Toddler Muffins

Mini muffins for finicky toddlers with the addition of fruit and veggies. My son is 2 and has been eating these for a year. I always keep a supply in the freezer; he loves them frozen, especially when new teeth are coming in! Adults love them, too. Great for play groups!

Recipe makes 24 mini muffins or 12 regular-size muffins.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar, or to taste
  • 2 large bananas, mashed
  • 1 (4.5 oz) jar baby food squash
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup oat bran
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp salt

 

Directions

  • Step 1
    Preheat an oven to 375 degrees. Grease 24 mini muffin cups or 12 standard muffin cups.
  • Step 2
    In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Mix in the mashed bananas, squash, carrots, and eggs. Stir in the flour, oat bran, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt until just combined. Spoon the batter equally into the prepared muffin cups.
  • Step 3
    Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack. Store at room temperature for up to two days, or freeze.
