✔️Ingredients You’ll Need
Notes on some of the ingredients, the full list of ingredients and their measurements can be found in the recipe card below.
Self raising flour is super easy to work with. It does the job for you to help rise your muffins. I like using organic unbleached.
If you don't have this use all purpose flour (plain) with a teaspoon of baking powder + ¼ teaspoon baking soda.
Maple syrup will sweeten these egg free muffins
Dairy free milk of your choice, I generally select almond milk
Dairy free butter - this version creates a fluffier muffin. I have substituted this for unsweetened applesauce for a no added oil version, the muffins turn out delicious just not as fluffy/big, and have a little bit of sponginess.
Vegan chocolate chips of your choice. I have used a block of vegan chocolate which I then cut up into small pieces
Vanilla extract/essence to help enhance flavouring
🧁How To Eggless Chocolate Chip Muffins
Step 1 - In a large mixing bowl or mixer, add flour and make a well in the centre. Add all wet ingredients into the well and whisk until it comes together. Do not over whisk. Fold in chocolate chips.
Step 2 - Scoop batter into well greased muffin tray (or if making these oil free, scoop the batter into non-stick muffin liners) Top muffins with additional choc chips (optional)
Step 3 - Bake in a preheated oven of 180C (356F) for approximately 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle of muffin. Allow to cool before transferring. Store in an airtight container.
⭐ Pro Tips
When baking, the best results are always achieved through measuring ingredients on a kitchen scale (affiliate link) using the metric system.
Flour should be fluffed, scooped and measured. Do not pack down.
Chocolate chips - chocolate chips can be swapped for any vegan chocolate bar that can be smashed up into pieces; however make sure the pieces are similar in size to traditional choc chips
Maple syrup - can be swapped out for your preferred sweetener like coconut sugar
Don't over mix the batter, try to minimise the amount of mixing to avoid the muffins turning out dense
Allow muffins to cool for at least 15 minutes before taking them out of the tray, this will ensure they stay in tact
Store these vegan choc chip muffins in an airtight container (once completely cooled to avoid condensation) for several days in your pantry
This eggless chocolate chip muffin recipe yields 12 small muffins. If you're in need of a great 12 cup muffin tray, try this one (affiliate link)
If you'd like to add a topping to them, try my vegan royal icing.
Generally this is because the batter has been over mixed. Try sifting flour to make it airy and measure out the right amounts, as more flour makes it dense. The batter shouldn't be runny.
Normally this is because the muffins are under baked. Do not open the oven during baking, set a timer as soon as they put into the oven.
