“I developed this recipe with the goal of making a sweet, chocolatey treat with some strawberries I picked. I had frozen and thawed the strawberries, but you can use fresh if you wish. The muffins use techniques that you will probably recognize from brownie recipes, so they are really a cross between muffins and brownies.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Grease 12 muffin tins with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and baking powder.
  3. Melt the margarine and 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips carefully in the microwave. While this mixture cools, mix the egg replacer, vanilla, oil, and soymilk in a separate bowl. Add the margarine-chocolate chip mixture to this bowl once it has cooled for a couple of minutes.
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Make sure the batter is cool, and then stir in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins. Make sure strawberries are washed and cored, and press one into the center of each batter-filled muffin tin. Cover completely with batter.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips evenly over the batter and gently press into the tops just enough to hold them in place.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes, then gently remove from muffin tin.
