For a while, Nick has been eating "Super Porridge" from Super Baby Food for breakfast. It started with broccoli or brussel sprouts + squash or a fruit with almond butter and Nick usually finished it. It started becoming harder and harder to get it down, and we switched to no green, just squash or pumpkin and most days it worked. Well, eventually that became a challenge too, so I wanted to make some kind of finger food to get the good stuff down. I made some Quinoa Pumpkin Blueberry Muffins. They were kind of bland but did the trick!
I started with this recipe and changed it up a little bit...
PUMPKIN QUINOA BLUEBERRY MUFFINS
1 cup milk (I used coconut milk)
1 T. ground flax seeds
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 tsp. baking powder (forgot this)
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/4 cups cooked quinoa, cooled
1/2 cup blueberries
I mixed the wet ingredients together, then added in the dry ingredients, baked at 350 in 12 muffin tins for about 25-30 minutes.
Next I want to make some zucchini muffins. I'm trying to think of some foods to take on an upcoming trip that will be easy to travel with, so I have these with pumpkin and blueberries, I plan to make apple-banana pancakes and try some zucchini muffins. Then Nick will be getting in at least some fruits/veggies :)
