Healthy Toddler-Friendly Mini Muffins
These Healthy Toddler Friendly Muffins are a great snack for kids because they're sweetened only with fruit and they're full of vegetables and whole grains
Servings 30 mini muffins
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 large carrot grated
- 1 cup grated zucchini
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 4 mashed bananas (or 3 mashed bananas and 1/4 unsweetened applesauce)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin.
Add the whole wheat flour, rolled oats, baking soda and salt to a large bowl and whisk to combine.
To a separate bowl add the eggs and whisk them with a fork to break up the yolks. Add the canola oil, the grated carrot, the grated zucchini and the mashed bananas and mix with a spoon until all the wet ingredients are combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and fold everything together using a rubber spatula just until no streaks of flour remain.
Drop about a tablespoon of the muffin batter into each of the prepared muffin cups and bake at 350 degrees for about 15-18 minutes or until the muffins are a nice golden brown.
Remove them from the oven and from their tin and let them cool completely on a cooling rack before enjoying!
This recipe makes about 30 mini muffins, but I usually make 24 mini muffins for the kids and 3 regular sized muffins for my husband and I to enjoy.
