I love to have this kind of healthy muffins for mid morning or evening snacks. I always use atta, oats or other kinds of healthy flours when I am baking for such kind of regular snacking. Maida or all purpose flour is reserved for cakes during special occasions. I once made muffins using finger millet flour and my kids had them thinking it was chocolate cake. I love to use fruits in my bakes and have used apples before in my cakes. I made muffins this time and it always pairs well with some walnuts. I generally try to avoid eggs in my baking nowadays as most of the readers ask for a eggless version of the recipe when I post my bakes with eggs.But of course if you want egg in this recipe, then add one egg in place of the yogurt.
These muffins were delicious and I loved its soft and moist texture. The way it rose to form a tiny dome was also so satisfying. I had bought this muffin cases long ago and was eager to use them . I am kind of attracted to the pretty muffin liners available in the supermarket. I resist my temptation to buy each time I see them. You can also add different kinds of nuts if you dont have walnuts or even raisins do well in this recipe. So this recipe is just so forgiving and I am sure you will love the result. And as I always say, please feel free to use maida /all purpose flour if you do like the taste of whole wheat flour or oats in your bakes.
