Vegan Banana Double Chocolate Muffins

Hello!

I hope y’all had great holidays! Mine were fantastic. I went to Spain to see my family. My baby girl did great on the plane! (kudos to her!). I ate so much in Spain, food is so good. Wine is amazing… Gin and tonics are delicious. If you follow me on instagram you probably know what I am talking about… 😉

Today I am making something completely different. I am making vegan muffins. Don’t let the word vegan scare you. You will not notice that these muffins are made out of plant-based ingredients! The muffins are very chocolaty, banana-ey, moist … you name it!

Ingredients (ALL ingredients are VEGAN).

  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour (SPOON the flour directly into the measuring cup from the container-  DO NOT scoop the flour from the container or bag directly with the measuring cup)
  • 1 cup dark unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl or using your stand mixer, mash the bananas (If using a mixer, mash them on medium speed).
  4. Add the sugar and mix.
  5. Meanwhile in a large bowl, sift the flour, cacao powder, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Whisk to combine the ingredients.
  6. Add the maple syrup, olive oil, agave, vanilla, coffee and milk to the mashed bananas and mix.
  7. Add the dry ingredients to the mashed bananas bowl. Mix gently (on low speed) until all ingredients are fully combined for about 30 seconds. Don’t over-mix or the muffins will be tough.
  8. Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and fold with a spatula.
  9. Scoop evenly into a prepared muffin tin.
  10. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips over the tops of the muffins.
  11. Bake at 425 degrees for 5 minutes, then, keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue to bake for 15 minutes  or until a toothpick comes out *almost* clean. 

Bon profit!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
