Ragi Chocolate Muffins

Ragi, one of the famous millet quite often used in Indian cuisine. You can make variety of foods with this nutritious grain, eventhough one of the famous food prepared with ragi is ragi malt or ragi koozhu. My mom never failed to feed us with this healthy grain, actually i do the same with my kids eventhough they dont like this grain very much. Fortunately, every Indian grocery here have this healthy ragi flour and i'll try to add this flour in most of dishes,especially while making breads,parathas,instant idlis etc. Usually i'll mask this grain with my family's favourite foods, for example today's muffins since chocolate is my kid's favourite i easily combined both ragi and chocolate together for making this healthy muffins.

  48. I just made these muffins for breakfast. I used 1/4 cup of spelt/coconut flour (instead of all purpose flour), flax seed for the egg and plain yogurt for the oil. I also used carob instead of cocoa and 1/4 cup of agave nectar instead of the 1/2 cup sugar.

    These muffins are delicious. Soft and moist. They baked for 25 minutes, as I had filled the cups to the top.

    I will definitely bake these again.
    Thanks.
