Broccoli Cheese Muffins

I am always on the lookout for foods that hit the trifecta: yummy, healthy, and simple to make. If a recipe checks those three boxes, you can bet it's going in the rotation and that I will share it with you! These Broccoli Cheese muffins hit it out of the park. We've taken the Baby Led Weaning (BLW) approach with my third baby, who is 8 months old, and these were a mega-hit with him! 

If you'd like more information about Baby Led Weaning, or are looking for a community of plugged in mamas on a mission to teach their kids healthy food habits early, check out my Mom, I'm Hungry group on Facebook.
