The Best Kid-Friendly Berry Mini Muffins

Vegan gluten-free berry mini muffins

As parents of a toddler, we are often working and creating recipes that are both healthy and delicious for him to enjoy. We decided to give it a try with our take on mini-muffins, vegan and gluten-free!

On a cold Saturday afternoon, we prepared these muffins, and they seem to be toddler-approved! My husband and I also served them for a brunch we shared with friends at our home. We used blueberries and cranberries, but you could substitute for other berries as well, such as raspberries or strawberries. I keep coming back to the memories made when preparing and sharing meals together; it’s a special time and I find is a wonderful way to start discussions, share stories, and allow laughter to fill our home.

The sweetness of these muffins is a delightful treat and the scent that fills the air as they bake is delightful as well. The flavor of the warm berries evoke a sense of warmth.
