Muffins are an absolute staple in baby led weaning recipe. Whether you’re looking for healthy toddler snacks and lunches or baby food ideas, they are simply brilliant to have on hand and the perfect base for nearly any food you’d like to introduce to your little ones.

Baby Led weaning muffins Veggie and Fruit Muffins Recipe

These veggie-packed mini-muffins are just the right size for tiny fingers to grasp, and like all of my recipe, they are refined sugar free. This recipe makes 32 toddler servings and bakes beautifully into regular-sized muffin tins, as well. So get those lunch boxes ready—sixteen of them, to be exact—and prepare the whole family for a treat!

When I say these muffins are loaded with veggies, I mean it. They are bursting with shredded courgettes (zucchini) and carrots, providing a generous helping of vitamins C, K, B6, riboflavin, and so much more. Fibrous apples and raisins marry seamlessly with the veggies, creating a naturally sweet, not savoury, muffin that will be a sure winner with the kids.

Baby Led weaning Recipe

With these muffins, I grate the courgettes, carrots, and apples first then set them aside to fold in later. Using a clean towel, squeeze as much juice from the shredded courgettes as possible to make certain your muffins rise to fluffy perfection.

It is important to apply the wet and dry baking rules in this recipe, so simply sieve your dry ingredients together, then combine your wet items in a separate jug. After that, you mix them, fold in your produce, bake for half-an-hour, and viola! You have delicious, healthy baby led weaning muffins that you, your littles, and everyone else will fall in love with!

Baby Led weaning Recipe

I was so pleased with the way this recipe turned out! Like my other baby led weaning muffins, they are soft and palatable for the littles, and thanks to a grabby husband, I had to bake a second batch. I may have eaten a few myself, too. 😀

Lots of love,

Sweet veggie loaded mini muffins for baby led weaning are perfect for the entire family and excellent for school lunches. These muffins are refined sugar free and packed with apples, zucchini, and carrots.

Method

  • Pre-heat oven to 160ºC.
  • Sieve the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl, then make a well in the centre.
  • In a jug, whisk together the milk, eggs, rapeseed oil, maple syrup and cinnamon.
  • Slowly pour the wet mixture into the flour whisking from the middle outwards which prevents lumps. Keep whisking until it is fully combined and has turned into a silky batter.
  • Grate in the courgettes, then place into a clean tea towel and squeeze some of their juice out. Add to the batter along with the grated apples, carrots and rains and stir well.
  • Spoon into a mini muffin tin lightly oiled, then bake for 30 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Cool fully before serving.
