There’s no better pick-me-up then a delicious, fluffy, chocolate packed muffin on a busy day – or any day, really. I have always had a deep adoration for anything chocolate…it’s the holy grail to happiness in my daily life. Some days a single chocolate square is enough to satisfy my cravings.

Cooking tips

The apple cider vinegar works together with the baking powder to make the muffins rise and get the real muffins shape. A lot of vegan muffins can tend to get a little flat, because there’s no eggs in them. Even with using flax eggs, vegan baking often get flat on top. I don’t claim to know how, but adding apple cider vinegar to your muffins batter, recreates the same effect as eggs. I know it sounds strange, but it’s a step that shouldn’t be missed. And luckily you can’t taste the vinegar once the muffins are cooked.

How is these Super Simple Vegan Chocolate Muffins made? It’s so easy:

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes
Makes: 12

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp instant espresso powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup vegan butter, melted
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Line a muffin pan with 12 muffin paper liners (if you’re making large muffins they will make around 9 muffins).
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, instant espresso powder, vanilla extract and salt. Once everything is combined, gently whisk in the apple cider vinegar, almond milk and melted vegan butter, being careful not to whisk it too much.
  • Carefully fold in the chocolate chips and divide the batter evenly in the muffin pan.
  • Bake the muffins in the middle of the oven for 2o minutes or until the muffin is cooked (use a toothpick to test if there’s dough sticking to it when you insert it into the muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are ready).
  • Let the muffins cool 10 minutes before removing them from the pan.
