WHAT ARE CHOCOLATE CHIPS MUFFINS?
Chocolate Chips Muffins are your ideal snack and dessert (or even breakfast?) that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Especially if you choose to go for HEALTHY Chocolate Chips Muffins, then nothing can go wrong!
HOW TO MAKE VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIPS MUFFINS FROM SCRATCH?
To make these vegan Chocolate Chips muffins, you will need only 8 simple ingredients that you can find anywhere and everywhere:
–potato starch (or cornstarch)
–stevia sugar (or any other sweetener)
Flour and starch for the cushy texture. Nut butter and mashed banana for the creamy consistency. And a generous amount of dark chocolate because chocolate makes everything more exciting! Plus, the chocolate is still melting when coming out of the oven…
HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY BANANA CHOCOLATE MUFFINS?
Making Banana Chocolate Chips Muffins simply means you will use ripe bananas as a sweetener. Bananas are also great to adjust the consistency of a recipe. We will simply mash the bananas and mix it with the rest of the ingredients.
And fun fact; when bananas are ripe, the fruit starch turns into sugar, which is why we will use ripe bananas for this recipe. Plus, the riper the banana the higher the concentration of vitamins and nutrients. Long story short, ripped banana are super healthy, easier to digest and can be instrumental to prevent diseases!
If you don’t like or don’t have bananas, applesauce is a great substitute for bananas.
ARE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS BAD FOR YOU?
Chocolate Chips Muffins are NOT bad for you, especially if you avoid using animal products such as cow milk or butter (what’s wrong with dairy?). This recipe is 100% vegan and is therefore made WITHOUT milk, eggs or butter.
Moreover, this recipe is also OIL-FREE, which means it is lower in calorie but also healthier than traditional muffins. (Click on this link to get insight into the reasons why you should avoid consuming too much oil.)
Even though I consider these Chocolate Chips Muffins healthy, they do contain gluten. So if you are gluten intolerant, sensitive or allergic, feel free to visit these No-Bake Berry Energy Balls (only 4 ingredients) or this Vegan Chocolate Stuffed Pancakes (gluten-free).

WHEN TO ADD CHOCOLATE CHIPS TO MUFFINS? – BEST CHOCOLATE CHIPS?
Add the chocolate chips after mixing the rest of the ingredients; when the muffin dough is already smooth and uniform.
To make chocolate chips, I use a 72% dark chocolate bar of 150 grams and simply cut it in pieces using a knife. This way you can choose the size of your chocolate chips. You can also use pre-made dark chocolate chips if desired.
HOW TO COOK CHOCOLATE CHIPS MUFFINS?
15 minutes at 180.C (356.F), or until edges of the muffins are slightly brown. Yes, it’s as simple as this!
First of all, if you’d like to make vanilla Chocolate Chips Muffins, simply add a teaspoon of vanilla extract with the rest of the ingredients to add a slight vanilla taste to these muffins.
I use stevia sugar for this recipe. If desired, you can replace it with any other powdered sugar (coconut, white, brown…). But keep in mind it will slightly affect the final flavor and calorie count (see nutrition facts at the end of the page).
These Chocolate Stuffed Muffins are originally made with almond milk, however, you can also use any other plant milk (oat, cashew, rice…).
