How to make these Breakfast Muffins

These baby led weaning breakfast muffins are quick to make and are ready in as little as 15 minutes!

To start, add all the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well. Then, add the wet ingredients (oil, milk, eggs and yoghurt) to a large mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.

Next, add the dry mixture, grated carrot and apple and stir until fully combined.

You’re then ready to divide the mixture into a lightly oiled muffin tin (if you’re making mini muffins), or a lightly oiled standard muffin tin (for standard!).

If you’re making mini muffins, bake for 15 minutes. For standard, you’ll have to wait slightly longer and bake for 25. To check if your muffins are ready, use a skewer and check to make sure it’s clean.

Finally, leave your muffins to cool before serving and make sure to store them in an airtight container or to freeze them for a handy and quick breakfast idea!
