Eggy Peanut Butter Muffins

Sherry Coleman Collins, MS, RDN, LD

Groundbreaking research has found that early introduction of potential allergens like peanuts and eggs can actually reduce the chances of developing an allergy to that food. Once each potential allergen has been introduced and tolerated, it’s essential to continue offering these foods for sustained exposure. These Eggy Peanut Butter Muffins are perfect for little hands to feed themselves and are a nutritious option so parents can feel good about serving it at breakfast or snack time.

 

Recommended for self-feeding infants 9 months+.

Each muffin contains 2g Peanut protein and 1.2g Egg protein.
