AKA “Mamma Muffins.” These are hands down my kids favorite homemade muffin. It is a sizable recipe, that can be made efficiently in a food processor, like a Cuisinart, or by hand, using two bowls and a spatula; one bowl for wet ingredients, the second for dry. **Substitutions & Notes at end of instructions**
Ingredients3 ripe bananas¼ - ⅓ cup Much Better Butter™ *1 - 1 ⅛ cup coconut oil 1 cup oat milk1 teaspoon vanilla¾ cup vegan / dark chocolate chips3 cups whole wheat flour¾ cup coconut sugar¼ organic brown sugar2 teaspoon ground cinnamon2 teaspoon baking powder1 teaspoon baking soda¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg (if you have it)1 teaspoon salt
How to Make Vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners. When filling the muffin cups ⅔ full, I find that there’s enough batter to make an additional four to five muffins. The options for the excess batter are: use a second muffin tin and fill each empty cup with a couple of tablespoons of water; fill four or five 5 oz ceramic ramekins with excess batter; use all the batter, filling each cup to the brim for a tray of super-sized muffins :) Toss chocolate chips into a food processor-- pulse until there are ample bits of chocolate bits and chocolate powder. Slice bananas directly into a bowl and add Roasted with Sea Salt Much Better Butter™. Pour in melted coconut oil, milk and vanilla. Pulse until well-blended.Add dry ingredients into the bowl and pulse until the ingredients are well blended. If the mixture looks too dry, add more milk. Fill muffin cups with batter and bake in preheated for 30 - 35 minutes until done. A toothpick inserted into the middle of one or two muffins should come out clean. Let muffins cool a couple of minutes before removing from the pan. On racks, cool muffins completely and transfer to an airtight container. If your kids don’t devour the muffins in one week, they can be stored in your refrigerator for a couple of weeks and still taste delicious-- bring to room temperature or warm up slightly in a toaster oven. Also, these muffins freeze well.ENJOY!– tinaNOTES on Ingredients:*Much Better Butter™: I use Roasted with Sea Salt-- feel free to try Honey Kissed.
