Sunshine muffins – Whole wheat filled with Blueberry and pineapple (Dairy free and Eggless)

Sunshine muffins final


Sunshine muffins are a healthy muffins for a breakfast treat. This portable sweet treat contains whole wheat flour, sunflower spread, dates molasses with fresh pineapple and blueberries. These are dairy free, eggfree & sugar free cupcakes. I just layered fresh fruit but if desired it can be combined with sugar and then layerd for caramelisation.

Sweet treats for breakfast don’t have to be dry and tasteless. Thought there is no sugar added the natural blends of sweet blueberries and pineapple and dates mollasees adds the taste. Blue berries are loaded with Good for you antioxidants.. They make a perfect snack even for midday or anytime of the day.
