OH the double chocolate chocolatey deliciousness is here! Vegan chocolate chocolate chip muffins at your service!
Deliciously warm fudgy brownie style muffins that is.
These chocolate chocolate chip muffins are so easy, there’s not even a troubleshooting guide. It’s not like blueberry muffins where you have to make sure the blueberries don’t sink, in this case, the chocolate chips stay put!
In my case I used chocolate chunks cut directly from a slab of vegan chocolate. I just can’t find chocolate chips in this part of the world.
But chocolate chunks work fine! You just have to have some patience to cut them!
I wanted to make a slightly ‘lighter’ version (and really, I do mean slightly) so I swapped out half the coconut oil for applesauce. Just delicious!
They taste like fudgy brownies actually. And when they’re still warm from the oven you have melting chocolate inside, soooo good.
You will love these chocolate chocolate chip muffins, they are:
- Like fudgy brownie muffins
- Double chocolate
- Perfectly sweet
- Ideal as a snack
All that and they’re even a ‘little’ lighter too! It’s a win/win! Have ’em for breakfast, have ’em for lunch, have ’em anytime! Keep them covered at room temperature where they will stay fresh for a few days.
