Super Quick and Healthy Toddler Breakfast Idea #3

Baby Food Muffins:

These are similar to last week in that they take a little bit of prep, but are ready in just seconds from the freezer. 


These can be made many different ways. 

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
2.5 cups total of any combination of baby food 
(mashed banana, pumpkin, avocado, shredded zucchini, shredded carrots, applesauce, etc.) 

Olivia doesn't love these without something a little sweet, so I usually use applesauce or add some real maple syrup to them. Its a great way to sneak in lots of veggies! Just put them in mini muffin cups (fills 24 mini), and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. 


Let them cool and put them in a labeled freezer safe bag. In the morning, microwave for 25 seconds and these muffins are ready to eat!

  1. Another great recipe!! Saving this to make for Olive. I think she'd love some sweet potatoes and carrots in hers :)

    1. I'm so glad! We microwave eggs 5 days a week - haha. Few more up my sleeve, then I'm going to need ideas from you guys!

    1. Right now Olivia is young enough that a muffin doesn't have to be super sweet. I'm going to milk that as long as I can.
