Toddler Muffins

I haven't actually tried this recipe just yet. I heard about it from a bunch of my January mommy friends and decided that these might work really well for Monkey as a quick snack here or there or even breakfast on the weekends. I was going to try them this week, but our painting project has taken over the entire first floor of our house so no baking here. I'll make them on the weekend though!

Toddler Muffins
(as found on AllRecipes)

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, or to taste
  • 2 large bananas, mashed
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) jar baby food squash
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 24 mini muffin cups or 12 standard muffin cups.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Mix in the mashed bananas, squash, carrots, and eggs. Stir in the flour, oat bran, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt until just combined. Spoon the batter equally into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack. Store at room temperature for up to two days, or freeze.               

If you make this before the weekend, let me know how it goes!
