This has to be my biggest success story yet! Yummy baby led weaning cheese muffins that are easy to pick up, nice and moist and absolutely delicious! This is a super quick and easy baby led weaning recipe that uses ingredients that you should have available in your fridge/store cupboard. We offered these baby cheese muffins when to Felix and Dexter from six months old.
How do you make baby cheese muffins?
I combined 125g of plain flour, a teaspoon of baking powder and 250g cheddar cheese in a bowl. (The muffins that I created were SUPER cheesy, you may find they taste just as good with less cheese, especially if you are using a strong, sharp cheddar.)
In another bowl I mixed an egg and 100ml of milk. (Remember it should be formula, breastmilk or whole cows milk)
I then combined the two together to create a lumpy mixture. I scooped the mixture into muffin cases and baked for 15 minutes at 200C in a preheated fan oven.
How do you serve cheese muffins to babies?
I could eat these myself all day long. Dexter loves how he could pick them up easily and loved stuffing it in his mouth. I quickly realised he was stuffing more in before swallowing so the second time I offered them, I cut the muffin into three strips and offered him one strip at a time. He needed lots of water to wash them down but I’ve never seen him consume so much in one go.

How long can these baby cheese muffins be kept for?
I made 6 muffins in total which can be kept in an air tight container for four days or alternatively can be frozen. Just make sure you fully defrost them before serving. The less fresh they are, the less moist they become, so just remember that if you are offering them to a younger baby.

I am excited to start making these regularly but changing up the recipe. I am currently trying them with coconut flour and cauliflower cheese. Hopefully another recipe for me to share with you again soon.
- 125 grams plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 250 grams cheddar cheese
- 1 egg
- 100ml milk
- Preheat the oven to 200C and line a muffin tray
- Combine dry ingredients (flour, cheese, baking powder) in one bowl and wet ingredients (egg and milk) in a second bowl.
- Mix the two together until a lumpy mixture is formed.
- Spoon the mixture into the lined muffin tin and place in the centre of the preheated oven.
- Bake for 15 minutes. You can tell when the baby cheese muffins are ready as a skewer inserted into them will come out clean.
- Leave to cool fully before offering to baby.
