Here I am after a long time (Started working then second pregnancy, birth to a baby boy who is 9 months today) with a new post on baking. All thanks to Arya,my older son, because of him, I started baking and restart blogging, which I always love to do. Th
This is a simple recipe yet healthy and delicious soft muffins for your kids and family. You can serve in for morning breakfast with milk/coffee and as a snack in kids lunch. I made mini version and aways prefer indulging into little bites. 🙂
I revised one of the recipes online and completely changed the proportions and replaced ingredients with whole grain flax seed, coconut oil. Since Arya is a big fan of chocolate cakes, cookies, cupcakes and as a mom I always limit his daily or weekly intake and at some point he feels sad and few tantrums, even though he listens to me most of the times, at times i feel like to feed him the healthy baking goods. I am always NO to store brought baking products. I fear they add lots of cane sugar, too much artificial colors and not so organic. Hence whenever I bake at home for or for family and friends parties, I always make sure to cut down atleast 1/2 cup of sugar from what the recipe says and alway use organic eggs, milk and butter. Well to say precisely, I mostly try for healthy baking. Okay.. not much delay, here is the recipe I followed for these muffins. The below recipe yields 24 mini muffins.
1 cup Organic unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 tbsp Almond Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
a pinch salt
2 tbsp Organic Whole Flax Seeds
1/2 cup Mini Semi sweet Chocolate Chips (depends on how many you want)
1/2 Cup Organic Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Organic Coconut oil, melted
1 cup + 1/4 cup Butter Milk (I used homemade yogurt and churn it to buttermilk)
Firstly in a big bowl, mix all dry ingredients (Two sets of flour, baking soda, salt, Almond flour) and then add flax seeds.
In a small bowl, mix sugar and coconut oil and stir it with beater until the sugar dissolves in the oil. Then add butter milk and Vanilla extract to it and mix well.
Now pour the Oil + Sugar mixture to the dry ingredients and mix them well but do not overmix. Finally add the chocolate chips and fold into the batter.
Preheat the Oven to 350F, fill the muffin pan with the batter and bake it for 10-12 minutes or until the fork comes out clean of batter. Let them sit on the pan for few minutes and slowly transfer them to the cooling rack.
That is it!!! Done!!! Enjoy the bites with the family. 🙂
