Gluten-Free | Oil-Free | Refined Sugar-Free
Today I’m sharing another great recipe that I’m very proud of. These Vegan Double Chocolate Muffins contain only 11 ingredients and also gluten-free, oil-free, and refined sugar-free!
I was surprised by how well these turned out. These muffins are moist despite containing no added oils. These remind me of the delicious pre-made bakery-style muffins you find in grocery stores.
Simple Step-By-Step for Making These Vegan Double Chocolate Muffins
To make these muffins start by making your flax “eggs” in a small bowl and set that aside. In another bowl add the dry ingredients along with the coconut sugar and whisk. In a different bowl add the coconut milk, the apple cider vinegar, and the vanilla extract and mix to combine. Add the wet ingredients and the flax “eggs” to the bowl of dry ingredients and whisk until fully combined. Fold in the chocolate chips then scoop the batter into the muffin cups and bake!
Most muffin recipes make 10 – 12 muffins but this recipe is for a smaller batch of 6 – 8 muffins.
When I was creating this recipe I wanted to use as few ingredients as possible while also making sure this recipe was vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, and refined sugar-free. That’s not always easy to do when it comes to baking, which is why I’m so happy with how this recipe turned out.
As advertised, this recipe is gluten-free. If you are making this recipe for someone with gluten allergies, make sure you use oats/oat flour that has not been cross contaminated with products containing gluten. Always check the allergy information on the product.
Final Thoughts for Making These Vegan Double Chocolate Muffins
- When making this recipe I recommend using a high-quality full-fat coconut milk. I prefer to use coconut milk without added thickeners.
- I also recommend using dutch-process cocoa powder because it makes these even richer in flavor, but you can use regular cocoa powder if you prefer. I used this dutch-process cocoa powder from Amazon for this recipe.
- Lastly, you can use whatever type of non-dairy chocolate chips that you prefer but they are likely to contain refined sugar. If you want to use refined sugar-free non-dairy chocolate chips, I recommend using these chocolate chips from Amazon. You can also find several chocolate bars that are vegan and refined sugar-free at most health food stores. Just chop the chocolate into small pieces and use that in place of the chocolate chips.
