Toddler Muffins is my most pinned recipe on Pinterest, and since I was doing some baking for the week, I decided to play around with the recipe and I created a yummy vegan toddler muffin. These muffins don’t just have to be for toddlers though, they were seriously soooo good!
This first thing I did was wash my blueberries, zucchini and apple. There are a lot of fruit and veggie cleaners on the market, but I just soaked them in 3 parts vinegar and 1 part warm water for about 15 minutes, then I rinsed them clean.
I chopped up the apple and sautéed it on medium-low in a tablespoon of coconut oil, to bring out their flavor and soften them up. You don’t have to do this step, and you could also saute them in something besides coconut oil. While the apples were sauteing I shredded the zucchini and mashed the banana.
I put the fruit and zucchini in a bowl and stirred together. I had a baby food pouch on hand, and I thought the fruit and veggie combo would be the perfect addition to the muffins, I used the whole pouch since it equaled 1/2 cup.
I measured out the rest of the ingredients and added it to the fruit and veggie mixture and combined it all. Then fill your muffin tin, either greased or lined.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 mins. Makes 12 muffins.
