Description

These vegan pumpkin muffins are moist and sweet, and the addition of dark chocolate chips transforms this baked treat into a perfect indulgence for morning coffee or an afternoon snack.


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour ( see Note 1)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with muffin liners (preferably foil) and spray them lightly with cooking spray
  2. In a small bowl, combine the almond milk and ground flax. Stir well and set aside
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Add the almond milk/flax mixture and mix well
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and chocolate chips. Slowly add to pumpkin mixture, whisking gently until just incorporated (do not over mix!)
  5. Spoon the batter evenly in muffin cups (we like to use a large ice cream scoop). Bake at 350F until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Let them cool completely

Notes

  1. 1 cup self-rising flour = 1 cup flour + 1 1/2 tsp baking powder +1/4 tsp salt.                                                    1 1/2 cups self-rising flour = 1 1/2 cups flour + 2 1/4 tsp baking powder + 1/4 plus 1/8 tsp salt
