Eggless Butterless Vegan Coconut Muffin

As I said I will be making more of Muffins this edition, here's another simple and tasty Muffin version that's eggless, butterless, sugarless and to top it all it's all Vegan. I wanted to try wheat flour instead of all purpose flour. However knowing these muffins already have some new ingredients added, I didn't want to experiment so much!

I used half of brown sugar and half grated jaggary instead of refined sugar. The final muffins were so spongy and springing back when you press it down. It was surely low on sweetness and can make a great breakfast dish if you don't like very sweet muffins served for muffins. I have packed it for Konda's snack box and will have to wait for the evening to know the feedback. Though if my feedback alone is enough, I would say these tastes great!

I was supposed to bake it on Thursday along with the German bread. However it was 12 when I had completed that bread and there was no way I could get this done as well, if I was to get up early for our trip. So I was hoping I will be able to make it on time after our return. We came back late Sunday evening and this is the first thing I did. I am hoping I will get to make some more such muffins, which turn out great snacks to nibble on.
