Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins

These *slightly* healthier muffins make the perfect snack when you’re after a chocolatey, indulgent hit

INGREDIENTS (makes 12 muffins):

  • 180g applesauce (about 1 large apple cooked down if you make your own)
  • 60ml maple syrup 
  • 65g brown sugar 
  • 65g smooth peanut butter (plus extra to drizzle on top) 
  • ¼ tsp salt 
  • 120ml milk of choice 
  • 60g cocoa powder 
  • 160g wholemeal flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • ½ tsp baking soda 
  • 80g chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate (plus a bit extra for topping)

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C and line a muffin tray with 12 liners. 
  2. Whisk together the applesauce, maple syrup, brown sugar, peanut butter and salt in a large bowl
  3. Add in the milk and give the mixture another mix. 
  4. Sieve in the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and baking soda. 
  5. Mix together with a spatula until everything is combined – be careful not to overmix, the mixture should be quite thick. 
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips and scoop evenly into the muffin liners. Add a few more chocolate chips to the top of each muffin. 
  7. Bake for 18 minutes (use a skewer or toothpick in the centre to check if they’re done – if it comes out clean, they’re ready!) 
  8. Let them cool in the tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Drizzle with more peanut butter if desired or enjoy as they are!
