Just a glance at Baby Led Feeding, and you’ll know that I absolutely love muffins for baby led weaning breakfast (or lunch or snack or dinner or anytime). They offer an ideal, simple base for almost any food you’d like to introduce to your little one’s diet, and they’re a perfectly sized, healthy finger food that allows tiny hands to eagerly explore mealtime.

These beautifully soft and moist Apple Cinnamon and Raisin Muffins are surprisingly sweet, but they contain no added sugar—it’s all in the fruit! As far as baby led weaning breakfast goes, you cannot ask for a more nutritious option. Apples and raisins are both loaded with fiber, and together, they offer heaps of vitamin C, calcium, antioxidants, iron, and more.

      • 10 minutes
      • SERVES
      • 24 Mini Muffins

What goes in...

  • 3 sweet eating apples
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 300g Dunnes Stores Self-Raising Flour
  • 250ml milk (1 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 60ml rapeseed oil (1/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons raisins

How to make it...

  1. Preheat oven to 170ºC.
  2. Core the apples and dice, then place into a saucepan with the water. Cover with a lid, then place over a medium heat. Bring to boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, covered for 8 minutes until the apples are soft but not stewed. Remove from the heat and leave aside to cool.
  3. Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix well until they are fully combined.
  4. Spoon the mixture into an oiled mini-muffin tin.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes until the muffins have risen and are golden brown – if you stick a toothpick into them it should come out clean.
  6. Serve warm or cold.
