Raspberry Baby Muffins

Raspberry Baby Muffins: A Sugar-Free Toddler Snack

This weekend I am going on a family trip to the mountain. I prepared these Raspberry Baby Muffins for my baby girl as a ‘on-the-go snack’. They are really easy to make and because of their small size it baked within 15 minutes. All you need is wholemeal flour, egg and milk and your choice of berries. I used frozen raspberry because it is winter here.  I also added a bit of cinnamon and vanilla paste to give some flavour to the dough as I did not use sugar in this recipe. Those little muffins are a my favourite sugar free baby food right now.

The mix of cinnamon, vanilla paste and raspberry was perfect. The frozen raspberry melted while baking creating a sort of jam in the middle of the muffins giving an extra moisture and make them extra easy to eat by small hands. I decorated the top of the muffin with coconut flour which also added a lovely coconut taste.  I made 24 baby muffins with this recipe and I used a 24 Cup Mini Muffin Pan here

    Carine, these look amazing. I’m about to whip some up for my little guy. Can I sub vanilla extract for vanilla paste? Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Heather. Of course vanilla extract is a great option too. My girl also like rose water or orange blossom flower water. Have a nice baking :)

    Hi Carine, do you not use any self raising flour or is it just wholemeal for these muffins? They look yummy. Thanks

      Hi Emily, I did not use self raising flour only wholemeal with 1 tsp of baking powder (baking soda will work well too). Because they are mini size muffins it is raising really well and stay light and moist – also because of the raspberries. I am sure it will be delicious with self raising flour too. But do not add the baking powder in this case. I love wholemeal because it is more nutritive and contains more fibre than plain flour but it is up to you. I hope you try them. Carine. xx.

    Can these be frozen??

      Hi Mandy, I do froze many of my muffins. The best is to remove them from the freezer at least 2 hours before eating them. Rewarm in the oven for 2 minutes if too cold. Enjoy!
