Pumpkin Bites

Admittedly, I first created these many years ago as a “healthy fall donut” but they have stuck around all year around at our house. These are so many great things about these guys. They combine whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour so you aren’t left with too dense of finished product but still get a lot of great benefits of the whole grain. These all have pumpkin and flaxseed to add some extra nutritional boosts.

They are easy to whip up but I like to bake an extra batch to freeze for later. They can be thawed or reheated to enjoy as a snack or breakfast when time is running low.

Recipe Notes
  • Freezer Alert! These can be baked in batches in advance and frozen in a large ziploc freezer bag. Great for meal prep, a quick breastfast before school, or even prepping for a new baby.
  • Traditional Weaning: Tear or cut into small bite-sized pieces. I like to moisten these with a little bit of melted butter. Watch babe to ensure he/she is not putting handfuls in their mouth at a time in case the bread balls up once in their mouth.
  • Baby Led Weaning: Instead of dallops form into finger shapes and bake!
