I have been away for a while, thank you for showing your concern and asking why there are no new posts from Bhaili. Feedback and encouragement from you all have brought me back here. 🙂

These awesome pistachio and cranberry muffins are perfect for festival time. If you are looking options of healthy bakes this festive season do try egg-less malpua muffins with orange rabdi. Instant gulab-jamuns and Instant moong daal halwa are good option if you want make something traditional in no time.

This is a super easy recipe to make healthy egg-less muffins bursting with natural flavors. Combination of pistachio and cranberry blend very well. When you take a bite of these muffins taste of pistachio is so evident even though no artificial essence is used. My husband said it tastes better than any pistachio barfi. 🙂

The best part about this bake is that its totally guilt free. Its made with whole-wheat and honey, additionally no baking soda is used. It’s totally a guilt free indulgence. If you prefer healthy guilt-free healthy baking try Egg-less Ragi cardamom cookies, millet flour and sesame seed cake, egg-less ragi flour orange cake.

Here is the list of ingredients.


  • Whole wheat flour: 60 g
  • Cornflour: 20 g
  • Pistachio powder: 30 g
  • Butter: 50 g
  • Honey: 60 g
  • Baking Powder: ¼ tsp
  • Vinegar: 1/8 tsp
  • Milk: ¼ cup
  • Dry cranberry: 2 tbsp.
  • Pistachio flakes for garnishing


  • Roast pistachio on low heat for a minute. On cooling grind these to make fine powder. Roasting nuts prior to baking enhances their flavor.
  • Sieve flours, pistachio powder, baking powder for 5 times.

I know you must be thinking five times! Trust me extra sieving does make the difference. Sieving incorporates airs and makes these whole-wheat muffins rise well.

  • Beat butter and honey for a minute.
  • Add flour, vinegar, milk and fold them together to form a smooth batter.
  • Line the molds and pour in the batter. Sprinkle chopped cranberry and tap molds gently to release any trapped air. Bake in a preheated oven @ 160 degree centigrade for 20 minutes or until skewer comes clean.
  • Quantity mentioned above makes six muffins.
