Eggless Banana Muffins with Filling / Stuffed Banana Muffins

I have already posted Eggless Oats Banana Muffins few days back. This time I thought of making similar muffins, but with some filling inside to make it more interesting. These muffins might look like the regular ones, but you will be surprised when you bite something sweet inside the muffins. Sweet surprises are always good rt :). The filling can be of your choice and options are endless...chocolate chips, nuts, dates, raisins etc. Kids would be delighted if they find some of their favourites as filling. They are so easy to make and they turned out delicious. I have used only wheat flour to make the muffins, I skipped Oats this time. I have used some dates, tutti fruity and sweetened coconut to make the filling. I told my son that you will get a surprise while eating the muffins, so he was eager to eat them and was truly surprised to see his favourites inside !!


What you need?

For Muffins:

1 cup Wheat flour
1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
a pinch Salt

2 large Bananas
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 cup Yoghurt
2 tbsp Oil

For Filling:

5-6 Dates finely chopped
2 tbsp Tutti Fruity
1-2 tbsp sweetened Coconut
a pinch Cardamom powder

How to prepare?

Mix well all the ingredients under For Filling  and keep aside.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners or grease it.

Combine wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and keep aside.

Grind bananas, yoghurt, sugar and vanilla extract in a blender to a smooth paste.

Combine flour mixture and banana mixture well. Add oil to this. Do not over mix.

Pour the batter to 1/2 of each liner. Add a little filling at the centre and gently press it down. Now put a little more batter to cover the filling only till 3/4th of the liner.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in one of the muffins comes out clean.

Cool for few minutes before serving.

Makes about 6-7 muffins.



Notes:
* You can make filling of your choice.
* You can use chocolate chips, nuts, dry fruits as filling.
* You can substitute wheat flour with oats or all purpose flour.
