Eggless Wheatgerm & Banana Muffins – Healthy Treat Which is Scrumptious too!
Eating healthy meals and including foods which does wonders to your body is no easy task. Our palates are more accustomed to eating what we eat day in and day out. And adding or excluding anything from the regular meal demands a big challenge. The onus invariably falls on the mom to make the recipe more appeasing for her family to at least try out the so called healthy foods. But for these Muffins, I could have never imagined my kids eating wheatgerm and banana which has past its prime! I was really surprised when I saw my kids reaching out for these muffins with a big smile. Chocolate chips were added to deceive them …mission accomplished 🙂
- 1 cup wholewheat flour
- 1/4 cup wheatgerm
- 1/2 cup mashed Banana
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup curd/yogurt
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
- 1 tsp. Baking powder
- Chocolate chips
Method: Use overripe bananas to make these Muffins. Freeze the overripe bananas till use. Take a large vessel and sift flour, baking powder and baking soda in it. Add wheatgerm in the flour mix. Peel and mash the banana with a fork in another vessel. Add curd, oil and sugar into it. Whisk the mixture till the sugar is dissolved.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold it lightly.
