Eggless Butterless Sugarless Ragi Banana Choco-chip Muffins | Vegan Ragi Banana Muffins

One of my recent trials in the kitchen was with Palm Jaggery/ Karuppati syrup. I had got this idea from Priya aks of using Palm Jaggery as syrup for daily tea and I wanted to make use of a big batch of this syrup using karupatti which was lying unused in the kitchen and I felt it was time to use it up. Thank you aks for the syrup idea, it is fantastic. And I made aks Choco Ragi Paniyaram using this syrup and it turned out so fabulous that I wanted to give a try to using this syrup in baking and vola I made ragi, banana muffins sweetened with an Indian natural sugar Karupatti/ Palm Jaggery adn the result was a fabulous moist and tasty muffin that is best for those who want to go on a low sugar or no sugar diet and also for those who are looking at baking healthy for their family. Give it a try and I am sure you will not spot that there is no sugar in this muffins. Also wanted to say that these muffins are vegan (no dairy), egg-free, butter-free and Sugarless too... doesn't this sound amazing? Please drop in your thoughts about these muffins below :-)


Recipe Source ~ Own

Makes ~ muffins


Ragi flour - 1 cup

All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Dark Chocolate chips - 3-4 tbsp
Over ripe bananas - 3
Oil - 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
Palm Jaggery syrup - 3/4 th cup (read notes below)
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp


Line a cupcake tin with liners and set aside. Preheat oven to 365 F or 178 C, take 2 bowls in one mash the banana, add the palm jaggery syrup, oil and vanilla combine well and set aside. In the other bowl add both flours (ragi, all purpose), baking powder, baking soda and combine well using a hand whisk or you could sieve them. Take 1 tbsp of this flour mix and sprinkle on the chocolate chips and set aside. Now add the wet ingredients to the dry, once well combined add the chocolate chips and mix well. The batter would be thick, tip into liners on cupcake tray and bake for 20-25 mins until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes clean. Once done remove from oven and let it cool on a cooling rack on the tin for 15 mins then remove the tin and place muffins on the cooling rack until it comes to room temperature. Now serve along with your cuppa tea/coffee

Cooks Wisdom

- You can alternatively use brown or white sugar 1/2 cup

- You can use nuts or raisins for this muffins instead of choco chips
- I used dark chocochips for a vegan option you can use milk chocochips too
- Do not over beat the batter else the muffins will lose its texture
- Boil 1/2 cup water and add 1 cup palm jaggery to it and let it boil until dissolved  you can store excess syrup in an air tight container and keep it in room temperature. This syrup can be used for daily tea
- Note - since the muffins had banana, diabetics must have small potions and also palm jaggery is said to be a good alternate to white sugar. This does not mean that you can indulge in a big portion. Take care and check with your doctor for further clarifications.
