“This is a fantastic and quite healthy muffin. I prefer honey in this - though I know many vegans don't eat honey. It's also fine with agave nectar or turbinado sugar. This muffin is also a great base for adding in other healthy stuff. Try sneaking in some grated zucchini, using a ripe avocado in place of all or some of the oil, or pureed carrots with the mashed banana.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tin or line with paper cups.
  2. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, chia seeds and flax seed in a large bowl. Make sure it is well mixed.
  3. In a small cup, combine the soy milk with the apple cider vinegar and set aside.
  4. Mash or process the bananas, then add oil, honey (or your preferred sweetener) and vanilla to the banana puree.
  5. Make a well in the flour mixture. Then pour in the banana mixture and the soy milk/vinegar. Stir until just combined.
  6. Use an ice cream scoop to fill the muffin cups about 3/4 full with batter.
  7. For garnish, toss a few chocolate chips on top of each muffin.
  8. Bake for around 20 minutes - or until done.
