Break into a warm, steamy, fluffy, homemade, melty-chocolate-chip-filled, vegan Chocolate Chip Muffin and I promise your day will be a little bit cozier. Fresh from the oven, these classic muffins are delicious as a snack or sweet treat. I love one paired with a steamy mug of chai tea or a frothy soy latte. Let the aroma of vanilla, nutty oats, chocolate chips and a hint of peanut butter says hello to your senses. Plus get my parchment paper jumbo muffin trick..
Chocolate Chip Muffins. These muffins are like eating a chocolate chip cookie with a little more staying power, a little more fluff, and a little less sweet.
These lovable muffins are simple and perfect. With fluffy oat-speckled muffin insides and melty chocolate chips in every crevice. Accents of vanilla and peanut butter in every cozy, yummy bite.
Jumbo Muffins. I was craving extra large muffins. Not the “Costco sized” muffins, but just something a bit fluffier, taller and plumper than the average, “regular sized muffin tin” muffin. But since I do not own a jumbo muffin tin right now, I had to improvise. I used cut out squares of parchment paper, folded up around the edges as my muffin liners, and allowed the extra tallness of the liners to act as a sort of jumbo muffin tin.
I over-filled my regular sized muffin tins quite a bit – this could only work by using these tall liners, I wasn’t sure if they would hold, but they did! The parchment paper also nicely colors the muffins to a caramel-y brown color.
I made 6 very large muffins and one small with this batter.
Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 1 cup all purpose flour (or substitute with your go-to flour)
- 1 cup whole rolled oats
- 3 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon pink salt
- ⅓ cup peanut butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil, melted
- ¾ cup non-dairy milk, room temperature
- 1 large banana
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup raw sugar, organic
- fold in:
- ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line muffin tins with muffin liners, parchment paper or grease well.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
- In a blender, combine all wet ingredients except the sugar. Blend until smooth.
- Pour the wet blender ingredients into the dry bowl and stir int he sugar. Fold until a smooth batter forms. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Spoon batter into muffin tins. I did six jumbo muffins using parchment paper in a regular muffin tin.
- For small muffins bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. For jumbo muffins, bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Muffins are ready when the tops begin puff up and brown slightly to a caramel color.
- Cool muffins and serve warm. Store leftover in the fridge or freezer.
