Eggless Carrot-Orange Muffins


DSC_3467-001
Hello All!!
Finally I feel energized and good spirited. It’s been a few days that it is just the two of us at home since S is out of the country. We are spending a lot of time with each other talking, watching TV and movies, going to mall and cooking.. I’m into one pot meals which are wholesome, nutritious and saves my time too..
Since it’s holiday time, the kid is more hungry than usual, I guess free times makes you feel like nibbling something every now and then. But this is where being a mom I need to monitor and keep a control as my kid is naturally inclined towards junk, he is more than happy eating wafers, namkeen mixture and more..But, the control freak mother that I’m, everything is given in small portions and then to add to his pampering I’m indulging more into baking.

It’s a recipe that I’ve come up with and I was very skeptical about the outcome but since it turned out super moist, it has already been made two times in this week.  This is such a hassle free muffin and is ready in 30mins flat with all the preparation and cooking time. And the best part is it’s loaded with carrots which are a good source of Vitamin A, that’s very important for healthy eyes and has the flavor of orange too to make it more delicious. To add a bite and crunch I’ve added the nuts and since orange and chocolate gel well, I’ve topped the muffins with some Choco chips, making these muffins more desirable any day.. The muffins turn out very light, I’ve reiterated many times that Cake made with oil is always very light( Check out the Vegan Choco Banana Cake too)..light on the tummy and weight tooWinking smile!
Sending this to my event ‘Only’ Continental Cooking hosted by Raksha’s Kitchen.
