Baby Iron Muffins

These muffins are filled with lots of good stuff to get iron into your little one. They are sweetened with pureed dried apricots and blackstrap molasses, both which are high iron foods. Plus they are filled with oats, pumpkin, blueberries and other good stuff that will help get that iron into your baby.Iron Muffin recipe that your baby will love

  1. 4% seems pretty low in iron, no? How many my mg? I’m thinking of adding raisins to get more in there. These look yummy though!
