Eggless Baking, Muffins

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 🙂

    Orange and chocolate is my favourite combo too , using jaggery is a super option , though I have to train my mind for using it . The muffins look fantastic.

  14. Hi,your recipe is awesome, made this cake couple of times but after i used indian choco chips my cake isn't coming out well,what went wrong can you explain
    I baked 3times with imported choco chips and later I tried with Indian choco chips it rose well then slowly sat down. TIA

    • hi. thanks for trying my recipe. I have the same issue sometimes with locally procured choice chips. Go for a good brand or that from an established company like CCDS. Also, in any sweet bakes, dust the choco chips in a tsp of flour well before adding to the batter. Good luck ! and let me know if u need any further help…

Thanks so much for dropping by.
