Eggless Lowfat Pumpkin & Dates Muffins

If you love having eggless muffins for our breakfast like me, this muffins are for you.I went for both pumpkin and dates puree  for making this wonderful looking muffins. Obviously its a wonderful way to sneak the famous iron rich healthy dates and none at home will definitely find out the famous 'secret ingredient'. I used cinnamon and nutmeg powder in this muffins,these both spice powders completely masked the smell of pumpkin and dates. Just have two of this muffins for your breakfast with a cup of coffee to kick start your day,these muffins will definitely satisfy you. Am sending this muffins to my own event Healthy Diet- Healthy Finger Food guest hosted by my wonderful friend Preeti of Isingcakes.

For making dates puree, just soak 10 or 15numbers of  deseeded dates in hot water,grind as smooth paste with enough soaked water, this is how i prepared my dates puree.You can use very well store bought purees or canned ones for this muffins but somehow i like to make these kind of purees with fruits myself at home. If you want you can also go for chopped dates instead of dates puree.


1+1/2cups Whole wheat flour
1/2cup All purpose flour
1/2tsp Baking soda
1tsp Baking powder
1tsp Cinnamon powder
1/4tsp Nutmeg powder
1/2tsp Salt
1cup Oil
3/4cup Sugar
1tsp Vanilla extract
1/4cup Dates puree
3/4cup Pumpkin puree

Preheat the oven to 350F, line the muffin cups with paper liners and keep aside.

Sift the flours,baking soda,baking powder, spice powders and salt and keep aside.

In an another bowl,whisk together the oil,sugar,dates puree and pumpkin puree,vanilla extract until the sugar gets well dissolved

Fold in the flour mixture gently and mix with a spatula,dont overmix.

Fill the muffin cups with this batter, bake in middle rack for 20 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Cool completely and enjoy with a cup of coffee.
