Whole Wheat Mango Walnuts Muffins


Muffins also known as quick bread can be easily prepared in no time.  Fruits,vegetables and nuts can be used to give different flavors to your muffin.

I tried the the Muffin made up of fresh mangoes and walnuts.These muffins are nutritious,as I have used whole wheat flour which is the gluten free. Muffins are good alternative for  breakfast or snack at tea time.
