Eggless Orange-Corn Muffins

We have entered into yet another week of Blogging Marathon and this time I have chosen to blog about 'Something Sweet For Kids' as the theme. So I shall showcase some sweets which have been liked by the kids at home. 

After a partial cleanup of my pantry, I came across some leftover cornmeal which was occupying some prime real estate in my kitchen. That is why these muffins came along and .... disappeared in a few hours too. 

My little one gobbled them up as soon as they were done, forcing me to cool them down by huffing and puffing (her words). My older one who has a better sense of taste wanted some jelly/jam/Agave nectar/ Honey to go with it and she was very happy. I must remind myself to make these often. 

I realized that these muffins are quite healthy with no added fat and the goodness of whole wheat flour and orange juice. In fact my little one was so full after eating these muffins that she forewent her dinner and I let it be. I am not picky about what my kids eat as long as they eat a balanced meal.  
So here is how I made the muffins as part of Day 1 of BM 12.

Eggless Orange-Corn Muffins

Recipe adapted from here
Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 10 Tbsp (1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp)
Cornmeal 10 Tbsp (1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp)
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp
Agave Nectar 1/4 cup (Honey can be used instead)
Milk 1/4 cup
Fresh Orange Juice 1/4 cup (I used 1 medium sized Orange)
Orange Zest 1 tsp (Optional - I didn't add)
Apple Cider Vinegar 1 tsp (Or Balsamic Vinegar)
Applesauce 2 Tbsp ( I used sweetened one)
Salt 1/4 tsp

Note - These muffins were not too sweet. So we ate it with strawberry jelly and tried some with honey too.

Eggless Orange-Corn Muffins

Method Of Preparation - 

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare a muffin plate and arrange paper liners or grease the muffin cups.

In a bowl, add all the ingredients listed from Agave Nectar to Salt. Mix well and set aside.

Add the wheat flour, cornmeal and baking soda.

Gently mix without any lumps. Spoon the batter into muffin cups. 

Bake in the pre-heated oven for 16-18 min until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Enjoy with a jam or jelly of your choice.
