Are you stuck on what to make for favors for an upcoming baby shower? I always like food favors because people love receiving delicious treats. It’s also a great option for a co-ed baby shower. Rather than make typical cookies or cupcakes for people to take home, try making some delicious recipes with baby food! Baby food favors could include muffins, mini loaves and more! One of my favorite treats to make with baby food are these Strawberry Banana Crumb Muffins.
Strawberry Banana Crumb Muffins:
These muffins are quick and easy to make. For favors, they can be placed in a single cupcake box along with a personalized sticker and ribbon.

More Baby Food Favors:
With a slight change to the above recipe (swapping the two types of baby food), you can make a variety of other muffins. Here are some delicious ideas:
- use 2 jars of banana baby food and add in a 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts for banana nut muffins
- use 2 jars of carrot baby food and add in 1/2 cup of raisins for carrot raisin muffins
- use 2 jars of carrot baby food and add in 1/4 cup of sweetened shredded coconut for coconut carrot muffins
- use 2 jars of pumpkin baby food and add in 1/4 cup of drained diced pineapple for pumpkin pineapple muffins
We also have a FREE printable baby shower favor box that would fit these muffins perfectly.
