Carrot, Apple, Coconut Muffins

Making Hakan's babyfood was actually pretty simple, I just pureed a bunch of fruits and veggies and he ate them.  I was able to feed him 100% organic until a little after he turned 1, it's so expensive, now it's only about 1/2 organic since he's eating what we eat now.  

He's a really good eater, we've always tried to give him new things, even if he doesn't like them, we try, try try again.  I read it can take up to 15 times for a toddler to get used to a new food/taste, so we don't give up.

I'm always looking for new recipes to make that are healthy, but still wonderfully delicious.  I recently found a new blog, Weelicious, that has a ton of toddler friendly foods, there's so many good things!
Such a happy little helper:)
This morning, Hakan and I made these Carrot, Apple, Coconut Muffins.  I know a few people who wouldn't even look at these with "carrot" in the title, but they are so delicious!  There isn't any refined sugar in them, and lots of fruit and veggies. 

Hakan's already had three, he loves them:)  I substituted spelt flour instead of wheat flour, he's somewhat allergic to wheat.
 I can't wait to try some more recipes!

I love making baby food too...sadly, we're getting out of that stage. How did that happen so quickly?!

Those muffins sound fab!

I know!? It is crazy how short of a time it is...but I can do it all over again in about 9 months when our next little one is ready for solids:)
