Mini Blender Muffins, great for baby led weaning or the lunch box.







These mini blender muffins are perfect for little hands. Great for babies and toddlers or to pack into lunch boxes.

One of the most popular recipes on Healthy Little Foodies is my Fruity Oat Breakfast Bites. They are easy to make, perfect as a hand held breakfast and great to pop into lunch boxes. Mini Blender Muffins are a similar idea but have blended oats to give a smoother, more muffin like texture.

Muffins like these are perfect for getting kids involved in the kitchen. It is an easy recipe but has plenty for young kids to do. My youngest, Rory (2), loved peeling and breaking the banana, measuring the ingredients, tipping them into the blender, cracking the egg, switching on the blender and, of course, sampling the dates.

Above is a picture of him getting a little inpatient as I try to photograph the muffins. He was eagerly pointing to each muffin in turn and saying “Rory’s, Mummy’s, Rory’s, Mummy’s, Rory’s….)

Please note, this recipe only fills half a mini muffin tray. This is because it was all my blender will hold. I usually make two batches to fill a tray. If you have a large blender you may want to double the recipe.
