Eggless chocochip Date Muffins

For the 3rd day of Blogging Marathon with theme chocolate, I decided to bake these muffins. Today being 5th of september, I wanted to bake an eggless dish since this post is particularly Dedicated for my teachers!!!I have been blessed by 2 most wonderful people who happened to teach me 20 yrs back and who still have the same connect with me even though I haven't seen them for the last 20 yrs. I am so lucky to be in touch with them who have helped children by not only teaching but shaping up their character as well.

I had bookmarked these wonderful muffins from Sharmispassion
