Made with no oil and whole wheat flour… these healthy little gems are moist and chocolaty. I bake them in a silicone muffin pan and they pop right out. This recipe is quick and easy to prepare and makes about 8 muffins. They are so good in right out of the oven, warm and gooey. I also enjoy them in the morning with coffee or in the evening with a cup of tea! You are gonna love them! Non vegans love them too.
Preheat oven to 350 and assemble dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
a dash of fine salt
a dash of cinnamon
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 snack cup of unsweetened applesauce (or 1/3 cup)
1 cup non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegan mini chocolate chips
After assembling the dry ingredients add the wet and stir until just combined. Don’t over mix it. Stir in the mini chocolate chips. Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan (3 quarters the way full) and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Check with a toothpick and if the toothpick is not clean… leave them in for another 1 to 2 minutes. You do not want to over cook these. When they are done take them out and let them cool down on a cooling rack.
