A quick, easy and tasty treat that the whole family can enjoy.

Stella (2 years) absolutely adores muffins (as do the rest of the household). I wanted to create a healthy sweet treat for her that I could make in bulk and freeze. The bonus about mini muffins is that they don’t take long to defrost.

For baking I steer clear of white flour and sugar and find much healthier & nutritious alternatives. For example white flour alternatives I tend to use in my baking include almond flour, buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, quinoa flour etc and I’m sure you are aware of the substitutes for sugar.

So on a rainy day in Auckland, Stella and I decided to do some baking so I quickly created the recipe and it was definitely a success. Let’s just say that we probably froze less than planned. But the recipe certainly created a lot of mini muffins so also good for a party.

These muffins are super simple and great for kids to help in the kitchen. They are also just made in a food processor / blender which means that you will save on dishes!

We hope your family enjoys them as much as we did.
