I’ve been experimenting with some healthy, baby-friendly treats and I came up with a mini muffin that I think little ones will enjoy. It is gluten-free, dairy-free and contains no refined sugars. I’ve snuck some zucchini and carrots into them as well for those picky toddlers who won’t eat veggies on their own. Also a tasty way to add an extra dose of veggies for big people :) @dessertangel #glutenfree #healthyveggies

Wee One’s Muffins [Kid-Friendly Recipe]

For the past few weeks my baby girl has been on the move! She has mastered crawling and is exploring the whole house. Luckily, she isn’t too interested in opening all my cupboards. It is so much fun to see where she wants to go and what she wants to do when she has this independence.

This means though, that toys are everywhere. Also, gone are the days when she would sit and watch me work in the kitchen (while entertaining her with my singing and silly dancing, of course).

I’ve been making baby finger foods and purees galore for her for a few months now. She is getting to the stage of eating chunkier foods and with that I’m hoping to be able to bake her some healthy goodies to try.

Give it a try if you have little ones and let me know what you think! My baby girl is teething and refusing all solids, so I haven’t been able to get any feedback yet. I had to eat all of them (I’m not complaining :))
