Moist Double Chocolate Whole Grain Vegan Muffins

My internship in the city ends soon, and I wanted to thank my mentors and all of those at the office who helped me learn so much this summer. So, I decided to make some delicious double chocolate vegan muffins! You can never go wrong with chocolate! These muffins are SO moist, omg you won’t even believe they are vegan. Even more, they are whole grain, butterless, eggless, dairy-free, and melting-in-your-mouth delicious!!! What can you want more from a healthy chocolate muffin? Like seriously. I told my sister that these were vegan and her eyes grew wide because she didn’t believe me. Now, a ten-year-old who is obsessed with chocolate desserts saying that means a lot. Try beating this recipe with a healthier muffin – I dare you! Yummmm, I’m literally eating one now. Enjoy!! Let me know how you and your friends/family enjoy them!

 

my sister caught by surprise eating the muffins !

The Recipe

Yields 12 large muffins

Serving Size: 1 muffin


DRY:

2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

 

WET:

3/4 cup canola oil

1/2 – 3/4 cup almond milk (you can use soy or hemp milk too)

1 cup vegan carob chips

—————————————————————————————————–

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line twelve muffin tins on a oven-safe pan or a muffin pan. Spray with PAM or line with a little oil (if you have tin muffin pans, they are already nonstick).

2. In a mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.

3. Add the wet ingredients except for the carob chips and stir properly till it becomes like a batter – consistency. Add less/more oil depending on if you want it to be less cakey (less oil) or more moist (more oil).

5. Fold in the carob chips and mix to distribute evenly.

6. Fill the twelve muffin tins evenly and place into the oven.

6. Bake for about 20 – 25 minutes and check if your muffins are cooked using a toothpick. Enjoy! I topped my finished muffins with a few extra carob chips when they were still hot so the chips melted slightly on top (completely optional – it just looked pretty!)

yumm the finished guilt-free muffins!

ahhh so chocolate-y and moist!
