Mini Muffins for Minis

The idea behind this recipe was to create a perfect low-sugar snack that toddlers could enjoy! I went strongly on the amount of fresh raspberry to get this burst of fruits and vitamins, a bit of oat to bring in some fibers to provide long-lasting energy, Greek yogurt for calcium, and a light touch of maple syrup to sweeten things up, just a bit. The recipe also uses almond flour or powder, bringing in the much-needed protein the standard flour doesn’t. It’s made in small cups to prevent overindulging and to share easily with others. This treat is easy to pack in the lunch box of toddlers, kids, and even grown-ups!

Refined Sugar vs. Natural

While this muffin recipe offers the option to sprinkle powdered sugar on top, it can easily be omitted. It’s important to note that refined sugar, typically derived from plants or roots, undergoes a process to transform it into white or brown crystals. Essentially, refined sugar mainly consists of sucrose and lacks other significant nutrients. On the other hand, natural sweeteners such as honey, agave, or maple syrup are often less processed and contain more vitamins and minerals. Additionally, refined sugar has a higher glycemic index, which is less desirable. Therefore, if necessary, I prefer utilizing natural sweeteners. In this recipe, the almonds, raspberries, yogurt, and vanilla extract naturally contribute hidden sugars, bringing sweetness to the snack.

Ultra Moist Treats

The Greek yogurt makes these super moist and creamy, and raspberries being whole might bring in some extra liquid. The oats absorb some of the excess moisture if needed. While mixing in the raspberries, try to get them to break, but not completely. You still want this burst of fruit here and there.

Substitutions

This recipe could use blueberry, cherry, or blackberry instead. Although if intended for kids, try not to leave big chunks of fruit in the treats. The almond powder and oats could be replaced by standard flour, making it simply 2 cups of flour. If you have a sweet tooth, you can double the amount of maple syrup or add a bit of refined sugar to your muffins. The mini-sized could easily be standard-sized, with or without the tin. Add 5 minutes to the cooking and check with a toothpick if cooked through.

Storage

You can easily keep these in an air-tight container at room temperature for a day or two, in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, and in the freezer for a few months.

FAQ

Could I use dried or frozen berries?

Yes, of course!

Could I make them in a sized muffin rack?

Yes! These were made small because they are toddler or BLW friendlier. Adjust the cooking time to 5-10 minutes more.

Does regular Yogurt work instead of the Greek type?

Of course, although slightly less fat, it might result in a drier muffin. Check this out for more information on Greek vs. plain yogurt.
