FINGERMILLET/RAGI BANANA CHOCOLATE MUFFINS.
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.
