Easy Eggless Wheat Germ Muffins

healthy wheatgerm muffins

Wheat Germ is one among the precious food ingredients which often fight for a place in my refrigerator. Blueberries, black current, prunes are some of the few contenders. Since getting these exotic foods is difficult here, I normally buy them in large quantities whenever I get a chance to do so.

I dry roast these Wheat germs and store them in a zip lock inside the refrigerator. These then get into my baking, porridge, chapattis, chutneys and various other recipes. Wheat germ gives a beautiful nutty flavor to the dishes.

My daughter who is a bit finicky about trying anything new, gets easily deceived by these egg less Wheat germ Muffins. She loves to take the Muffins to her school, whenever I bake the. And she likes slightly thin muffins which she can eat it without opening a big mouth. I filled the molds a little less than 2/3rd, a cross between scones and muffins.

  • FOODESSA said:

    I really appreciate the fact that you roasted your wheat germ…not many do that. I actually keep it in the freezer so that it keeps even fresher.

    Sanjetta, because of you along with a few other bloggers that bake eggless…I gave some brownies a try with lots of bananas. Honestly, they weren’t too bad. However, I’ll need to practice a little more ;o) LOL

    Ciao for now,
