Why I Love These Pumpkin Spice Blender Muffins
As a self-avowed icing hater (really, I only like cream cheese frosting), I'm a big fan of muffins. I think they're the perfect little pairing for lunch (or breakfast) when you need just a touch of sweetness!
This recipe is particularly compelling because it's so easily whipped up in a blender! I also love that I can keep mostly pantry ingredients on hand to make these muffins whenever I have the craving for a snack-able treat, a quick breakfast, or a delicious dessert. Plus, you can freeze them!
I made a video for this recipe - which is always super exciting - so check it out!

Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Muffins
The muffins are so simple! Basically, you're looking at dates for sweetness, pumpkin for moisture (and flavor!), oats for fiber, and all the spices! It's simply the best (better than all the rest - name that song).

Are These Muffins Paleo?
They're not, but you could probably swap all or some of the oats for almond meal/flour for a very similar result. Let me know if you try it!
How to Make Healthy Pumpkin Spice Blender Muffins
First thing's first: if your dates are hard, or if your blender is old, I recommend soaking the dates in hot water for about 5 minutes while preheating your oven to 350ºF.
Then, simply add all ingredients to the blender and blend them together until the mixture is smooth. If you have an older or less powerful blender, you may want to blend the dates with the wet ingredients before adding the oats!
Finally, pour or scoop the batter into 12 muffin cups (I use a silicone muffin pan), and bake them on 350ºF for about 18-20 minutes. Poke the muffins with a toothpick to check for doneness (toothpick should come out 90% clean) and then let them cool slightly before serving with butter! Enjoy!
