Apple and Cinnamon Super Breakfast Muffins

Baby Led Feeding Super Healthy Apple and Cinnamon Porridge Muffins Homemade Healthy baby breakfast.

In our house we have instilled that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Mostly the older ones eat porridge as I always find it does what it is supposed to and keeps them full until lunch time. We add whatever fruit we have in the fruit bowl, make it with variations in milk and even add homemade chia jams (which are amazing!) My favourite at the moment is pure peanut butter, slices of banana and a sprinkling of coconut shavings. Pure heaven.

The problem with porridge (oatmeal) when it comes to Baby Led Feeding though is that it is one of the worst things to clean off your little one. It sticks to their hair, to their eye lashes and even after you have given them a bath you are sure to find a lone piece stuck behind their ear or elsewhere. No matter what way I attempted to give it Oscar is was a disastrous mess.

These little muffins have to this day been the most popular recipe I have made and if you are looking to make something that will ease you as a parent, in the baby led approach then this is the recipe for you. This recipe is so ideal for little babies who are starting out on their baby led journey as they are soft, full of nourishing goodness and the best part is that they can be made in a big batch and frozen. The perfect little breakfast for those busy mornings when you want your little one to be eating porridge but don’t have the time to let them mush it all over their faces.

Thank you to literally the hundreds of you who have sent me photos of your little ones eating these. I just realised today that this recipe is just up on my Facebook page and not on the site. Hopefully lots more of you will send photos. I always love seeing them and getting feedback.

Now, I’m going to soak some oats for our morning muffins.

Happy mornings from us,

Aileen xoxo

Hi there, is the 300ml milk to be used to soak the oats, or is it to go in with all the ingredients? It seems very sloppy if you add it to the bowl.

I have the same question Aileen- oats currently soaking in water for the morning. Do I still add 300ml milk? I tried them before but didn’t feel they were fully cooked as the mixture was quite wet. Any advice appreciated. Have made lots from your website in the last three or four weeks- thank you!

This is a great recipe, my little boy loves them. I add some extra seeds, like flax or linseed too.

I made these but used 100ml milk as per recipe but I’ve now watched video which calls for 300mls milk. Which is correct? Thanks.

Think it would still work if i substituted finely ground pepitas for the sunflower seeds?

Mine were very soggy as the oats had absorbed all the water:( is there a way to stop this happening?
