Dry ingredients

Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Organic sugar - less than 1/4 cup
Baking powder - 1/2tbsp
Baking soda- 1/4tsp
Italian Basil - 1 tsp( i used the thai basil from my organic garden, dehydrated it in microwave and crushed them
salt- 1 tsp
cheese( i used mozarella) - 1/2 cup
Chilli flakes -1/2 tsp

Wet ingredients:

Yogurt - 3/4 cup
flax goop (instead of eggs) - 1 tablespoon flax meal with 3 tablespoons of water)
Oil( olive) --1/4 cup
Red and yellow pepper - 1/4 cup
pizza/pasta sauce - 1/4 cup
Mozarella cheese - grated 1/2 cup

In a large bowl , mix the dry ingredients with hand ensuring the contents are well mixed

In another bowl, mix the flax goop, olive oil and yogurt till they blend well.

Stir wet mixture into the dry mixture till there are no lumps. Avoid stirring for long. Mix in the chopped bell peppers. the batter will be in doughy consistency

Spoon the batter into muffin cups till 2/3 full.

Top the batter with pizza sauce

                                  Sprinkle each cup with mozarella cheese, shove them into the oven( mine wason combi 2 for 20 minutes

And out comes the pizza muffins. ( my baking powder was beyond expiry date and so they don't seem puffed)

My fussy teens thoroughly enjoyed the muffins. Taste was awesome

The highlight of this was the thai basil leaves used in the preparation was grown at home.
