Mini Sweet Potato Muffins (10 Months +)
Up to about 10 months, my daughter would eat anything in sight. I secretly laughed at a friend whose little boy, 7 months older than Libbie, wouldn’t touch anything except waffles for months. MY child would NEVER be like that, of course! Well, fast-forward in time, and at 13 months my girl will hardly touch any food. For weeks she will insist on surviving on bread, bananas, applesauce, and string cheese. It baffles me that this can be the same child who would happily gnaw on a cube of cantaloupe at 7 months and adored green bean puree.
So I’ve started trying any concoction I can to get her to eat something healthy. These mini-muffins were a big hit, are baby-palm-sized, and freeze well.

Preheat oven to 350. Spray mini-muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and sugar. Stir in other wet ingredients until just combined.
