  6. Sangee, This is regarding your question on Chocolate muffin
    I took the basic recipe from joyofbaking.com and tweaked a lot to make it vegan and healthy
    I added flax seed powder to replace one egg and curd for another.
    You can replace flax seed powder by either adding egg or using All purpose flour instead of wheat flour.
