Chocolate muffin – a classic with a lot of variations
Chocolate muffins are a classic you can vary in all eternity with different toppings and fillings. This is a basic recipe that you can experiment with and add flavors or toppings of your liking. A couple of my favorites are to stir pieces of white chocolate in the batter or flavor them with orange. Or why not a creamy chocolate topping?
Simple, common ingredients – nothing you haven’t heard of before
A lot of new vegans feels like it’s too complicated to bake vegan with new ingredients and to bake in a different way then they’re used to. These muffins are therefore made of ingredients that most people have at home. They are easy to make and makes it easy to choose a vegan alternative!
More vegan sweets
If you want tips on more vegan sweets that are great for both dessert and to have with a cup of coffee, I would highly recommend my raw coconut caramel cheesecake, which has received nice reviews from those who tried it.
Or why not make a bunch of sweet blueberry muffins thats appreciated in all occasions?
