Eggless Dates Walnut Muffins | Easy Breakfast Muffins

I was waiting to try muffins once I got my muffin pan.First of all, it wasnt easy for me to get the muffin pan then came the pain of getting the liners for the muffins. The ones I got and have used here are very thin so used 2 liners for each muffin(yes just for the pics sake :))
Muffins are easy to make and have the advantage of flopping very rarely. Also it bakes quickly atleast most of them and does not make us wait long to dig in :)

Eggless Dates Walnut Muffins Recipe
I was very much thrilled to try muffins for the first time and to my surprise it turned out well too. The above mentioned quantity gives 6 large muffins. It doesnt need any extra frosting, I just topped them with chopped walnuts for the extra look for the pics :O This is one easy recipe, just fold in all the ingredients together with the exact measurements and your yummy muffins are ready in no time without any extra effort - Perfect for the lazy me and the main thing is that its a low fat version too.

Eggless Dates Walnut Muffins Recipe
Method:

1.Sieve maida, baking powder and baking soda together for twice, set aside. Cream butter,oil and sugar until soft.Then add vanilla essence and whisk well.

2.Then add dates to hot milk(heat 1/4 cup milk)and allow it to sit for 10mins. By then, the dates would have softened and cooled.Now grind it in a mixer till a pasty consistency. Bits of dates here and there is ok too. Add the dates paste to the butter sugar mixture.

Grease 6 cups of a muffin pan with little butter. Spoon mixture into muffin pan, bake for 20-25 minutes until a fork inserted comes out clean.

This is for sure a must try for all dates lovers. The muffins were very delicious....Isnt that interesting?! No eggs and yet the muffins turned out good.
Eggless Dates Walnut Muffins RecipeMy Notes:
  • If you dont want to add butter then add 4 - 5 tbsp oil in total for this recipe.
  • You can even top it with nutella for extra yum.
  • I forgot to grease the liners, grease it with oil so that the muffins come out clean.

  53. Hi Sharmi,

    Please tell me, can we try this by skipping the dates ?

    ReplyDelete
  54. @Sarala : This recipe has very little butter so the only main taste comes from dates so I recommend adding it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thank you for posting this recipe. I tried it out yesterday and was very pleased with the outcome. I added half a banana also. Miffins were very soft and delicious.
