These Vegan & Gluten-Free Chocolate Muffins are exactly what I needed to satisfy my sweet craving! Fluffy and sweet little muffins that are made with 8 simple ingredients and ready in less than 10 minutes.
I think muffins are the perfect answer when you are craving cakes. They bake much quicker than large cake and give you the freedom to improvise by adding different ingredients in the middle of each one. I like to add some peanut butter for a very indulgent treat.
I like to use the Ombar chocolate they are made with delicious and natural ingredients, making it hard not to eat the entire bar. The chocolate chips on top are optional but highly recommended 😊.
Feel free to add some nuts to the mix such as walnuts or hazelnuts, and some cacao nibs which has many health benefits thanks to its high mineral content.
For the flour you can choose to use a plain flour if you are not gluten intolerant. The best gluten-free flour needs to be a mix of different flours such as rice, corn, and buckwheat flours for best results.
As you may have notice the amount of oil in this recipe is very little compare to the rest of the ingredients. I like to use rapeseed oil for it’s neutral taste.
You can enjoy these muffins slightly warm with a cup of chai tea like I did 😉 or keep them in an airtight container up to 5 days.
