Eggless Poha Muffin


Poha is nothing but rice flakes.  This is my first trial with poha in muffins and eggless version.  I have to say it turned out quite successful . Simple ingredients which can be  mixed up in  minutes and bake it.  This simple and low fat muffin would make an ideal breakfast or snack.

Ingredients:
Poha or rice flakes- 50 g
Wholewheat flour- 150 g
Brown Sugar- 70 g
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Olive oil- 60 ml
Buttermilk- 150 ml
Banana- 1 mashed
Baking powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Bicarbonate of soda- 1/4 tsp


Method:
Soak the rice flakes in water for 10 minutes until they look soft and mushy.  Add all the dry ingredients to the rice flakes.
Mash the banana well, add the buttermilk, vanilla essence and oil, mix it well. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. 
Preheat the oven to 190 degree Celsius.  Grease a muffin tray and line with muffin cases.  Spoon the mixture equally among the muffin cases.  Bake it in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.  Serve the muffin while they are still warm drizzled with some honey or maple syrup.


Note:
Do not overmix the muffin mix, it will result in a stodgy muffin.  If you are looking for a light and airy muffin, mix until they are just combined.
