Since maa is here with me on holiday, we are having a gala time 🙂 she has a thing for sweet tooth, so every now and then she is been asking me to cook something sweet to satiate her craving for sweets.
Last time when she came I made choco chip muffins & she just can’t stop praising about those & this time again she asked me to make them, but i have a plan! This time I am gonna play around with the ingredients & create something richer, delicious & off course healthy.
Last weekend I bought some cherries as they are a new entrant in the super market & I picked a pack. Then I thought of combining cherry & dark chocolate to bake these beautiful muffins & yes I am making them with oats flour & sugar free, as I don’t want to stop myself hogging them:) I am 200 percent sure you will just love these guilt free dessert:) Please do try & share your feedback on them.
