Baking is my favourite form of cooking. It fills the house with the wonderful smell that I can only describe as the “baking” smell. My family loves it and when I bake I know that the whole family is waiting in anticipation and those that cant wait are stealing the batter or chocolate chips or even just the butter!
My Parents are going back to Lucknow in a couple of days and I am busy packing goodies for my six year old niece. She is the fourth generation foodie in our family that I have seen. My grandparents, parents, us and then our kids. Amongst all the the kids in the family she is the most interested in food, just not eating but also cooking and describing food (thanks in no small measure to MasterChef on TV!). Her favourite pass time is watching food channels.
Like the vegan coconut muffins in these muffins also, in the interest of health, I have tried to reduce the quantity of all purpose flour and replacing it with whole wheat flour. Bananas make the muffins moist and also reduces the quantity of white sugar. Kids love to eat sweets, however to ensure that they do not consume it in excess I always make smaller portions / servings. This way the younger kids will not waste and bigger kids will be satisfied with one. These muffins go well with a glass of milk. This comes in handy in the early morning for my daughter’s breakfast.
This one is my favourite Chocolate muffin recipe. I get perfectly moist muffins topped with a nice crunchy walnut crumble crust.
