Wholewheat Orange Choco chip Muffins | Eggless Baking

After the chocolate overdose in yesterday's Triple Chocolate Cupcakes, I needed something I could bite into :) So, one of my fav combos - Orange and chocolate (actually my best ever is Ginger OR chilli with chocolate), and this is a great healthy breakfast option.

No refined sugar or flour. Just plain everyday pantry essentials and you have a sumptuous muffin for snack or breakfast time. I am waiting for the summer vacation to make this again in larger quantities for the frequent hunger pangs that strike kids :)
