?! Make yourself some blender muffins for a tasty snack that'll bring you some holiday cheer too. 
Kids: We got two big thumbs up over here from the 4 and 6 year olds for these blenders. They eat a chocolate banana blender muffin for 80% of their breakfasts, so I wasn't sure how a spicy addition would stack up. But, it did! Smith says they're better without chocolate chips. Sloane says 'moooore chocolate chips.' Let me know if you're team Smith or Sloane!
