Christmas morning is special occasion in our house, as it is in many houses around the world. My own little ones favourite thing is having something different for breakfast that tastes indulgent and yummy but for me (of course) I have to make it a little on the healthy side. Taaaaa daaaaaa…..enter the Super Healthy Cranberry and Orange Christmas Muffin! I kid you not, this muffin is actually only filled with goodness. No refined sugar, maple syrup or any other free sugar and instead I’ve used ripe banana to sweeten them. Don’t think for a second though that these muffins are flavourless and not good enough for your Christmas, they are in fact truly amazing, light and fluffy and will have your kitchen wafting with Christmas magic in less than 15 minutes.

For baby led weaning muffins are just brilliant if they are made in a healthy way. They can be packed with goodness and babies just love them. I have had thousands of lovely parents make these muffins and the feedback has been so positive. Soft, easy to manage and just the right size for little hands.

These muffins can be made well ahead of time and the best part is that they freeze. So make lots, freeze and the night before you (or Santa Claus) wants to eat them you can remove from the freezer to defrost. We like ours a little warm so heat in the oven for about 5 minutes at 180ºC.

Wishing you all a yummy Christmas season.
