Still Craving Chocolate? Make This Vegan Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Blender Muffins

The chocolate muffins were adapted from the original Flourless Blender Muffins.

As soon as I saw the popularity of the original version, of course I had to come up with a chocolate version too.

My first chocolate experiment yielded muffins that sank completely in the centers… but they were still delicious, and you’d better believe I still ate them!

After polishing off the first batch, I focused on a second experiment, which yielded perfect fudgy muffins with a rich brownie-like flavor.

The muffins are sweeter and have a fudgier texture if you let them sit overnight before eating, and the liners will peel off easily the next day.

Make sure to drain and rinse the beans well; or cooked beans can be used instead of canned if you’d prefer.

The muffins can be completely flourless, and it’s easy to make them into different flavors by throwing in a handful of shredded coconut or exchanging the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips, by adding 1/2 tsp of instant coffee or a few drops of coconut extract, by using different nut butters, or by choosing to use applesauce, mashed banana, or sweet potato.

(Here’s the best way how to cook sweet potatoes.)

Flourless Chocolate Blender Muffins

Soft and healthy chocolate blender muffins for breakfast or snack.
4.96/5 (55)
Total Time 12 minutes
Yield 8 muffins


  • 1 can black beans, or 1 1/2 cup cooked (for keto, try these Keto Muffins)
  • 1/3 cup mashed overripe banana, applesauce, or sweet potato
  • 1/3 cup quick or rolled oats, or 1/2 cup almond meal (or flour of choice, excluding coconut)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of choice or allergy-friendly sub
  • 3-5 tbsp mini chocolate chips, not optional – omit at own risk
  • 2 tbsp regular cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp dutch cocoa powder, or additional regular
  • 2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda


  • *If you’re a visual learner like I am, be sure to watch the recipe video above!
    Preheat oven to 350 F and line 8-9 muffin cups. Drain beans and rinse extremely well, then pat dry. This is important because it gets rid of any bean flavor. Blend all ingredients except chips until smooth in a blender or high-quality food processor. (If using a blender with no tamper, stop occasionally to stir ingredients with a spoon so they blend evenly.) Stir in mini chips. Portion into the muffin cups – don’t overfill or they will rise and then sink in the centers. Add chips to top if desired. Bake 12 minutes. They will look underdone, which is what you want. Transfer the muffins to a container and cover overnight in the fridge. They firm up perfectly!  As with the non-chocolate version, these muffins are supposed to be super fudgy, not fluffy and floury like traditional muffins. Not everyone will love the texture, but if you like the original version, you will probably like these as well! Muffins last 3-4 days refrigerated or 2-3 weeks frozen.

    The title to a recipe like this should be OVERNIGHT Chocolate muffins to warn people upfront un the most obvious way possible that these can’t just be made in the morning like people often do on a Sat or Sun

    People are extremely busy these days and skim things, not looking for fine print (or reading recipes all the way through, regardless of traditional advice – they’re just that stressed).

    You don’t want to be checking why your muffins are liquid inside – the discovering these have to sit for hours in the fridge – while a small child is crying because they aren’t going to be ready

    • Maddie says

      Mine were fully cooked after 12 minutes, no issues here. However the flavor did improve overnight! They were still mouthwatering eating them immediately after taking out of the oven!

  2. Maddie says

    These remind me of the muffins from Sam’s Club/Costco… they are AMAZING! (I used oat flour, maple syrup and applesauce for the options)

  3. Molly says

    Omg these are delicious and sooo gooey and fudgy! I had one for breakfast 20 mins after taking them out of the oven and it was perfect but I’m sure they will be even better tomorrow! I used applesauce instead of banana and made into 6 muffins.

  4. Lisa says

    How much almond flour to use? 1/2 cup? Thank you! 🙂

    Btw, I have made these before but I no longer eat oats (they were amazing by the way – recommend a double batch).

  5. MBC says

    Made these for a vegan bday party. I was not confident at all especially since the bday girl is the only vegan but they were absolutely delicious! In fact I have people asking me for the recipe!

  6. Sarah says

    I’ve been making a batch of these muffins every week for probably three months now, so it’s about time I left a review. I double the applesauce/banana, add a teaspoon of cinnamon, and omit the chocolate chips in this recipe and it turns out great. I am so satisfied when I eat these brownie muffins and just wanted to offer a humble, “Thanks” for such a great and versatile recipe!

  7. Mary says

    These are amazing! I’ve been making the non chocolate ones for awhile. The kids love them and so do I! I finally made these and will definitely add this to many more breakfasts! I used around 1/2 cup of banana and 1/3 cup peanut butter as I’m not one to measure (except for the salt and baking powder). They were phenomenal! Thank you so much!

  8. Jamie says

    I love this recipe! I make a batch almost every weekend!

    I sub out a Tbsp of oatmeal for an equal amount of flax. I Iet the flax bloom in the applesauce while I assemble the other ingredients.

    I have used cannelini beans when I didn’t have black beans and they turned out just as good.

  9. Erica says

    One of my absolute favorite recipes and a staple of our house! The rich, chocolatey flavor combined with reasonable healthiness is hard to beat.

  10. Aziza says

    The muffins are AMAZING. I improvised by substituting the black beans with pinto beans, maple syrup with coconut sugar, didn’t put oatmeal as I didn’t have any left, and put 1 whole banana. I made 5 big muffins and ate two 2 hours after I took them off the oven! Decadent, fudgy and delicious. This is the second recipe I do from your recipes and it didn’t disappoint. Thank you Kate!
