Snacks : Whole Wheat Carrot Muffins

It was monday and I was full of energy. We had a good weekend and I was all done with my afternoon routine. So, me and vihu were waiting for the elder sister – bored. I had two options – force the kid to sleep or make her afternoon interesting by baking with her.  Why I say Interesting, because she does the major part of mixing for me.  Sits cross legged in kitchen and keeps commanding why the flours are coming so late to her mixing bowl. I just love the excitement she has in her eyes when she peeps through the oven door and says – “Mummy, look cup cakes are growing!”. So, I went for the fun option and baked whole wheat carrot cupcakes for the kids. Entire process end to end took me 45 minutes.

Verdict – 5/5 ,  kids ate it up in 10 mins flat.

I picked up the recipe  from here, because  I had no eggs and had  ready made flax seeds powder in the  pantry.

Didn’t do the cheese frosting because  I was too lazy for that – still they turned out super duper awesome.



Have a good day and keep rocking!

Snacks : Jonna Jantikalu

I always want ways to incorporate millets into our home. Usually not successful, this recipe utilized the 1 kg of jowar powder we had at home. The taste is awesome and you can never tell that these are made from jowar.
