I had bought babes this wheat, yogurt, blueberry baby cereal and was all excited to feed it to her - and when I did she shuddered at the 1st bite, and I thought maybe it was because it was a new flavor for her. However, at 10 bites in she was still shuddering with each bite. So my husband said I'd best chuck it because she didn't like it. I don't know about you but I hate wasting stuff, and so i thought maybe if I baked it into muffins she'd like it better! I searched the inter web for a recipe but found none so I made up my own and will share it with you!
- 1 227g box of baby cereal (I used wheat, yogurt, blueberry cereal)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2cup whole milk
- 1/2cup cooked quick oats porridge
- 1/8c olive oil
- 1cup flour
Adjust your whole milk and flour as needed to get a sticky muffin batter consistency. put into muffin tins (I lined mine) and bake at 350 degrees F for about 12-15mins. Toothpick inserted should come out clean.
These muffins are very soft when baked, babes can bite of a piece with just having her 4 front teeth.
Yield: about 18 depending on how you fill the cups
Babes LOVES them!
these I didn't fill the muffin cups more than 1/2:
and with these the muffin cups were closer to 3/4 filled and cooked a few extra minutes:
these muffins will "fall" a bit once they cool as they are a very soft muffin. Perfect for eaters with few teeth!
