I realized that I didn't have a chocolate muffin recipe, so I played around a little and came up with this one. I added some almond meal for a little extra nutrition, and these are egg free, but they don't taste that way. These are so decadent, no one would ever guess they are vegan. And I think that is kind of my goal with vegan treats...it's fine with me that we don't eat dairy or eggs, but I don't want our treats to taste like they are lacking anything. If we are eating dessert, I want it to be a treat...if it can be healthier, that's great, but I still want it to taste awesome.
This recipe represents my blog, because it is a sweet, delicious treat, but still a bit healthier. These muffins are a nice balance between the two, and that's what my blog and recipes tend to be about.
1/2 cup vegan buttery spread
2 flax seed egg replacers
1/2 cup sugar
2. t. vanilla
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup oat flour (regular flour or gluten free flour would work, too).
