I wanted to try a muffin with rice flour ever since I saw Blueberry Rice Muffins recipe from Cooking on the Side. I adapted the recipe of Eggless Apple Cinnamon Muffins by Tarla Dalal and tweaked it to include rice flour. I used both whole wheat flour and rice flour to make these muffins. I was eagerly waiting to know how the dish would turn out and I am pretty happy with the result.

The muffins were soft and moist with the goodness of whole wheat flour and rice flour. The presence of rice flour could be felt easily and I expected this. The taste was somewhere between wheat flour muffins and rice cakes but I loved it! Here goes the recipe of Eggless Apple Cinnamon Muffins using whole wheat flour and rice flour!
