Eggless Apple - Banana Muffins

Hello Everybody ! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Last week we were feeling like summer has started as it was burning with 95 deg temp already. Weekend was cloudy and cool, today we had thunderstorm warning. The weather is crazy, can't predict or plan anything. We did not send our daughter to school today as it was raining very heavily, she enjoyed her long weekend and by evening, she wanted to go to school :-).
Last weekend, one of our friends planned a picnic to a park so that everybody can meet and kids also can have fun together. We were not sure about the weather, as it was raining in the morning and by afternoon it was hot and very humid. We decided by afternoon to meet around 4:00 pm. So, we all decided to make something light and healthy snacks/dinner. I made this egg less muffins as a dessert. Kids enjoyed playing, all men enjoyed talking about their usual stuff and also looking after the kids, we (ladies) walked a small trail talking when the trail will end :-). Totally, everybody had a great time with nice dinner.
So, coming to the muffin, it is quick and easy to make in short amount of time. I made two batches, one with chocolate chips for the kids and the other without them for adults.

Ingredients:

Apple finely chopped - 1

Big ripe banana - 1

Raisins - 1/2 cup

Pecans - 1/2 cup (toasted and chopped roughly)

Flax seed powder - 1 Tb spoon (optional)

Plain flour - 1 cup

Wheat flour - 1 cup

Sugar - 1 - 1 1/4 cup (I have added 1 cup)

Baking powder - 3/4 tsp

Baking soda - 1/2 tsp

Cinnamon powder -1/4 tsp

Milk - 1 cup

Butter - 3/4 cup

Lemon juice - 1/2 Tb spoon

Chocolate chips – 1 cup (Optional)

Method:

  • Toast pecans at 350 deg for few min, then cool and chop roughly.
  • Sieve dry ingredients together 2-3 times.
  • Melt butter in large bowl, add milk and gently fold in dry ingredients.
  • Smash banana, and sprinkle lemon juice over it to avoid it from turning black.
  • Peel the skin of apple and chop to very small pieces and sprinkle lemon juice.
  • Add raisins, banana and apples, mix very lightly.
  • Mix in chopped pecans and chocolate chips.
  • Keep mixture a bit lumpy, and do not mix too much.
  • A lumpy batter makes better muffins.
  • Pour spoonfuls of mixture greased in muffin trays, or in small cups.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 350 deg C for 20 minutes or till done.
  • Serve hot or cold. Makes: 18-20 cup sized muffins.

Congrats on your award. I am curious as to how the texture was for this cake? Usually the ones without eggs are very dense, is there something that you did to make it lighter?
