Vegan Chocolate Muffins

Gluten free plump soft tender chocolate muffins. Laced with chocolate chips, I love how these get a little bit gooey and even more delicious when given a little heat. They are pretty darn awesome just as they are, but who doesn’t love a warm chocolate muffin with a scoop of there favourite ice cream. That cold and hot combo is what good desserts are all about.

I do love these just as they are, even a day later when the flavours seem to settle and intensify that teeny bit more, served with a mug of my favourite coffee…basically any rich roast coffee once I have my much loved Oatly Barista milk at hand!

Muffins over all just wouldn’t be my thing. I make a few exceptions… chocolate or peanut butter based, or chocolate chip laced! Otherwise I prefer carrot cake in cake or loaf form, the same can be said for coffee cake, all the icing is a necessity and banana “bread” is just more ideal when you have a slice to toast the spread generously with your favourite nut butter. I say favourite nut butter, clearly I mean your favourite peanut butter, even if it’s not technically a nut.

These muffins won me over. Super simple to make, I went a little OTT on the baking powder and attempted to make these with a thicker Greek style yogurt the first time around which just didn’t yield quite as a delicious end result. They also rose unevenly which is just a random gripe I have when it comes to baking, especially when I have every intention of taking some snaps!

I made use of my favourite Nush foods vanilla cashew yogurt and my new favourite chocolate snack discovery, I Love Snacks 70% dark chocolate chips!
