I have to say it. These vegan double chocolate muffins are some of the most delicious muffins! You will enjoy every bite for sure.

These are the kind of muffins that are not strictly for dessert. You can eat one (or two) anytime, as they’re super yummy as well as nutritious. Plus, they don’t contain a whole lot of sugar..

Oat Flour, Yogurt , and Extra Virgin Olive Oil

What gives these muffins that best of both worlds appeal, is what they’re made of. Along with the standard muffin ingredients, these muffins contain oat flour and also yogurt.

Oat flour is known for adding moistness to baked goods. And it’s also good for heart health. I usually combine it with regular flour since it tends to soak up moisture fast. And it makes batter thick if you don’t add enough liquid to it, or if the batter sits for a while.

My go-to oat flour is by Arrowhead Mills. It’s organic, which means the oats weren’t processed with pesticides or anything.

You can find it at most Whole Foods Markets. If you’re inclined, you can easily make your own oat flour. Just blend some oats in a blender for about five minutes, and you’re done..

The addition of non-dairy or dairy yogurt adds additional moisture, and also protein to the muffins. Also, the addition of extra virgin olive oil (light-tasting) ups the nutritional value of these muffins. Can’t beat that!

Absolutely Scrumptious..

You only need one bowl, plus simple ingredients to make them; which makes it even better. These muffins are super duper scrumptious. And they have that moist fluffy texture that a perfect muffin should have.

Yes, I do believe the flavor and taste of these muffins exceeds all of the expectations that I had for them originally. I recipe-tested a batch prior to these muffins that were almost perfect, but I wasn’t totally satisfied with how they tasted.

They came close to what I ultimately wanted them to taste like. But I didn’t want to put a recipe out there that I wasn’t super satisfied with, you know? I want you to experience the best version of this muffin recipe that I could possibly create.

Therefore I set out to test another batch of muffins that would hopefully meet my expectations. And thank God, they really do:)
