Breakfast Cupcake (Eggless Whole Wheat Banana Dry Fruit Muffin)

A very common occurrence during summer in most households is fast ripening of fruits. The heat does takes its toll on the perishable produce and sometimes we have to prepare something fast to salvage them. This afternoon I had to take care of 4 over ripened organic bananas that was in my fruit basket. The best thing to make with them was.....(pause waiting for your answer) banana bread of course!

Taking inventory of all the things I might need for the bread I started out with my cheerful and most excited when it comes to baking sous chef. There immediately what was supposed to be a loaf bread became a cup bread/cake/muffin. Then we changed the recipe and decided to use a bunch of healthy ingredients and made it egg and nut free. The end product was a very moist and very tasty muffin that is spelling HEALTH. My entry to: My Diverse Kitchen's WBB:Grains in my breakfast event.

  7. Thank you all for the comments.Just had one for breakfast with tea. It was moist and wonderful.I had stored them in the fridge. I liked the tartness of craisins, but my husband did not and said he would have liked it better without it. So if you plan on preparing this take a note on this.
