Eggless Chocochip Coconut Muffins & Bread - 2 recipes

I write this post with a happy heart. This is one of the first things I baked after my 2nd daughter was born. I approached the trusted but packed-up oven with a little trepidation. The goody combination of Chocochips and nuttiness from the dessicated coconut was a heady combination, and trust me when I say that when the the bread / muffins were baked - they were dense and nutty and chocolatey and had the right amount of sweetness - I did a lil jig to confirm that I can indeed bake. 

This may not qualify for versatile baking. Like I said earlier, I am not a frosting-on-the-cake kind of person - I believe that any sweet bake already has the calories through butter & Sugar, and that we dont need more.Unless, its of course a cheesecake.... ummmm...that I am looking forward to testing out sometime soon :-) Till then I keep counting the calories for myself and the family.

This post is also special coz Blogging Marathon (which this post goes to) kicks off today with a month-long marathon. 20+ bloggers are taking part in this super exciting series which would see an array of dishes across 4 - 5 interesting themes. That's close to 500 + dishes in a month :-) 

This week, being Occassions. And I chose birthday parties & Festivals as the theme, and for the next 8 days starting today, you would see dishes across this theme.

Meanwhile try out this super yummy muffins for you. I am sure your kid will be hooked as was mine.

Prep time : 10 mins | Baking Time : 15 to 18 mins per batch | Makes : 12 mini muffin + 200 gm bread.
Note: Oven temperature might vary depending upon settings and size

Dry Ingredients:
Wholewheat flour - 1/2 cup
APF - 1/2 cup
Eggless Custard Powder - 2 TBSP
Baking Powder - 1 1/2 TBSP
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Cocoa Powder – 2 tsp
Cinnamon Powder - 1/2 TBSP (optional)

Chocochips - 1/4 cup, divided
Dessicated Coconut powder - 4 TBSP

Wet ingredients:
Yoghurt - 3/4 cup
Oil - 3/4 cup (any vegetable oil will do)
Brown Sugar - 2/3 cup (packed) - adjust sweetness

Method:
Sift all the dry ingredients twice over in a large bowl
In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients and blend the sugar well till its dissolved well.
Preheat the oven at 160 Deg C. Line the Muffin pans with liners or grease lightly.
Add the dry ingredients a little at a time to the wet mix and make a thickish flowing batter. Add the chocochips and coconut. Reserve some chocochips for topping.
If required, add a tsp or more of either yoghurt or vegetable oil & fill the muffin pans upto 3/4. Top with remaining chocochips
(I make 12 mini muffins and transferred the rest of the batter into a small foil box and baked it as a bread / dense cake)
Bake at 160 deg C for 15 - 18 mins or until a skewer inserted into the muffins comes clean.
Cool on a wire rack and serve.
