Muffin Memories

Silvia has a new favorite food.  They’re muffins, but she calls them Oafies.  I made her a batch of banana, flax muffins a month or two ago and they were gone in a matter of days. So, just about a week ago, we got to work on another batch.

This time she helped!  She banged around the measuring spoons and stacked the muffin cups while I mashed and mixed.  Into the batter went flax seed, oats, apple sauce, vanilla, cinnamon, flour and other good, healthy stuff.  For flour, I used a gluten free baking mix because I don’t like to rely too heavily on wheat and I think it’s good variety.

The result was a hit!

She couldn’t stop stuffing the things in her mouth!  I made about a half-dozen of “adult-sized” muffins and then 24 mini, Silvia-sized muffins.

If you’re looking for the recipe, it’s one that I found in a book called Great Expectations: Best Food for Your Baby & Toddler.  They have a lot of fantastic recipes in there for baby and toddler friendly foods.  Many that, like the muffins, make Silvia a happy, happy girl!
