Ragi Chocolate Chip Muffin

Know What You Eat: Finger millet is especially valuable as it contains the amino acid methionine. Its Rich In Thiamin; Good Source of Fiber & Iron; A Sodium Free Food; Low Fat; Vegetarian. It's favoured as part of prescribed diet for diabetic. The flavor of ragi is not liked by everyone, I tried to combine wheat flour, oats flour, with ragi and chocolate chips to subside the typical flavor of ragi..The muffin came out really spongy and tastes good with chocolate in it. Enjoy the healthy baking.
