In my opinion, chocolate chip muffins are the best kind of muffins. Finding chocolate chip muffins at the store that are vegan or healthy is no easy task. That’s why I made these homemade vegan chocolate chip muffins that are vegan, healthy, and low in sugar, but don’t compromise on taste.
Bananas: To keep the sugar low in this recipe, I used a ripe banana both as an egg replacer and to add some extra natural sweetness. I also replaced some of the sugar with stevia. I like using stevia because it has no calories and does not raise blood sugar levels.
Chocolate Chips: For this recipe, I used both vegan chocolate chips and dark chocolate chunks. To make the dark chocolate chunks, I just broke apart a dark chocolate bar. I wanted to have some sweet chocolate chips to satisfy my sweet tooth, as well as some healthy dark chocolate.
Flour: You can use whatever kind of flour you’d like, but I used oat flour to make the recipe gluten free.
Peanut Butter: I also used peanut butter because it’s another great binding agent and a good oil replacer. It also just pairs amazing with anything chocolatey!
That being said, here are all of the ingredients you will need: oat flour, banana, almond milk, maple syrup, stevia, peanut butter, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla, a pinch of salt, and your vegan chocolate chips as well as dark chocolate chunks.
Making your vegan chocolate chip muffins:
To make your chocolate chip muffins, combine your dry ingredients in a large bowl. This is the oat flour, stevia, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
In a separate bowl, combine your wet ingredients. Start by mashing your banana with a fork. Then add the almond milk, maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla.
Slowly (about one cup at a time), add the dry ingredients to the wet. It makes it easier if you use a hand mixer. After you have combined all of the ingredients, add the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is preheating, line a muffin pan with muffin liners and add the batter to each muffin cup. You can add some chocolate chips and chunks to the top of the muffins, if you wish.
Bake your vegan chocolate chip muffins for about 25-30 minutes, until the tops of the muffins start to become golden brown.
Enjoy these muffins on their own, or with some coconut yogurt and fruit!
