Within a few months of commencing baby led weaning with our daughter, she had tried almost every fruit, vegetable, and meat possible. Whilst she loved the variety of plain, healthy foods we were giving her, I began to search for some snacks that I could bake to provide her (and us) with a something a little different.
These mini banana muffins are great from a young age because they are soft and can be broken into bite sized pieces for your little one. They have no additives or nasties, are great on-the-go, and as an added bonus, they are quick and easy to make.
And since it’s paleo – the ingredients are simple, wholesome, and easy to find.
Grease the muffin tin with coconut oil.
Spoon the batter into the tray. Bake at 200°C (390°F) for 10 minutes.
Allow muffins to cool in the tray before removing.
