Lily's Egg Muffin Recipe
Let’s be honest you guys..
I’m pretty fortunate that my baby loves to sleep, also he loves food! Two of the most challenging things we have as mothers when it comes to our children. From the time Felix was six months, I started introducing him to some purees. i pureed sweet potatoes, squash, a few greens and he loved it all. He absolutely loved it. Once he hit eight months I started to introduce solids and giving him the foods we ate. Of course I had spoken to our family doctor about it, I inquired about adding salt and seasoning and the one thing my doctor say was, “listen, our kids need flavour”. He gave me the okay to season Felix’s food and even encouraged it. They are at the age when they're getting used to flavours and new foods.
So Im going to share with you guys one of my most favourite recipes to make Felix, The Egg Muffin recipe (the boy LOVES them). This recipe is perfect for lunch, for breakfast, shoot I’d even make it for dinner. They're so easy to make that I can always switch up which vegetables I use. This particular one I am sharing with you guys is the spinach egg muffins ( again, so easy to switch out what you don't like). I really do hope that you guys enjoy it. PLEASE make sure your kids are not allergic to anything I have included in here.
Please let me know what you guys think of the recipe. Also if you have any other questions or request feel free to comment down below or shoot me a message. I’d love to share more recipes including my favourite, the banana covered pancake (so good!).
Tip: I usually make my filling the night before and keep it in the fridge. I find that cooking the vegetables before hand really bring the flavours to life (I’m an African, I need flavour ya’ll!) Then in the morning I just whip up my eggs and its good to go.
