These mini blender muffins are perfect for little hands. Great for babies and toddlers or to pack into lunch boxes.
One of the most popular recipes on Healthy Little Foodies is my Fruity Oat Breakfast Bites. They are easy to make, perfect as a hand held breakfast and great to pop into lunch boxes. Mini Blender Muffins are a similar idea but have blended oats to give a smoother, more muffin-like texture.
Muffins like these are perfect for getting kids involved in the kitchen. It is an easy recipe but has plenty for young kids to do. My youngest, Rory (2), loved peeling and breaking the banana, measuring the ingredients, tipping them into the blender, cracking the egg, switching on the blender and, of course, sampling the dates.
Above is a picture of him getting a little impatient as I try to photograph the muffins. He was eagerly pointing to each muffin in turn and saying “Rory’s, Mummy’s, Rory’s, Mummy’s, Rory’s….)
Please note, this recipe only fills half a mini muffin tray. This is because it was all my blender will hold. I usually make two batches to fill a tray. If you have a large blender you may want to double the recipe.
Mini Blender Muffins
Mini blender muffins perfect for baby-led weaning, toddlers or to pop into lunch boxes.
- 1 banana
- 80g (1 cup) oats
- 125g (1/2 cup) natural yoghurt
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 20g (approx 3) dates
- 12 raspberries / blueberries to top (optional)
Pre heat oven to 180c / 3350 f and lightly grease a mini muffin tray (this mixture fills 12 of a 24 mini muffin tray)
Add all the ingredients to a blender (in the same order as the ingredient list) and blend until smooth.
Fill each muffin tray insert, to the top, with the mixture.
Top with a raspberry / blueberry or fruit of choice.
Bake for 15 mins. Remove from oven and allow to cool before removing from the muffin tray
These ingredients only make 12 mini muffins. My mini muffin tray will hold 24 but my blender is only big enough to hold the ingredients stated. If you have a large blender you may wish to double the recipe or you could just make two batches to fill a 24 tray.
