double chocolate chip muffins (V & GF)

This recipe for double chocolate chip muffins is vegan, gluten-free, and 100% healthy. But don’t think that means they don’t pack big flavour! These double chocolate chip muffins are tender and filled with chocolatey goodness.

I’ve severed these to my friends and no one believes me when I tell them they are healthy, and vegan too! I love these muffins for breakfast (gotta have chocolate for breakfast!), or for a treat after dinner.

This recipe can easily be made non-vegan by substituting flax eggs with real eggs, and coconut oil with butter.
