You know what I love about muffins? They’re like cupcakes, but they’re totally acceptable to eat for breakfast. These vegan double chocolate muffins are everything you want in a good muffin- rich, moist, satisfying, and they pair perfectly with coffee or a good cup of tea.

The secret ingredient to these muffins is instant espresso powder. I always have a jar of this stuff in my baking cupboard because adding espresso to chocolate baked goods enhances the chocolate flavour making them taste even richer. You don’t taste the espresso, you just taste gorgeous vegan double chocolate muffin goodness. It’s also handy to have for those mornings when I run out of coffee beans- I know I can get at coffee fix in a jiff if need be! BUT if you aren’t into the idea of espresso powder, you can totally skip it and these muffins will still be gorgeous.

The weird ingredient in these muffins is apple cider vinegar. If you have made some of my other baked good you have seen this used in everything from my chocolate cake, to donuts, to quick bread, and waffles. Apple cider vinegar is a great substitute for eggs as it helps baked goods fluff up when reacting with the baking powder in the recipe. I know it sounds weird, but the flavour cooks right out and you would never know it was there. Trust me on this one.

Follow this recipe and homemade vegan chocolate muffins will be coming out of the oven in no time.

To make vegan double chocolate muffins:

1 bowl vegan chocolate muffin recipe.

For medium-sized muffins, line 12 wells of a muffin pan with paper liners or lightly grease the pan. For larger sized muffins line or grease only 9 wells of a muffin pan.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, instant espresso powder and salt.

*Instant espresso powder will enhance the taste of the chocolate making these muffins taste even richer, but if you prefer not to use it or don’t have it on hand you can skip it.

These chocolate muffins are so easy to make and their vegan too!

Then add the plant-based milk, light oil, and apple cider vinegar and stir until just combined. Don’t over mix! Now gently fold in the chocolate chips.

double chocolate muffins that are also vegan? Um, yes please!

Divide the batter evenly among the 12 or 9 wells of the prepared muffin pan. Bake 20 to 26 minutes for until the muffins have cracks on the top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. *Test several spots with the toothpick as you may hit a melted chocolate chip which could mislead you into thinking they aren’t cooked.

If making 12 muffins the timing will be on the lower side and if making 9 muffins it will be on the higher side. Let the muffins cool in the pan before removing.

These muffins are amazing served still a little warm from the pan but they also keep fresh for several days when kept at room temperature or can be frozen in an air-tight container.

Bon appetegan!
