Suggested Age: Self-feeding infants 9+ months

By Sherry Coleman Collins, MS, RDN, LD

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray mini-muffin pan with pan spray. Mix the dry ingredients, powdered peanut butter through cinnamon, in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, mix the wet ingredients, egg, egg white, puree, and maple syrup if using. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until no more flour is visible. Divide between 8 mini-muffin tin holes. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.

Note: Each muffin contains approximately 2g peanut protein and 1.2g egg protein

NIAID recommends introducing peanut foods to infants as early as 4-6 months to help prevent a peanut allergy. Visit for more information.
