Chocolate Mini Muffins

(makes 22-24)

  • 1/2 cup spelt or all-purpose flour (65g) (or Bob’s gf plus 1/4 tsp xanthan gum)
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder (15g) (not Dutch)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar of choice or xylitol (90g)
  • handful mini chocolate chips, optional
  • 1/4 cup mayo-style spread (such as Earth Balance, Vegenaise, or even homemade cashew mayo) (58g)
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (7g)
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp water (95g) OR 1/4 cup carrot juice plus 2 tbsp water

Mini Muffins Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 F and grease your mini muffin tins. In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients (and chips, if using). Sift very well. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients and whisk until the mayo is completely smooth. Now pour wet into dry and stir until just combined. Immediately pour into the mini muffins pans (2/3 full each) and bake 20 minutes, then let sit 10 minutes. Pop out (go around the edges with a spoon if needed).

    Hi Katie. I just found your website and LOVE it!! Is there any way to make the chocolate muffins with GF flour & no xanthan gum? My daughter has corn, soy, gluten, and other allergies, and most xanthan gum is grown with/on corn. thanks in advance

  2. Jannah says

    These tasted so good!! I followed the exact recipe using vegenaise. In fact all the recipes I’ve tried from you taste delicious! Thanks a lot !!:)

  3. Manasa says

    This is a fabulous recipe Katie, with very clever ingredient replacement! Katie. I also substituted the sugar with honey and it still came out perfectly. Now I just need to buy that mini muffin tin for next time!

    These are awesome holy gosh! I added semi sweet chocolate chip too it, thinking it might be dry without oil or eggs, but no, they were very moist and didn’t need extra chocolate to fudgeyy it up. Will make again, and again, next time, no extra chocolate to keep it “lighter” lol! Thanks Katie

  5. Debbie says

    Would I be able to modify the recipe by subbing coconut or almond flour? I’m limited on my flour options right per doctor’s orders. Also do you think I could use coconut oil or butter in lieu of the mayo spread? I’m in dire need of a chocolate fix and these look so good!

  6. Kate says

    If I wanted to substitute very ripe banana for the mayo, do you think that would work? Would you suggest using the same amount (1/4 C.)?
