Pear and Zucchini Mini Muffins

Toddler Food: Zucchini & Pear Mini Muffins


Ok so I’m just going to put this out there… does anybody else have a baby/toddler that’s a bottomless pit? I swear I have no idea where my daughter puts all the food she eats every day, sometimes her serving sizes rival mine at mealtimes. These days I feel like I’m on constant rotation making and freezing meals and finger foods for her, it’s like no matter how big of a batch I do, they disappear before my eyes.

These pear and zucchini mini muffins are one of my latest creations (and one of the most delicious). They are dairy free, wheat free and are sweetened only by the juiciness of the pears. Most importantly they are toddler approved and are the perfect on-the-go snack and the batch can be frozen so you always have some on hand. I won’t lie, they’re so delicious that I usually sneak one for myself too.
