Apple Banana Baby Muffins

Now that Baby T has 6 teeth it’s been fun introducing him to new foods that are different than his usual purees and baby food. The other day, around snack time, I decided that I’d make some whole wheat pancakes instead of reaching for the usual fruit puree. 

Baby Pancakes

After having a not so successful attempt at getting him to eat the pancakes, which he had more fun playing with and sharing with the dog, I decided to try making some muffins. 

Muffins are often sugar-filled and I wanted something healthy for him so I took what I knew about some muffin recipes and created a mix on the spot. I threw them into a mini muffin tin and they turned out delicious and just the right size for Baby T. 

The muffins definitely went over much better than the pancakes!
