Looking for a savoury and healthy baby led weaning meal idea that you can batch cook and prepare in advance? Then try these broccoli and courgette (zucchini) savoury muffins for babies which are not only packed full with healthy yummy greens but also super quick and easy to make.
As well as offering them to baby during your baby led weaning journey, they also make a good snack or part of a balanced evening meal for your toddler as well. I like to offer my toddler two muffins alongside some sweet potato fries or mash and a side of peas or sweet corn, practically ticking off their five a day fix in one meal.

The muffins are deliciously moist thanks to the yummy courgette and taste divine thanks to the sharp cheddar and added spices (which of course you can omit if you think the taste will be too strong for baby)
If you don’t have an egg handy, you can use an egg substitute which is 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed mixed into 3 tablespoons of warm water. The consistency is the same as one egg and works just as well.

These muffins can be stored in the fridge for three days or frozen for a month. Make sure you fully defrost them before offering them to baby. You can offer them chilled from the fridge or reheat in the oven/microwave. Make sure the muffins are piping hot and then sufficiently cooled before offering them to baby.
