Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 1 cup whole wheat flour, leveled (atta) or (120 grams )
  2. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  3. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder(dalchini powder)
  4. 1 Pinch of salt
  5. 1 to 2 pinch cinnamon powder for sprinkling
  6. 1/2 cup warm water or 125 ml water
  7. Jaggery 90 to 100 grams
  8. 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or regular white vinegar
  9. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or essence
  10. 3 tablespoon olive oil or any neutral flavored oil or melted butter


  1. First line a muffin tray with muffin liners. you can also grease the pan with oil instead of using muffin liners.
  2. Take the dry ingredients in a seive – 1 cup whole wheat flour (levelled), ½ tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder and a pinch of salt.
  3. Seive the dry ingredients .Keep aside.
  4. Then rinse, peel, core and chop 1 large apple or 2 medium apples, in small cubes or pieces. sprinkle a few drops of lemon juice so that the apples do not get discolored. this is optional and you can skip it( I did not add lemon juice). Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  5. In a mixing bowl or pan, take 1/2 cup warm water. you can warm the water on stove top or microwave or in a electric heater.
  6. Add 1/2 cup powdered jaggery. you can also use 1/2 cup sugar instead of jaggery.
  7. Stir very well so that all the jaggery is dissolved.
  8. Then add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or essence,3 tbsp olive oil ( if using any other oil, use a neutral flavored oil). you can also use melted butter instead of oil. Stir and mix very well.
  9. Add the sifted dry ingredients.
  10. With a wired whisk and with light hand movements, stir and mix the wet and dry ingredients together. tiny lumps are fine. don't over do the mixing. depending on the quality of wheat flour, you can add 1/4 to 1/2 cup water to get a flowing consistency in the batter.
  11. Add the chopped apples.
  12. Again with light hand movements in one or two round strokes, mix the apples with the rest of the batter
  13. Spoon the apple muffin batter in the muffin liners till 3/4 of their capacity.
  14. Sprinkle some cinnamon powder from top on all the muffins. if you have used sugar, then you can sprinkle some brown sugar from top.
  15. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees celsius for 25 to 30 minutes. till the tops are browned and a tooth pick inserted in the muffins comes out clean. Since the temperatures in all the ovens are not the same, do keep a check while baking. in an OTG, keep on the center rack and keep both the top and bottom heating elements on.
  16. After 3 to 4 minutes, remove the muffins and place them on a wired rack to cool.
  17. Serve eggless apple muffins plain as a tea time dessert with milk, tea or coffee.
