As i told earlier, i can feed everyone at home easily anything with chocolates, for this month's of Magic Mingle Challenge Kalyani chosed both cucumber and walnuts as magic ingredients. The first recipe came to mind is a simple salad i do quite often with cucumber and nuts. After a long hesitation and discussion with my daughter finally prepared this muffins with cocoa powder yesterday for our evening snacks.
Grated cucumber in this muffins gives a wonderful super moist texture and none will notice the addition of cucumber in this muffins. With loads of walnuts, we just enjoyed munching these cuties,obviously these muffins vanished very quickly and my kids enjoyed even for their breakfast with their hot chocolate.Sending to my own event CWS-Oats guest hosted by Amruta Pore and Siri's Celebrating First Anniversary.
