Baby Food Muffin Bites

Once upon a time, Dan and I would dedicate the recipes on this blog to dishes we enjoyed together, things that were creative and delicious. Now that we have a 9 month old baby, we thought it would be a neat idea to develop recipes that she can enjoy as well. She usually eats table food along with us during meal times, but we wanted a way to incorporate some of the baby food we keep for her in the pantry. Here, we combined baby oatmeal and pureed baby food into some nutritious mini muffins that are good enough for even Mom and Dad to sneak a bite.

    So I ommitted the sugar since these were for babies, and they were a little too savory for me. I think next time I’ll either add it back in or find another sweetener. We did eat them with butter though, so if still worked out. Even my 11 yr old are a few. I also used bannana purée instead of mashed as I’m trying to use my baby food jars.
