Description

Delicious banana cinnamon muffins for babies, toddlers and kids! These are entirely fruit sweetened (no sugar) and use a blend of whole wheat and oat flours. Fill your freezer with these healthy mini muffins and you will always have home made snacks for your baby or toddler to hand.


Ingredients

  • 3 medium bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tblsps) coconut oil – or you can use butter
  • 1/3 cup (80ml, 95g) of unsweetened applesauce*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) of milk
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 tsps cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup (110g) of light whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup (70g) of oat flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 175C or 350F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash your banana. You want a few chunks in there, but it should be mostly smooth.
  3. Melt your butter or coconut oil in the microwave, and whisk it into the bowl with the mashed banana.
  4. Add the applesauce, milk and vanilla to the bowl and whisk everything together.
  5. Add the eggs and whisk until combined.
  6. Sprinkle the cinnamon and baking soda on top of the liquid mixture and whisk to incorporate.
  7. Finally add the wheat and oat flour, and stir until just combined.
  8. Spoon into mini muffin tins lined with cases (or alternatively use silicone muffin molds sprayed with a nonstick oil spray).
  9. Bake for about 12 minutes, until the muffins are springy and a toothpick comes out clean.

Notes

*You can also use a blend of apple + mango or pear puree. I use whatever Organix fruit pots I have to hand (or the Cow + Gate or Aldi versions) and the recipe uses 1 x 95g pot.
