Eggless Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

The weather here in our neck of woods for the past 3-4 days has just been gorgeous.  The temperature currently is in the 60’s and it gets even better this week. This is in stark contrast to the gloomy and bone chilling cold weather we had for the past few weeks, making this a happy and welcome change.

Frankly, it is difficult for anybody to stay indoors during such an inviting weather.  I am sure on any other day we would have come up with an excuse to be outside and enjoy the bonus weather. But not yesterday. Why? Oh, because we wanted to stay back and watch the football match. The local team that we rooted for made it to the playoffs after a long long time. This gave me ample time at home and with the weather being a motivating factor I decided to make these easy, low-fat, whole wheat banana muffin.

There is no one single source for this; I came up with this recipe after going through different websites. I used the whole wheat flour called Atta (Hindi) available in the Indian store for this. Adding Applesauce indeed made a difference and made the muffins soft and moist. Note: Since whole wheat flour is used, the taste will not be the same as that of the APF muffins. These are slightly dense and have the after taste of wheat flour in it.

Ingredients:
 

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour ( I used Atta from Indian store)
  •  1/3 cup sugar
  •  ¾ tsp baking soda
  •  1 tsp cinnamon
  •  1 big ripe banana (mashed)
  •  1 Tbsp applesauce
  •  ¼ cup oil
  •  ½ cup chopped walnuts
  •  Salt a pinch

Method: 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  •  In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. 
  •  In another big bowl, mix together mashed banana, oil, and applesauce and combine thoroughly. 
  •  Stir the flour mixture, walnuts into the banana mixture until combined. Mix well.
  •  Lightly grease and dust 6 muffin cups (or line with paper bake cups), and pour the batter into each one of them. 
  •  Bake for 25 minutes, until the tops are lightly browned.

    Have been wondering how cakes wud taste with atta flour…urs look tempting. How was the taste? much difference between APF and atta?

    Thanks Sharmi. I felt that with Atta the cake is a bit dense and you can lightly feel that taste of atta, but then in this case, the flavor of banana and cinnamon masked them.

    Muffins looks yummy!I know we were kinda excited and hooked to tv to watch cowboys….but were quite disappointed by the loss. Today is the perfect day of the week hope u r enjoying.

    That’s a very good and easy to prepare recipe Supriya. Sometimes I feel that depending upon the brand of the whole wheat flour, banana muffins taste like our sweet appam.

    Supriya, just now realized that this is a vegan muffin. Maybe you should have a vegan baking category too.

    Thanks Madhuram. I will surely create one

    Hi RC, struggling and juggling a bit this morning to do chores and blog at the same time! 😀

    Excellent looking Muffins. Apple sauce gives it a great taste and texture, bet smells great too.

    Use that Flax seed packet quickly before they do go Rancid. Omega 3 is very good for us which is abundant in oily Fish but since we don’t eat much Fish at home, Flax is God send.

    Look at that stack!! I do not actually mind the dense taste, if I like the flavor in it.Can you believe the weather? I hope it stays like this forever.

    Haven’t baked for months, but now I got a teeny weeny convection so let me see when i can start again.

    Not fair, 60’s 🙁

    The pics are gorgeous, since it is atta, I am making it. I made a banana bread with atta once, the insides were a little dense which the house people did not like much. Did your son like these ?

    Thanks Sandeepa. Today the weather here is in the 70’s today:-) Agree about the atta, that is why I made muffins instead of bread. It is a bit dense and my son did not like it much.
