{What My Baby's Eating} Sugar-free apple cinnamon muffins

If you missed the first post in the {What My Baby’s Eating} series, you can catch up right here.

Our son seems to be taking after me in his veggie/fruit preferences — which is to say that when it comes to the two categories of produce, veggies win just about every time. When he was younger (like, 7, 8, 9 months), he was totally fine with peaches and plums and kiwis. But lately he’s refused most fruits, and our floor has gotten treated to a lot of melon, persimmon, pear, pineapple, and banana. Lucky floor.

To get around it, I’ve been making muffins for him with grated apples (pineapple is next, heh heh heh). Older kids or adults might miss the sugar, but this baby doesn’t know the difference, and if he so much as sees one of his muffins, he won’t eat anything else. Best of all, my floor hasn’t seen a speck of them.

In other news: Congratulations to Sari, Gidi, and Rachel, who won copies of Joy of Kosher in the giveaway that ended last night. Winners, check your email for a message from me.

Will adults enjoy this too?

I think most of us are conditioned to sweetened muffins, and these aren’t really sweet. For adults, you would probably need to add 1/2 cup – 3/4 cup brown sugar, honey, silan, or whatever sweetener you prefer.

Are these suitable for babies under a year old (because of the milk)?

I didn’t give my son anything with dairy products, even cooked ones, until he was a year old, but check with your pediatrician. There are opinions both ways.

I’ve made that change in other muffins, so my guess is that it would work here, too.
