Healthy Spinach + Bananas Breakfast Muffins Recipe for Toddlers

I originally posted this recipe on Tribe Magazine, but I wanted to share it here as well because it’s one of our favorite toddler recipes and has been such a big hit with other mama readers! It’s a perfect breakfast recipe for picky toddlers who refuse to eat any vegetables. Also, don’t let the green color fool you — they’re REALLY good and a breakfast staple in our house now. A big thank you to fellow toddler mom, Ashley, for sharing this recipe with me!

Enjoy!

Breakfast Muffins Recipe for Toddlers

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Put the first seven ingredients (applesauce, egg, vanilla, spinach, banana, maple syrup and coconut oil) in a blender or food processor and blend.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt) in a smaller mixing bowl.
  4. Add the wet spinach mixture from blender to the dry ingredients.
  5. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet until combined. You can use a spoon or spatula. The mixture might be dense. Add a splash of milk to loosen it up if you need to, but the mixture should resemble a thick pancake dough. It won’t pour easily, will need a spoon.
  6. Scoop the batter into greased muffins tins.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees  (12 minutes for mini-muffins or 17 minutes for regular-sized muffins).

Enjoy!
