Morning time is hectic at my house. I’m not one of those super organized moms who has everything needed for the day lined up neatly, ready to go the night before. No, we’re grabbing school papers as we run out the door around here.  Blender muffins have revolutionized our mornings.  That sounds pretty dramatic, doesn’t it? It’s totally true.  Flourless Sweet Potato Blender Muffins. A muffin where the #1 ingredient is a veggie!?! Yes Please!

Before I discovered blender muffins, I’d never have time to make muffins on a school morning.  Sure, I’m up early enough, but I have 100 other things to do and don’t have the time to prep muffins.  But blender muffins?  Five minutes to prep, tops.  You simply put the ingredients in the blender, blend, and pour into the muffin tin.  So easy! If needed, you can even eat these in the car.  

I make this recipe for customizable 5-ingredient blender muffins at least once per week.  It’s my go-to weekday muffin recipe and my kids always gobble them up.  Today I’m bringing you my new favorite version of the blender muffin.  A blender muffin with a vegetable!  I’m all about starting our day on a healthy note, and it doesn’t get much better than having a vegetable with your breakfast. Flourless Sweet Potato Blender Muffins.

These Sweet Potato Blender Muffins are made with no flour, no oil, and no refined sugar. I was skeptical about making a muffin with no flour, but it works! You’ll notice the texture isn’t exactly like that of a regular muffin, but it still has a light crumb that is very muffin-like. Flourless Sweet Potato Blender Muffins.

You’ll also notice that without flour, they don’t rise as high as traditional muffins.  Don’t let that stop you from trying these. I love having my kids start their day with a muffin where the number #1 ingredient is a vegetable instead of flour.  

I’m the only person in my family of four that likes sweet potato, but everyone loved these.  They have a lovely spiced flavor that is perfect for fall. If your family is reluctant to eat sweet potatoes, this is a great way to get them to eat this super food.

The recipe above calls for 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup maple syrup. That is the equivalent of 6 tablespoons. Might be worth updating the recipe….

Heidi- we use an ingredient database so shopping lists, and nutrition data can be calculated for our member site- It made more sense to use cups here, so we had to use the measurement in cups, closest to 6 tablespoons.

I have not tried using applesauce in this particular recipe, but have had good luck using it in place of bananas in other blender recipes. I hope it works for you!

Yes these can be frozen. I freeze them and then I take out the night before and they are perfect in the morning. They have a great texture, soft and lots of flavor. This is a recipe to keep!

The recipe says it calls for 1/4 cup pure maple syrup and 1/8 cup pure maple syrup. Which is it? Or is it both?

what is the correct amount for honey? i tried these and looked nothing like the picture. had consistency of pumpkin pie and sunk in the middle. Epic failure!

I tried making these. They didn’t turn out at all. The middle had the consistency of a scrambled egg. They stuck to the pan, I could only retrieve half the muffin. They didnot rise as shown in the picture. Good flavor though.

Yum! These are definitely a different texture than typical muffins. They almost remind me of mini pumpkin pies but not quite that wet or dense. My 3 yr old and I just ate several out of the oven. Thanks!

Sunken in middle. Consistency of pumpkin pie; not that of a muffin. Major disappointment, but yes good flavor. Sadly, due to the consistency, my daughter probably won’t eat them.

I made these and they were way too soft in the middle. The outside was browned like a muffin, inside mushy. Increasing the cook time did not help at all. Next time I would add more dry ingredients like rolled oats.

I also had mine sink in the middle. I was glad to read that I wasn’t the only one. They smell and taste amazing. I think I will try them with some oat flour in them to bulk them up and see if that helps.

Mine really stuck to the pan. I put them back in the oven and that helped a bit. Glad to try them, but probably wouldn’t make again. The difficulty getting them out of the pan made them kinda high maintenance. The flavor is good though!

These were fabulous!! Followed the recipe spot on and they turned out perfect! Definitely a little more dense than a muffin but I love them. They taste so good and have a lovely fall spice feel. My son gobbled them right up.

Just have to chime in here reading all these negative comments.. These are my FAVORITE breakfast muffins. Talk about easy! And my first time making them the middle was too gooey also. But I didn’t give up because the flavor was so awesome. **Make sure to measure the sweet potatoe as instructed** and experiment w different nut butters. Not all almond butters are created equal;) The best I’ve found is Barney Butter Almond butter. The last time I made them my 7 year old (very picky) daughter said “Mom these get better every time!”. And as far as them sticking I too had that problem until I bought liners. Keep trying!! They are worth it!

