Wish you all a very happy and fun filled New Year! I know I have been missing from the blog for sometime and keep saying I will be regular, but life got little busy and blogging took a back-step. With things settled down, I hope to blog regularly 😊 I'm starting this New Year with a healthy muffin recipe which I baked as part of the Bread Bakers. Our host Pavani of Cook's Hideout asked us to bake a healthy bread with or without yeast which can be using whole grains, no sugar, gluten-free etc.
I found this delicious and healthy muffin recipe in Ambitious Kitchen. This muffin is made with almond meal and flax seed meal and the good thing is there is no sugar, no butter and just 1 tablespoon of oil. I did little tweak and added some cacao powder and maple syrup as my bananas were not that sweet. The muffins were less sweeter, but the chocolate chunks added that extra sweetness. I used dark chocolate bar, but you can use one with less cocoa. Whether you are following a healthy diet or not, try these moist and soft muffins. I'm sure you and even kids will love it!
Notes and Tips
- Cacao powder is optional. You can substitute with cocoa powder.
- Maple syrup is optional. My bananas were not that sweet so I added maple syrup.
- Original recipe calls for apple cider vinegar.
