How to Make Blueberry Muffins for Baby

To make blueberry muffins for baby you first mix the wet ingredients together: the coconut, mashed banana and egg.

You then add it to the dry ingredients. This recipe uses rolled oats instead of flour which is blended into a rough ‘flour’.

Then you add something to help the muffins rise. Here 2 egg whites are used instead of baking soda or baking powder. They are beaten until frothy and stiff and gently stirred into the batter along with the fresh blueberries.

Bake until golden to prepare these healthy treats for baby.

Ingredients

  • 150 grams rolled oats (1⅔ cups)
  • 3 medium bananas
  • 100 ml coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 additional egg whites
  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C or 350°F fan setting. Grease a muffin tin or line the inserts with cupcake liners.
  2. Blend the rolled oats until they become a rough flour mixture. Empty the oats into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  3. Blend the bananas with the coconut oil until smooth. Beat in the egg,  add them all to the bowl of oats, stirring everything together.
  4. Using an electric mixer, beat the 2 additional egg whites until stiff and frothy. This step is important for your muffins to rise a little.
  5. Carefully fold the beaten egg whites into the mixture.
  6. Finally, stir in your fresh blueberries.
  7. You can now spoon your mixture into each of your cupcake liners until they’re almost level with the top.
  8. Bake them on the middle shelf of the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Remove and allow to cool to room temperature before serving.

Whip the Egg Whites
