Pumpkin Muffins- Eggless

Pumpkin Muffins 
Perfect for Fall, Halloween or any time of the year. 
They are quick and easy. Let me know how you like them.

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup veg oil
  • 1½ cup self raising flour (if you are using plain flour or maida make sure to add some baking soda & powder, about ½ tsp each) 
  • 1 banana 
  • ½ Cup cocoa powder 
  • 2 tsp. vanilla essence
  • Pinch of salt
To make the pumpkin puree:
  1. Wash, peel and dice the pumpkin into small cubes. User about 1 cup of pumpkin cubes. 
  2. Heat a pan, Transfer the pieces along with 1/2 cup jaggery or a cup of brown sugar.  
  3. Cover and cook for 5-10 mins or until the pumpkin cooks through. 
To make the muffins: 
  1. In a large bowl add the oil, sugar and vanilla. Whisk together till combined. 
  2. Next add the banana and pumpkin puree. Whisk again till a smooth mixture is formed. The banana helps to bind muffins and acts as a substitute to egg. 
  3. Now sieve the flour, cocoa powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Combine gently till a smooth batter is formed. 
  4. Line a muffin pan with liners and scoop about a tbsp or the batter into each muffin case. Use a ice-cream scoop or a 1 tbsp. measure to transfer the batter. 
  5. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 25 mins or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. 

You can frost this if you like with some chocolate or caramel sauce.If you are making it for Halloween  you can also decorate with some candy or other Halloween decorations.
I like to serve it as is, for a nice breakfast, with some hot chai.