These are amazing! I had to make a second batch because my kids ate the whole first batch in less than a day! Following the measurements is crucial, even one scoop over the 3/4 cup sweet potatoes can be a goopy mess. As long as you follow exactly they turn out super delicious and I highly recommend!

My twin 16 months olds loved these. Subbes natural peanut butter for almond butter bc that’s what I had on hand and it worked great. My husband texted me at work telling me how the boys “gobbled” their muffins. 🙂 Thank you!

These turned out well, the whole family seemed to like them, including me-the pickiest eater of the bunch! I have a can of pumpkin, could I substitute with that next time? Would it still call for 3/4 c.?

Your recipe sounds good and I’ll definitely try it. But.. sweet potato isn’t a vegetable. It’s a root crop 🙂

Sweet potatoes are just as much a vegetable as any other potato, carrot, or any other root vegetable. It’s called a “root vegetable.”

Maybe I just don’t have a lot of experience with flourless recipes, but I found the texture to be kind of strange. I kept putting it back in the oven because I thought it wasn’t fully cooked. I stopped when the top started to turn a little *too* brown, and the inside was still a bit… mushy. But my kid ate this without a complaint, and I liked the taste.

5 stars
I whipped these in my vitamix – they were creamy and my kids loved them!! May take an adjustment if you expect flour type texture.

Tried these with flax seed eggs (since we have egg allergies) and they just would NOT bake….; (
Thanks for the recipe, anyway!!

I made these tonight and had to swap out the egg for applesauce because of allergies. The batter tasted DELICIOUS (I couldn’t help “test” it) and my mini muffins turned out great. But I did a mix of mini/full-size and the full size browned on top but never baked fully through. I agree with the comments that you need to double-check your sweet potato quantity because that might have been my issue! I will definitely try again next time I have leftover sweet potatoes/bananas because, even eating with a fork, these are yummy!

I don’t see an answer to the question on substituting pumpkin for the sweet potato, how much would that be? 1 cup?

Hi Jessica, we haven’t tried this personally, but if you’re up for experimenting, 1 cup of pumpkin is a good approximation. 🙂

We literally make this recipe at least once a month and I eat them for breakfast daily at times! What I love most about this recipe are all of the spices and of course that they are low carb and grain free. I usually make them with pumpkin which changes the nutritional profile a tad and makes them even more low carb (as well as it is quicker to have a box of pumpkin puree on hand). Thanks!!

Hi there! We haven’t tried this ourselves, but honey usually makes a good substitute for maple syrup in baked goods.

I have type 1 diabetic child. Did I miss the carbs or are they not listed? Any carb info is MUCH appreciated.

These turned out so amazingly good. My three kids devoured them right out of the oven and my house smelled amazing.

I swapped out six tablespoons of syrup for six tablespoons of old fashioned oats. Great switch — helped them fight the mushy middles. The banana was plenty sweet 🙂

5 stars
Just made these and they turned out great! I doubled the recipe and it made 24 mini muffins and 13 normal size muffins. I used ripe bananas that I had in the freezer and omitted the maple syrup and they are plenty sweet. I also added 12 tbsp of quick oats (would have been 6 but I doubled the recipe). I substituted pumpkin pie spice for all spice, and then used half the nutmeg. They rose and did not fall and were fully cooked through. Will make again!

We used a regular muffin tin- but you could certainly use a small one! Just adjust the baking time accordingly. 🙂

5 stars
LOVE! I used pnut butter because that’s what I had and they were great! My 5 yo and husband raved about them and they generally don’t like healthy alternatives. My husband said they taste like banana/pumpkin pie. They did have a somewhat pumpkin pie consistancy, but in a good way. Definite keeper.

5 stars
These are our favorite muffins ever! I make them all the time for my 2.5-year-old but my husband tends always ends up eating half of them! I double the batch and freeze some to have on hand later – 30 seconds or so in the microwave and they’re good to go. Thanks for this awesome and easy recipe!

5 stars
Spent a small fortune on almon butter, lol but it was all worth it in the end. Other than the prep for the sweet potato, this recipe came together very fast and was delicious. My very picky eater gave it two thumbs up and it is easy to make a few batches ahead of time to freeze! I did not alter the recipe at all 🙂
