Healthy Chocolate Muffins
These healthy chocolate muffins are gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free. Using honey as a sweetener and utilizing applesauce and zucchini for moisture, you would never guess that these decadent chocolate muffins hold so much goodness.
- 1½ cups Oat Flour
- ⅓ cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- ⅓ cup Honey
- 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- ⅓ cup Unsweetened Applesauce
- 1 cup Shredded Zucchini
- ½ cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- ¾ cup Vegan Chocolate Chips
Preheat your oven to 350˚ and line a muffin tin with liners.
Whisk the oat flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda together in a small bowl.
In a medium sized bowl combine the olive oil, honey, vanilla, almond milk, and applesauce. Add the oat flour mixture to the liquid ingredients.
Mix in the zucchini and ½ cup of the chocolate chips. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top of the muffins.
Bake the muffins for 20-23 minutes or a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean and the muffins will spring back upon a light tap to the top.
The muffins will keep at room temperature for 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.
