Fingermillet/ragi banana choclate Muffin


 A healthy and tasty dessert  prepared  for  my  kids,  who  just loves  muffins  and  chocolate.As a mom I  wanted  to take a healthy  turn   on  it. Another matter  of  concern  is  my  little Man is a  banana  hater too so I  wanted  to  hide  the   banana  flavour  as  much  possible. Thus I  decided  to  make  some  changes  to the  healthy banana  bread  recipe.I  used partly Fingermillet  or Ragi  and  partly  whole  wheat  and   added  cocoa.
