Baby Led Weaning Egg Muffins

Recipe By Aileen Cox Blundell

We love eggs in our house, in fact it is one of our absolutely favorite healthy breakfasts ever! It’s perfect quick, healthy breakfast option for your baby and toddler. But, how do you give eggs to a new baby starting baby led weaning? In little baby led weaning muffins of course! The best part about this recipe is that it is full of yummy ingredients, veggies, cheese, and they are easy to pick up for little hands and boy do they taste amazing!I make a GINORMOUS batch and freeze the lot of them! That way I always have a healthy breakfast or snack on hand for those busy days. 

Try this simple breakfast recipe if you have a picky eater as well. The cuteness of the little egg muffins is sure to make even the fussiest of eaters curios about what these egg cups have in store.

How many do these egg muffins feed?

This recipe makes 24 mini muffins or 12 large. I packed in a kids handful of veggies into each one; spinach, peppers, tomatoes, topped with a little cheese and voila! Delicious healthy breakfast muffins that are the perfect size for baby led weaning and a brilliant finger food for babies too!

Make the clean up process even easier by using a silicon muffin tin or muffin cups. The egg muffins will slip right out of the tin without any mess!

Make these mini muffins with any veggie combination!

One of the best parts about these healthy breakfast muffins is that they are SO customizable! I love to put a finely chopped handful of veggies into the egg mixture to add the extra boost of healthy vegetables for my baby. I use spinach, pepper, and tomato in this recipe, but feel free to swap out those veggies for whatever you like. Some other great options to add would be some finely chopped mushrooms, broccoli, potato, or onion!

Ingredients

6 eggs
60ml (1/4 cup) milk
1 teaspoon butter
1 large handful of spinach
6 cherry tomatoes
1 red bell pepper
200g buffalo mozerella diced
Black pepper to season

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180ºC.
  2. Whisk together the eggs and milk until they are light and fluffy.
  3. Use the butter to lightly coat a muffin tin then, divide the mixture equally into a muffin tin. They should all be roughly half filled.
  4. Finely chop the spinach and pepper and quarter the cherry tomatoes. Place about a tablespoon of spinach leaves into each muffin, top with a little pepper and add half of a tomato to each one.
  5. Add a little cheese to each muffin then a sprinkle of pepper. Finally use a spoon to press the vegetables down so they are covered in egg.
  6. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until golden.
  7. Cool before serving.

These are fantastic I added oregano to the egg mix. My 10 month year old is loving these. I’ve also experimented with shaped silicone molds. So she has bunny and teddy bear shaped egg muffins.

I’ve also found them great as a healthy snack for myself.

Thank you for sharing!

I absolutely love your recipes ! My daughter has just turned 6 months so I’m new to BLW. How do you reheat the muffins when you have frozen them ?
Thank you !

This is a great recipe for BLW that also can be modified! I just added what veggies I had on hand and some herbs. We just started solids a few days ago and babe loved this!

They are perfect to make a large batch and then freeze for when I don’t want to take a lot of time to make breakfast in the morning. Im also wondering how to reheat them after freezing. Please share!
