Eggless Oats, Apple And Date Cupcakes

Eggless Oats, Apple And Date Cupcakes

The schools have started in full swing. Back to the routine of making different dishes for Aarav’s lunch box. I always strive to give healthy food for all the tiffin breaks in the school. I keep on trying new ideas for tiffin that are healthy and tasty.

Cupcake is the good option for small tiffin breaks in the school. My son loves to eat them. I thus wanted to try out a healthy cupcake recipe. I thought of using apple along with dates in making the cupcake.  I have used whole wheat flour along with the oats. I have used oil instead of butter. Cinnamon and nutmeg are used to give the flavor and aroma to the cupcakes. The combination of apple and cinnamon is simply the best. Since dates are used, the sugar needed is very less. Or you can skip sugar entirely and use honey. I have used a little amount of honey and sugar. I sometimes use one ripe banana if available. If you put banana then there is no need to put any sugar.

I make different variations of cupcakes weekly and store them in the fridge. They can last for 10-12 days. I pack one cupcake every day for tiffin (if they are still left in the fridge).

They are enjoyed best warm with a cup of tea or coffee. Besides they are a handy option for little sweet cravings. Since they are healthy you can have them guilt free.

You may need to add 1-2 tbsp of extra milk to get the desired consistency of cake batter. The amount of milk depends on the type of flour.
