Thanks to The Women Bloggers, LLC and its advertiser #SoapBoxInfluence for helping me create quick recipes for busy Moms. Bite-sized Mini Muffins and an Oatmeal Honey Sugar Scrub, both with less than 5 ingredients! #CookingwithGerber
A bite-sized breakfast treat that you can make with 3 ingredients? Yep. These Mini Muffin Bites, with a secret ingredient, are seriously just 3 ingredients. Mix them together, spoon the batter into a mini muffin pan, and bake for 10 minutes. Start to finish takes about 15 minutes, perfect for a busy morning. It makes 12 mini muffins (the size of my mini muffin pan).
Oh, and the secret ingredient? That would be Gerber Oatmeal Cereal.
These bite sized breakfast muffins are perfect for kids of any age. Littlest isn’t the best breakfast eater in the world, but he can pop a few of these in his mouth and be ready for school in the morning. He could use the extra vitamins and minerals in the cereal, too! If you have a toddler at home who is still eating pureed baby food they make a great dip for the muffins.
Bite-Size Mini Breakfast Muffins
- 1 banana (mashed)
- 1/2 cup Gerber Oatmeal Cereal
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- Combine all ingredients together
- Pour batter into mini muffin pan
- Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees
The Gerber Oatmeal Cereal is available at Walmart, as well as all the other ingredients you need for the mini muffins and my Oatmeal Honey Sugar Scrub.
Once again I’m using the Gerber Oatmeal Cereal. This recipe bumps up the ingredient list, but just by 1. That’s a whole 4 ingredients for a DIY scrub you can make at home.
There is one ingredient where you get to make a choice, and that’s with the oil that you use. I used sesame oil for my scrub, you can use the carrier oil of your choice. I wanted a scrub that was completely edible (not that I’m planning on eating it, but you never know with kids).
Oatmeal Honey Sugar Scrub
- 1/2 cup Gerber Oatmeal Cereal
- 1/4 cup oil (carrier oil of your choice)
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- Essential Oils (optional)
- Combine all ingredients
You can use the scrub as a facial scrub or in the shower. For your face I recommend wetting your face with warm water and then applying a small amount of the scrub to your skin and gently massaging your face using small, circular motions. For best results leave the scrub on your face for 5-10 minutes (if you have the time). Rinse your face with warm water and pat dry.
You can also use the scrub in the shower to exfoliate your entire body.

I have used baby foods in my cookies and muffins. They make the cookie naturally sweeter without all the sugar.
I will definitely give this a try for my toddler. I think it’s a healthier snack!
