These banana spinach mini muffins are a great way to sneak some spinach and vitamins into your little ones! Great for adults too of course, but who doesn’t love a kid friendly recipe? My 7 month old approves and they are the perfect size for his little hands.
So I’m currently exploring the baby led weaning approach to feeding my youngest solids. If you haven’t heard of this before, it’s essentially skipping purees, and starting with table food right at the age of 6 months old. Well so far so good, because my little munchkin LOVES to eat. These mini muffins are just perfect for weaning him onto food. He can hold them easily with his little hands, and enjoy his dessert, while sneaking in some spinach. These are great for breakfast, dessert, or just an any time snack for a mid day pick me up.
I use a combination of flours for this recipe because I’ve tried this multiple ways. I truly feel the combination listed below is the perfect blend. If you don’t have all the different flours handy, you can substitute for all whole wheat, or all oat flour. However, I don’t recommend going all brown rice flour on these ones, as the muffins will be quite dense. Although, if you prefer a denser muffins, then go for it!
