Servings 12 muffins


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree <canned pumpkin>
  • 1/2 cup non dairy milk <can use cows milk too>
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cup oats <quick or old fashioned>
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar <can decrease to 1/4 cup, if you want>
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, <use non dairy, if needed & save a few chips for the top of the muffins>


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 12 muffin tins.
  • Place all the ingredients except chocolate chips in a high powered blender. Place it order listed for best blending. <If you don't have a high powdered, high volume blender - separate into two batches.> Blend well. Turn off blender and scrap down sides as needed until blended smoothly.
  • Remove blender from base. Stir in chocolate chips, saving a few for the top of the muffins.
  • Pour or spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins. Fill the muffin tins 3/4 of the way full.
  • Top with a few more chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 22 - 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle of the largest muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan. Place on cooling rack to cool completely before storing. Store in the refrigerator for a week or the freezer for up to 3 months. <Pop in the microwave to warm before enjoying!>


Other Thoughts
  • Highly recommend freezing these as soon as they cool - and microwaving for 30 seconds before you eat them. 
  • I have not tried these without eggs. I can imagine they would be quite dense with 3 flax eggs substituted, but if you try it - let me know! 
  • Old fashioned or quick oats both work just fine. 
Athletes: So many possibilities - those 12 muffins will be gone in no time! Perfect for a mid morning snack to keep the rungries at bay until lunch. Running a lot?! Make that two blenders. Many of you have also been enjoying 2 of these muffins for a meal with Greek yogurt, berries or a banana, and some nut butter drizzled on top. Just that easy. Just that delicious. 
Healthy Eating: Who says eating healthy is boring?! These muffins are ridiculously delicious, keep you full, plus satisfy that need from something sweet. Look forward to one of these every day for a snack. 
Kids: The OG blender muffins are a fan favorite with the kids. However, a few of you told me your kids think bananas are the devil - so that was a big reason I made these without bananas! See what your kiddos think. I bet they'll love them!
