These easy baby banana oat blender muffins are great for baby led weaning breakfasts or toddler snacks. With no added sugar, you can feel good about serving them to babies! (gluten-free)


Units Scale
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed (optional)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 medium very ripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Line a mini muffin tin with paper or silicone liners, then spray liners with oil. (I use this silicone mini muffin pan and love it!)
  2. Place all dry ingredients (oats, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon) in a high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix. Blend until a fine powder forms.
  3. Add wet ingredients (bananas, eggs, yogurt, and vanilla) and blend until smooth and well combined, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  4. Scoop batter into muffin pan using a 1 tbsp scoop
  5. Bake muffins for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool before storing or serving to baby.


  • Storage: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days at room temperature or up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Muffins can be frozen for up to 3 months. 
  • Testing for doneness: The muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Try not to over-bake them so that they stay moist and tender.
  • Add-ins: You can add crushed walnuts or pecans if you'd like, for a little extra allergen exposure! If you're making these for older kids or adults, you can also stir in mini chocolate chips. 
  • Full sized muffins: For regular sized muffins, bake for 10-15 minutes.
