TIPS for this recipe:

  • You can substitute the ragi flour with more whole wheat flour or sorghum flour or more ground almonds.
  • Non-diabetics could use dates (about 1/3 cup) instead of sugarfree powder.
  • The freshly ground flax seed mixed with water (and set aside for 10 minutes) acts as an egg replacement so it helps with raising the flour while baking. Ensure the flax seed is ground finely so that there’s no graininess in your muffins.
