Super moist Baby Banana Oat Muffins with no added sugar! Perfect for baby led weaning and a great source of iron for little ones. Gluten, dairy, egg, and nut free. Note that the texture of these is more dense versus fluffy, making them easier to eat for babies. 


Units Scale


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a mini muffin tin. (A regular muffin tin will work too).
  2. Place banana in a medium mixing bowl. Mash with a fork. Add tahini and stir until smooth.
  3. Add oatmeal baby cereal, oats, cinnamon and chia seeds. Stir with a fork until combined. This is a thick batter.
  4. Spoon batter evenly into mini muffin cups. I like to use a cookie scoop, which makes scooping super easy. If using a regular muffin tin, be sure to only use enough batter to form 12 muffins (they won't be full).
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow muffins to cool and then serve!


Use certified gluten free oat cereal and oats to make these gluten free. You could also add an egg for extra protein if your child tolerates egg!

Store in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or refrigerate.
