We are starting the second week of BM#61, I will be sharing some Baked Snacks for Kids. I guess when it comes to the baked snacks, I really don't have to think much. There are so many cakes and muffins that I still have to bake.
However I had spent quite sometime, trying to select different baked dishes. In the end I settled with simple ones and I knew I should have done this ahead. However my list is ever increasing. This recipe happened when I was thinking what to pack for the boys for their snack box. I happened to see this on the Instagram and didn't know if I already have such a recipe on the blog. Yes there are so many eggless muffins on the blog that I have given up to check them.
All it took was some 10 minutes to get this muffin mixed and baked in next 15 mins. I did't let them taste it though. Wanted them to exercise some control on their chocolate addiction. I have been using some Dutch-Processed Cocoa Powder offlate and then my cousin got me this fresh Cocoa powder from Munnar. I had opened it recently and was taken in by the looks of that dark intense chocolaty look. Why is that one feels the urge to pen poetic verses on looking at chocolaty things? Is it only the crazy me or does it happen to all?
Anway the looks and the aroma of the cocoa powder promised such wonderful dreams, that I was happy with just those and not even a taste of the muffin. By the looks of how these muffins were received, I was sure it was well received.
