We’ve been on a baby led weaning journey with Everett for the past few months and it’s been a ton of fun! If you are unfamiliar with baby led weaning, or BLW, it is when you let your baby feed themselves finger foods. We initially started with purees when Everett was 5 months old just so he could get used to tasting new foods. But at 6 months we went full force with baby led weaning. It’s been a blast trying new recipes and today I am sharing a recipe for flourless pumpkin muffins.
Now if you are uber healthy, than these might be a great recipe for you too! But I honestly need a little bit more sugar haha. However, Everett loves them and these flourless pumpkin muffins are perfect for babies and toddlers. They don’t have any added sugar and pumpkin is extremely nutritious.
- 2 cups whole milk
- 3 cups quick cooking oats
- 2 large eggs (room temperature)
- 1 can pumpkin
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray non-stick muffin tray with oil or use muffin/cupcake liners.
- Mix together all ingredients into large bowl.
- Pour batter into muffin tray and distribute evenly. (I filled them about 3/4 full).
- Place tray in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.
- Let cool and serve.
You could spread peanut butter or cream cheese on top for an even more delicious treat.
These freeze great and you can just pop them in the microwave to reheat for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Be sure to speak with your pediatrician before beginning solids, as well as consult with the best way to serve for your little one.
These flourless pumpkin muffins are so easy to make and your home will smell like fall. I used a decent amount of spices, but you could reduce this some if you prefer. For toddlers, you could also add a little maple syrup if you did want it to be a tad sweet. Everett doesn’t know the difference though and he gobbled his up.
I know I’m biased, but he’s such a cutie! If you give this recipe a try, let us know how they turned out for you.
