Chocolate Chip Vegan Muffins

Written by McDonald, T.  |  Date 25th of July 2022

What could be better than a chocolate chip muffin?  A batch of them!  With this in mind, let us make a whole batch of lovely light vegan chocolate chip muffins.  This is very easy and requires no special ingredients.  


  • Use cases or your muffins will stick to the muffin tin and ruin them.  You have been warned! 
  • Use oil to stop the muffin sticking to the cases. Either use spray oil or coat the insides using a pastry brush. 
  • Place a tin of water on the shelf under the shelf with the muffins on.  This is also to stop the muffins sticking to the cases. 
  • You can, if you want, use half water (70 ml) and half vegan milk (70 ml). Some people feel it changes the texture and prefer it.
  • Once out of the oven, place on a cooling rack.  This will help the muffin not to stick to the case too.


  • 150 g all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp of salt
  • 20 g cocoa powder (about 2 – 3 tbsp)
  • 1/4 cup of sugar

Wet ingredients 

  • 140 of warm water
  • 50 g vegan chocolate chips
  • 40 ml light olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 190C.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.

  3. Mix in the wet ingredients and stir to combine a few times.

  4. Don’t over mix or the muffins will go a little too firm

  5. Add the chocolate chip and carefully fold them into the batter.

  6. Add the case to the muffin tin and fill each one with batter.

  7. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes.  Use a cake tester.  If the tester comes out clean, the muffins are done.  

  8. Allow to cool on a cooling rack.

These were great with a super chocolate flavour.  As you can see, the muffins have risen really well although they did stick to the case a bit.  I used oil to line the cases in the next batch and placed a tin of water under the shelf with the muffins on in the oven, but it never made much difference.  However, the muffins still tasted fine.
