Banana Blueberry Oats Muffins

Hi  !!!

Today I am going to share  another  healthy recipe of muffins  with oats, banana & blueberry which I tried few days back.  I came across this recipe in youtube "Baking with Nadia" and by the end of the video tutorial I just had to try out this recipe. 

You can assemble the entire dish with very few ingredients & can give it to your kids without feeling guilty.

To make these you will need following ingredients :

Bananas - 3 nos. mashed
Oats powder- 2.5 cups(churn the oats in the processor for a min or two)
Yoghurt - 1 cup
Walnut - 1 cup finely chopped
Flax seeds - 1-2 tsp
Powdered sugar - 1/2 - 1 cup depending upon the sweetness you desire (optional)
Eggs - 3 nos
Baking Powder - 1.5 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Blueberries frozen - 1 bowl
Cinnamon powder  - (optional)


Pre heat your oven at 200 deg C

Beat the eggs well and mix it with mashed bananas. Then add the sugar and give it a thorough mix. Keep it aside. Now mix the dry ingredients ie oats, chopped walnuts, baking soda, baking powder and flax seeds. Now bring the dry and the wet ingredients together and mix it properly. Now add the frozen blueberries and a dash of cinnamon to give it a nice flavour.

Transfer the batter to already greased muffin moulds and bake it for 20-25 min.

Mine took 30 min to cook and this is how it looks. The recipe doesn't demand this but I topped the muffins with choco chips before baking it so as  to make it more alluring for the kids.

Do try out this healthy recipe with goodness of oats, banana, berries & flax seeds  and which is devoid of oil/butter/flour. For more details visit here.

Cornmeal Muffins (eggless)

Hi !!!

Hope all of you are enjoying your weekend.

Here in Delhi its very hot. I  don't feel like going out until & unless its very important & urgent. I have been planning to watch a movie for sometime now, but due to this scorching heat I dropped the idea and decided to laze around at home, watching Tv and doing the regular household chores.

I was just rummaging  through my grocery stock for some kitchen items, and surprisingly I found this packet of cornmeal which I had bought during winters and which I had totally forgotten about. Impromptu,  I decided to make something sweet out of it. Little bit of net surfing &I came across this super easy muffin recipe shared by nisha madhulika in youtube.

Her recipes are quite simple and very easy to follow. So I tried out this muffin recipe & as you can see,  it came out quite soft and delicious.

These eggless recipes come in quite handy .... when you ran out of eggs or especially on  days like mon, tues & thurs when I don't eat eggs/non veg & on my kids insistence I need to prepare baked items. 

Now coming to the muffins you will need the following elements:


Cornmeal - 1/2 cup
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Powdered sugar - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 3/4 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Curd - 1/2 cup in room temp.
Butter - 1/4 cup
Vanilla essence - 1/2 - 1 tsp


Pre-heat your oven at 180 deg C

First of all we need to mix  the wet ingredients ie butter & curd together and whisk it properly. In a separate bowl we will mix the dry stuff ie the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda & baking powder. After this we will bring both these mixtures together and mix them properly. In the end add vanilla essence accordingly. You can also add nuts to give it more crunch.

Now grease your muffin moulds with butter / oil and transfer the batter. According to the recipe we need to bake them for 10-15 min. , but mine took a bit longer...... around 20-25 min. Just check it with a toothpick, if it comes out clean then its ready otherwise you need to give it some more time.

Take them out of the oven and bring it to room temp. before de-moulding it.

TA.. DA your muffins are ready ......

Don't they look scrumptious ?????

Do drop in with your comments / feedback ....

Till next time bye & take care !!! :)
